It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our daughter, Deanna Alexandra Jean Kidd on Thursday July 30, 2020 at the age of 29 years.
The definition of family is the people you love and who love you back, the people you feel safe around, and the people you can count on to be there when you need them.
Deanna, our “Princess Dee” was a beautiful part of our family that included her Mom and Dad; Lori & Harold Reid of Chatham, Evany Reid and her blended family, especially the “fab five” that included Kassidy Reid, Flo Baylis and Lloyd Baylis. She will be missed by her Grandparents Sandra & Kinnon Ferguson, her “Fairy Godmother and Aunt” Kim Ferguson and her “Aunt Alfie” Blanche Rabideau. She will also be missed by many more aunts, uncles and cousins and by her Belleville family Christine Kidd, Gabrielle Mugridge, Logan Mounteny and other extended family members.
She was predeceased by her grandparents Fred & Elda Reid.
Deanna spent her childhood days playing with her sisters, brothers and cousins in the fields and barns of the family farm in Leamington. In 2009 she graduated from Cardinal Carter High School in Leamington before moving with her family to Chatham eight years ago. She loved animals, especially cats and was often teased by her family that only Deanna could get a cat to wear doll clothes and ride in her stroller.
Deanna was many things to many people but to one person, she was the world. Her greatest gift in life was a bond that she shared with Evany…her “baby girl and bestest friend”. She will be missed.
Cremation has taken place and Deanna’s family will remember her privately. If you should want to do something in remembrance of Deanna, give your children an extra hug tonight before they go to bed and say “I love you” one more time.
