Deidra was a kind-hearted and loving person. She was a mother, daughter, sister, cousin and a friend. Deidra always had her doors open to any and everyone. She was an ear when you needed to be heard and one thing everyone loved the most was her cooking and her amazing hugs. She had a genuine soul that will forever be loved and missed.
Deidra was predeceased by her grandson Dontrell Jackson Jr.
