     Deana Renee Dockery, age 58, of Lamar, died Friday, August 7, 2015 from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident north of Lusk, Wyoming.

     Deana was born January 21, 1957, in Lamar to Lee and Julia (Crosson) Dockery.  After graduating from Lamar High School in 1976, she earned a certificate in cosmetology and had worked as a hairdresser for nearly 40 years.  She will be missed by her many clients at the Mane Station, not only for her expertise in cosmetology, but also her bubbly personality and cheerful disposition.  In addition to making a comfortable and loving home for Dennis Dighero, her partner of more than 20 years, Deana was always ready for an adventure, whether it be camping, skiing, and fishing at Stockton Lake, or riding the Harley with Dennis, anywhere, anytime.

     Survivors include her father, Lee Dockery, Lamar; a brother, Terry (Crystal) Dockery, Carthage; a nephew, Aaron (Nancy) Dockery; a niece, Segren Cagle; great-nieces Shelby, Katelyn and Kelly Dockery; her Dighero family; and a host of close friends.

     A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday, August 12th at Lamar United Methodist Church.  The family will receive friends from noon until service time on Wednesday at the church. 

     A private family committal service will be held at a later date at St. James Cemetery north of Milford, Missouri.

     Memorial contributions are suggested to St. James Cemetery in care of Daniel Funeral Home.

Deana has been my dear friend and hairdresser for many years, and she's seemed like another sister to me as well. She and Dennis were two of our closest friends, and we'd often stop by their Hagny home on the way to ours behind the lake. Deana was so kind, supportive, and very trusting as my friend, and she definitely reached out to many in her lifetime. She will be greatly missed by Brad & me, as will Dennis. (Love you so much, Deana, and we will meet again in Paradise so be ready to ride.)

Deana use to do my hair when I was in high school at Lamar in the early 80's. Deana was still my mother's, Helen Cole's, hairdresser, and I know how much my mom enjoyed having her hair done routinely and visiting with Deana. I am so very sorry for Deana's family and friend's sudden loss.
With deepest sympathies,
Jill (Cole) Adams

I introduced myself to Deana at the pool in Lamar when I was just 12 years old. A long standing friendship ensued. Over the past 36 years I have valued her as my liaison to the town in which I grew up. My condolences to her family, especially her father. She will be missed.

Sorry to hear about the loss of our brother and sister, Dennis & Deana. Prayers go out to both families, and just know they will be in our hearts forever. R.I.P. Deana & Dennis.

So heartbroken to hear of this tragic loss of you and Dennis. Missing you so much already. I already know I 'll never have another hairdresser and good friend that you have been to me over the last almost forty years. I loved bringing you treats we could eat together as you worked miracles with the hair I don't have anymore . I'm content with the fact that you and Dennis were together doing one of the past times you loved with your good friends---- only wish it would have been a lot of years later. Praying your family will have peace, I know they will miss all the yummy family dinners you and Dennis hosted.

Our sincere sympathies go out to all of Deana's family and friends. We were lucky to meet and know Deana on several occasions through Kent and Debbie Harris.
What a neat person! She will be missed! We are so glad we had a chance to know her.

My relationship with Deana started by my noticing how nice my sister-in-la's hair looked. When I found out Deana did it I knew where I wanted t go. That was the beginning of a friendship. Not only did she do my hair, most of my appointments started with, I will swing by and pick you up text. From my home out to sonic for a huge cherry coke, then to the shop. Deana was a very special sweet lady, a confident and friend. I will miss her greatly my prayers are for peace and comfort for her family and many friends who will miss her. Lamar suffered a great loss.
