Deanna Kane

Deanna Kane, age 67, of Dubuque, IA, completed her earthly journey on May 5, 2024, at home, while surrounded by her loving family.  To honor Deanna’s life, a private family service will be held at Linwood Cemetery in Dubuque.  The Tri-State Cremation Center is humbly serving Deanna’s family.


Deanna was born on July 13, 1956, in Dubuque, IA, a daughter to Harold and Anna Mae (Halfhill) Thimmesch.  She was blessed with three sons, Terry, Mark and Kevin Kane and sadly discovered an entirely new level of heartache when she lost her son, Mark in 2016.


Deanna spent many years working at the Harmony Care Facility until her eventual retirement in September of 2023.  In her free-time, Deanna loved to go shopping as well as spending time at her craft table working on her latest projects.  She was gifted with a knack for decorating her home and everyone who stopped by to visit always found it to be warm and inviting.


Christmas was undeniably her favorite time of the year, especially when shopping and picking out the perfect gifts for her grandchildren.  Deanna did enjoy venturing out to the casino from time to time to try her luck at the slots, but all who knew and loved Deanna were fully aware that her most precious memories where always to be found in the time she spent with her children and grandchildren.


We will miss Deanna dearly and treasure every wonderful memory that she leaves behind for us.  Thank you, Deanna, for always sharing your love without hesitation and we pray that the Lord grants you eternal peace now after your courageous battle with cancer.


Those left behind to cherish the memory of Deanna include,

her two sons,

Terry (Katie) Kane, Dubuque, IA,

and Kevin Kane, Dubuque, IA;


her seven grandchildren, all of Dubuque, IA;


her father,

Harold Thimmesch, Dubuque, IA;


along with numerous extended family, friends, and neighbors.


Deanna was preceded in death by her mother, Anna Mae Thimmesch; and her son, Mark Kane.


Deanna’s family would like to thank Dr. Hermann, Tony Heiar ARNP, along with the nurses and staff at Hawkeye Care Center and Hospice of Dubuque for all of their professional and loving care of Deanna.
