DeAnne Louise Lewis Harland

DeAnne Louise Lewis Harland, 89, of Cayucos, passed away on April 18, 2019.  DeAnne was raised in Fowler, Colo., and earned a BA in Education from the University of Colorado, Boulder. She was married to William Harland for 46 years, they had three children, and lived in San Luis Obispo, Paso Robles, Phoenix and Cayucos.

DeAnne was a school teacher, managed rental properties, was a homemaker, and loving mother always. She lived a majority of her years in Cayucos where she cared for her Mother (late Cayucos resident Ruth Lewis), was active in Red Hat Ladies, served on Cayucos Citizens Advisory Council, attended Cayucos Community Church, and had many friends.

Her passions were socializing, art, dancing (at the Madonna Inn), singing in choirs, and playing the piano and organ. DeAnne had a tremendous sense of humor and smiled at everyone she met. She was known to break into spontaneous dancing anytime and place the music inspired her.

DeAnne is survived by her three children, Janise (Bill) Dickerson, Craig (Debra) Harland, and Susie Harland (partner Greg DeFatta); four grandchildren: Matt Nicholas, Paul, David, and Chandy Harland; and her sister Carolyn (Gary) Hill.
