Deanna Bell (Griffes) Williams, 78, of Cheboygan, passed away on Friday, October 1, 2021. She was born in Muskegon on February 25, 1943, the daughter of Emory and Goldie (Sustek) Griffes.
Deanna attended the Grand Rapids School of Business and co-founded Williams Office Equipment in Cheboygan.
Deanna was a strong person in both mind and spirit. She enjoyed the simple things in life, such as bird watching, listening to music, watching old movies, beautiful flowers, and lighthouses. Most of all, Deanna loved her family. She always made you feel safe and accepted. She never judged and was always interested in what was going on in your life. Deanna will be dearly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
Deanna is survived by her three children, Ron (Ricci) Williams, Tammy (Dom) Juillet, and Jonathan (Dena) Williams, grandchildren, Anthony Juillet, Amanda (Eryn) Eustice, Taylor (Willie) Neelis, Jacob Juillet, Alli Juillet, Caitlin Williams, and Trent Williams, one great grandchild (whom she adored), Mason James Eustice, three siblings, Ernie (Carole) Griffes, Greg (Sylvia) Griffes, and Susan Griffes-Vogelar, and many beloved nieces and nephews. Deanna is preceded in death by her parents.
