    Deanna Webb Mills, 81, passed away at home peacefully on April 4, 2024. She was born in Heber City, on September 17, 1942. She is the oldest daughter of Leonal C. and Violet Duane Hardman Webb. Deanna has eleven siblings and learned early the importance of family. Deanna attended elementary and high school in Tabiona and was a cheerleader for the Tabiona Tigers. Growing up in a large family made it important to be self-reliant and the entire family worked hard to have a comfortable life. Throughout her youth she had many friends and was no stranger to a little mischief. She even made a few friends with law enforcement in her younger years. 
    After high school, Deanna moved to the Wasatch Front to find work and lived for a time with her cousin Richard and his wife Janet Rhoades. She moved home for the winter and returned the next summer to the Wasatch Front. This time she was introduced to Len Mills. They began dating in 1961 and were married on August 19, 1961, later sealed in the St. George Temple on April 13, 1963. Len and Deanna have five sons. Throughout their married life, Len and Deanna focused all their efforts to help their kids learn self-discipline and hard work. Deanna was outnumbered being the only woman in the home, but she never once compromised her manners to fit a houseful of rowdy boys. She later admitted that she’s grateful she had all boys because she couldn’t handle the drama with girls. Each boy loved and respected their mom and looked forward to one day finding someone that could match the high bar that she set.
    Deanna always had a strong moral compass and was a student of the gospel of Jesus Christ. She surrounded herself with endless books that solidified her ability to teach and share with others. She served in many callings and leadership positions within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There was none more important and fulfilling than teaching about the Savior, Jesus Christ. 
    Deanna had great organizational skills and was gifted with numbers. She was offered a job at the Junction Texaco to handle the books. She helped clean up many years of accounting that needed some tender loving care. Following her time there, Deanna took a job working at Stan’s Merc in Circleville. She helped the store evolve and make some key updates. Following her time there, she worked for several years at State Bank. She also worked at Arby’s in Richfield where she always put employees first. She then returned to State Bank and later retired from Zions Bank. She never shied away from working hard and making a difference wherever she was employed. 
    Following her retirement, Len and Deanna served a full-time mission in St. George where they made many great friends and enjoyed serving as missionaries. Throughout her life and into retirement, Deanna enjoyed living a balanced life as a homemaker. Often with short notice, many relatives would descend on the home front. With seemingly little effort, Deanna would prepare a lunch that everyone would later devour while enjoying the southern Utah surroundings. While everyone was enjoying the outdoors, Deanna would typically be at home prepping a dinner that was fit for royalty. Len would often make a point to count how many times Deanna would jump up during dinner to get something for someone. Jumping to help others is a snapshot of Deanna’s life. She was always serving. Always giving more than she would take. Always cheering up the weary and always trying to lift someone’s burden. 
    Deanna is survived by her husband, Len Mills; her five sons: Troy (Sandy), Elsinore; Dan (Debbie), West Valley City; Randy (Lori), Vernal; Justin (Marisa) Vernal; Brandon (Michele), Pleasant Grove. Deanna has 22 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. Her siblings: Lloyd Webb, Evelyn Coleman, Leah Webb, Kirk Webb, Lance Webb, Scott Webb, Lane Webb.
    She was preceded in death by her parents; grandson, Bryan Mills; siblings: Dale Webb, Dean Webb (Deanna’s twin), Clyde Webb, Wilma Winn.
    The family would like to express their love and appreciation to everyone that has helped in any way.
