I was fortunate enough to have met Deone Evans at Manor Animal Hospital, where I helped care for her beloved Siamese cat “Julius”. She loved her cats like family, and each one was very special to her.  It warms my heart to think of her reunited with her husband and all the kitties she loved so much. I will never forget her sweet and caring smile that would always greet us first when she walked through our doors. We will all miss her amazing ability to smile through any adversity. She was a true inspiration! My thoughts are with all of her family and friends.

Deone was such a life force and presence around the Green Room…always there assisting Hugh until he left us.  They are a team once more from the rail behind the last row…they could never sit…once more making theatre together.  My thoughts are with the family and all who were lucky enough to know this amazing lady.

What a well-lived life!
We will miss Deone.  I spent many an hour with her at her kitchen table, some times with a glass of white wine, looking over and clarifying by-laws for the Lancaster League.  What a sharp mind.    Thanks, Deone.

I read Deone’s obit with a heavy heart. What an amazing and very special woman!
I retired from F&M College’s Development Office five years ago. While there, I got to know Deone while helping her write Hugh’s obit and create a garden in his memory next to the College building that houses the Green Room Theatre. I will miss her…
With heartfelt condolences,
