Annabel Deaton, 88, a resident of Brookdale Oak Park, died on Feb. 21, 2017. Born on Nov. 22, 1928, she was extremely proud to be the wife of a 25-year Marine Corps veteran and relished the travel and unique experiences that life brought. She was also proud of her service as an executive assistant at Akron City Hospital (now Summa Health) and as secretary to the Episcopal Bishop of Okinawa. 

Annabel Deaton is survived by her children, Mark and Dawn (Fogle); and her grandchildren, Patrick and Hannah (Miller). She was preceded in death by her husband of 65 years, Marvin Dale Deaton. 

Visitation and services were held on Feb. 25 at Oak Park's Drechsler, Brown & Williams Funeral Home, followed by private interment. 

The family wishes to thank the staffs of both Brookdale Oak Park and Seasons Hospice for their care and compassion, and they appreciate memorials to PING (Providing Instruments for the Next Generation) in Oak Park and to the Marine Corps Toys for Tots.
