Deanie was born on Sept. 7, 1964, in Prentiss, to Grover and Gussie Ruth Ross Hall.  After graduating high school, Deanie would go on to marry the love of her life, Chuck Pruitt.  Together, they would enjoy 36 years of marriage before his passing in 2021.  Over the years, Chuck and Deanie made priceless memories as they traveled out West on their Honda Goldwing Motorcyles, enjoying the sights of places like Colorado and Wyoming.  She and Chuck also loved people and enjoyed making friends. For several years, Deanie and Chuck worked in Texas for the Pipeline and made several lifelong friends.   Many happy hours were spent with the people they loved at NASCAR races at Talledega as well as Tennessee Vols and New Orleans Saints Football games.  Deanie will be missed by all that knew her.

Deanie was preceded in death by her parents, Grover and Gussie Ruth Hall and her beloved husband, Charles O. “Chuck” Pruitt Jr.
