Lorraine Carrie Deru: 1921-2004

Lorraine Carrie Deru of Hurricane, Utah, died Dec. 21, 2004. She was 82.

Deru was born Dec. 29, 1921, to Charles Camel Daniels and Pauline Agnes Bugay Daniels in Mount Harris, Colo. She was the sixth of nine children.

Deru married Leonard John Deru July 26, 1953. They were married 50 years. Deru loved life; she loved to cook, entertain and garden. She loved to bowl, golf and play bridge. She was an avid Broncos fan. In fact, when the Broncos went to their first Super Bowl, she was photographed by the Los Angeles Times, all dressed in her orange and blue. Deru donated many hours to volunteer work. She volunteered at the Catholic Thrift Store in St. George, the welcoming committee at Sky Mountain and at Share and Care. She also was in charge of the Junior golf program in Denver for many years. She was very generous in caring for her family and friends.

Deru is survived by her son, Fred Bergamo; and many nieces and nephews.

Deru was preceded in death by her husband, siblings, and her parents.

Her son, Fred, would like to thank her neighbors at Sky Mountain for their care and support through both Lorraine and Leonard’s illnesses and deaths.

Should friends desire, memorial contributions may be made to St. George Catholic Church /Thrift Store Fund, 259 W. 200 N. St., George, Utah. Services were held Dec. 27, 2004 at the St. George Catholic Church.

Lorraine truly was one of God’s special children.
