Deanna Lathrop passed away peacefully early Sunday morning, August 2, 2020 at the age of 79. Deanna was born in Monette Missouri on August 8, 1940. Deanna is preceded in death by her mom and dad; William Vincent and Edith Vincent as well as her brother, Bill Vincent. Deanna is survived by her husband of 61 years, Dee Wayne Lathrop, her daughter; Debbie Polley, Son; Todd Lathrop and his wife Melissa, 4 grandchildren; Bret Polley and wife Candace, Kelsey Lathrop, Grant Lathrop, Garret Buie, Sisters; Mary Holland and husband Steve, Janet Moore, Sister in Law; Sue Vincent, and many nieces and nephews.
Family and friends will remember Deanna for her love of camping with “the group”, Jeep trailing in the mountains, canoeing, and all the activities Branson Missouri had to offer. Deanna got the most enjoyment from the 15 years that her and Wayne would winter in Orlando Florida and work for Disney World. Most would say Deanna spent everything they made on Disney memorabilia. All you need to do is visit her home to see that is true.
Services will be held at Langsford Funeral Home on Saturday, August 15, 2020. Visitation from 9:30 AM to 10:30 AM, Memorial Service will begin at 10:30 preceded by Burial Services at the Lee’s Summit Cemetery.

We are very sorry for your loss. Glad you got to spend so many years just being together and doing the things you both loved to do. Hope your happy memories will be a comfort to you once the pain of losing your partner of 61 years ease a bit.
We were planning to attend the visitation and service next Saturday, but our daughter reminded us today that our granddaughter’s celebration is the same day, and we are expected to be there. Hope to see you soon.
Perry (and Mary)
I find it very difficult to express my feelings of lose of my friend. I loved her dearly over the 56 years we knew each other. We had lots of interesting and fun times with each other. We supported each other in good times and some bad. We went from her purple skin from scarlet tena to my hacking and coughing from bronchites. From baby sitting Debbie and Todd to trading off looking after each others kids, to card games and board games and birthday parties,PTA bowling (I was bad at and the handy cap) to camping, jeep trailing in Colorado, camping and investing in Treasure Lake and this went on for years. Dee is my dearest friend, the first one I made when I moved to Lees Summit. She will forever be a part of my memories and my heart. I know and love her family and my heart breaks for your loss. She will always have a special place in my heart. God bless you Wayne, Debbie, Bret,Candice, Todd. Melissa and all the Family.
Pat and Wayne too
So sorry for your loss, sending prayers and my deepest sympathy to all. Dee was a very caring, loving and special lady. We all enjoyed working with her at Cast Connection, Lake Buena Vista, Fl.
Always hate losing another great classmate. Wanted her family to know our thoughts and prayers are with you.
