Carlene Ruth Westebbe took her final breath at 4:30 am, November 8, 2017, with her family by her side. She wrestled with cancer for 18 long months, and showed us the way. She lived each day fully; funny, strong, loving and true - a mother and elder daughter of the Deel clan. She is survived by her children, Rayna, C'aira, Mark II, Mathew and John; grandson, Todd; husband, Mark and 'adopted' son, Josh; sisters, Wanda and Dianne; brothers, Ray, Bill, Barry and Scott of Northern Virginia; Aunt Laurie and her children of Southwest Virginia- Lee, Curtis, Debbie and Barb; a host of aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews and in-laws. She was preceded in death by her parents, William and Marie Deel; her brother, Ronnie Deel and her cousins, Jane and Mike. A light has gone from our eyes, but continues to burn in our hearts. We are grateful for the many prayers and kindnesses we have received and will honor her request to remember her personally and privately. There are no services planned.
