Deammie Jo Blazek, the daughter of Margaret Ann (Garity) Blazek, was born on December 4, 1956, in Des Moines, Iowa. Deammie entered eternal rest on May 24, 2012, at the Bright Kavanagh House in Des Moines, Iowa at the age of fifty-five years.

Deammie grew up in the Prescott area and has lived in Des Moines, Iowa for the past fourteen years. Deammie graduated from Prescott High School with the Class of 1975, and she received an Associate Degree in Business from Southwestern Community College.

Deammie was married to Leslie George Granneman and was his constant companion for more than twenty years.

Deammie was employed by Fiserv, Inc. for the last thirteen years. She worked in Media Services in the production and distribution of bank and client records to their customers. Previous employment included cosmetology and Edward D. Jones & Co., Matura Action Corporation in Creston and American Republic Insurance.

Deammie demonstrated her generosity towards others by being a consistent donor to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and a long time member of the ASPCA. She was a parent chaperone for the Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa. Deammie was a blood donor who achieved the level of more than 1 and one half gallons donated.

Deammie had a life-long love of music, reading and crafting. She was a voracious reader who delighted in finding new releases by favorite authors. Her handiwork in knitting, sewing and cross stitch was highly admired. Deammie also loved to find new items for her extensive Betty Boop collection.
