LAZOVICH, DEANNA  
DEANNA LAZOVICH Deanna Lazovich passed away July 17, 2015, after a brave fight against an incurable form of lung disease. She never wanted to be remembered on the date she died but instead to be remembered for the way she lived her life. She was a mom, a grandmother, a sister, an aunt and a great friend to many. Deanna was born in Arkansas and later moved to Hawthorne. After high school, she moved to Reno and worked at First Interstate Bank, which later became Wells Fargo, where she continued for almost 40 years. Once retired, Deanna began her second career working for Congressman Jim Gibbons through his governorship and then for Assemblyman John Ellison. What followed was what she considered the best job of all, being a full-time grandmother to her "grands," Jack and Carys. Deanna loved to travel the world, but was always ready to return home to her favorite place, Nevada. She enjoyed everything about the state, even proudly wearing a necklace of its shape. Deanna loved to bake cookies at Christmas, read hardback books and embraced learning new things. Happy, kind, fair, selfless, honest, considerate and most of all loving to her daughter and grandchildren, Deanna lived her life without regret and will be missed by many. No services are scheduled In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to UCLA Pulmonary Hypertension Program, Attn: Dr. Rajan Saggar, 200 Medical Plaza, Suite 365 B, Los Angeles, CA 99095. Checks should be payable to UC Regents with the memo line to read, "For the research efforts of Dr. Rajan Saggar at UCLA."
