Haverhill — Deanna A. (Parker) Hemingway, 50, of Haverhill, died on Thursday, September 19, 2013, at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Boston, after a lengthy illness.
Deanna was born in Farmington, Maine. She was the daughter of Hollis N. and Donna B. (Bump) Parker. Educated in Maine, she was a graduate of Mt. Abram High School in Salem, Maine, Class of 1981.
Ms. Hemingway was employed as a waitress for the Denny’s restaurant chain for over 20 years, serving customers at the South Lawrence location, and in Alaska, while living there. Known to have a heart of gold, her profession was also her calling: she enjoyed serving others. She loved shopping, and in her quiet time, she was an avid reader. Deanna loved animals and cherished her cat “Freshy.”
She leaves her partner of 10 years, Gary W. Malone of Haverhill; Gary’s twin boys, Cody and Tristen Winslow; her mother, Donna Parker; a sister, Donna Corcoran and her husband, Shaun, all of Bradford; a brother, Dale Z. Parker and his wife, Susan, of Berwick, Maine; two nieces, Heather and Samantha Parker; and aunts, uncles and cousins, all of whom will miss her dearly.
