Deanna "Dee" Spendlove Bradley passed away February 9, 2021, following a car accident. Deanna was born at Fort Ord, Monterey, California, on January 14, 1955. She grew up in Salinas, California; Anchorage and Palmer, Alaska; Ogden, Utah; and Oakland, California. \n\nDee was preceded in death by her mother, LeOra Isom Spendlove (1987); step-mother, Jesse (Jan) Wallace (2007); infant sister, Francis Elaine (1945), brother, Dennis Spendlove (2019); and her beloved daughter, Kneesha Marie (1994).\n\nSurvived by husband Charles Richard Bradley (Chuck); son, John-Charles Bradley; father, Clifton Spendlove (Washington, Utah); sisters Sherry Spendlove (Asheville, North Carolina); Jolene (Michael) Allphin (Washington, Utah); and Susan (Ron) Bringhurst (Burley, Idaho) and her very special cat, Spooky.\n\nDee had a close family of neighbors and friends in Hurricane, Utah, who loved her dearly: Kathleen and Brent Kapp, Howard Echols, Lynn Tempest, and David Johnson. She was so thrilled when her long-time friend, Christine Putcher, visited her in Hurricane a few months ago. \n\nDeanna had a special love for horses. When she was young, she had many toy horses, including a model horse she had assembled and painted. Deanna also loved cats. Her first cat was a kitten she named Smokey. Her last cat, Spooky, was especially loving and therapeutic, often wrapping his front legs around her neck.\n\nAlways a champion for the underdog, Deanna aspired to participate in a Civil Rights March in the 60s. She was never able to make that dream come true. Always alert to and easily offended by injustices of any kind, her compassion for the underprivileged continued throughout her life. \n\nA rambunctious and dramatic child, the family always knew they were in for an enthusiastic reenactment of such things as the Saturday movie she had just seen, or the daily happenings at school. Deanna played the part of Beth in the South Ogden Jr. High production of Little Women. Her performance was lauded by many and her portrayal of Beth brought many to tears.\n\nDeanna attended Bonneville High School, and later graduated from a medical assistant program, She loved her employment as a medical assistant and worked in that profession as long as her health allowed. \n\nIn about 2008, when Deanna could no longer work, her sister, Susie, arranged for her to move to Burley, Idaho, so she could assist her. Deanna and Susie enjoyed canning together, and many other activites until Deanna needed to move again for her health. About 2015, Deanna moved to her parents' home town of Hurricane, Utah, where she could thrive much better in the warm climate and with the help of her brother, Dennis, father, Clifton, and skilled physicians. She was especially appreciative of Doctor Sarah Tisel, Neurologist, who helped so much with Deanna's Parkinsons Disease. \n\nThe family wishes to express appreciation to the Nelson Family Mortuary in Provo for their prompt and kind service at this unexpected and difficult time. A graveside service for Deanna and her loving brother, Dennis, will be held at the Hurricane Utah Cemetery on Thursday, April 29, 2021, at 11:00 a.m.
