Obituary for Deanna R. Tilton

PITTSFIELD-Deanna R. Tilton, 81, died peacefully on September 7, 2020, surrounded by her loving family in Pittsfield.

She was born on January 21, 1939, in Hartland, Maine, the daughter of the late Bert and Lena (Emery) Lovely. She attended Hartland schools and had been employed by C.M. Almy and various shoe shops before retiring. She currently helped manage the Pittsfield Re-Use Center with her dear friend, Jane.

Deanna was a very strong, independent woman. She was kind, generous with her time, selfless, and always thinking of others. She enjoyed knitting and crocheting. She sewed many lap bibs for the local nursing home patients and lovingly made pillows for our soldiers going overseas. She enjoyed family times at camp on Moose Pond and was nicknamed “Nana’s Taxi” for running the roads with family and friends.

She is survived by her children: Lloyd Wyman and companion Cheryl of Pittsfield, Patricia Richardson of Palmyra, Sandy Wyman Huff and husband Al of Hartland, Lori Reynolds and husband Stephen of Pittsfield, Jeff Wyman and wife Tammy of Palmyra, Douglas Wyman of Pittsfield, and Carol Nichols of Pittsfield; grandchildren: Jessie, Jamie, Trevor, Cristina, Stephanie, Ashley, Heidi, Logan, Andrius, Madeline, and Renee; 8 great-grandchildren and another to be born soon; special nephew, Richard Lovely; several nieces and nephews; and two best friends, Doris and Betty.

She was predeceased by her parents; husband, William Tilton; son-in-law, Tom Richardson; siblings: Myrtle Marble, Ransford Lovely, Marvin Lovely, and infant sister, Geraldine; nephews, Bruce and Barry; and niece, Linda.

A graveside service will be held at 2 p.m., Sunday, September 20, 2020, at the Pine Grove Cemetery, Route 152, Hartland, with Glenn Nichols officiating. A gathering will follow at Patty's Home, 14 Hicks Pond Road in Palmyra, for a time of celebration of life. All are welcome.
