Catherine Lynn Deal

November 17, 1955 — October 3, 2022

Catherine Lynn Deal, 66, passed away on Monday, October 3, 2022 at St. Joseph’s Hospital.

Lynn was an outgoing, friendly person who never met a stranger. She enjoyed going to the beach, singing, dancing, and karaoke. Her true passion though, was being with and taking care of her family and friends. She was a caregiver to her Uncle Randy for the last 12 years. Her grandson, Aaron, was her pride and joy. In a world that can be dark, Lynn provided light. She will be deeply missed and forever loved.

She was preceded in death by her son, Kenneth Ferguson, Jr.; parents, Simon and Catherine Deal; and her sister, Diane Smith.

Lynn is survived by her daughter, Celena Thornton; grandson, Aaron Thornton; brother and sister-in-law, Timmy and Melissa Deal; brother-in-law, Jimmy Smith; two uncles, Randy and Harold; special friends, Stephanie Graham, Lynne Lane, Jackie Warren, Courtney, Kimmie, Sally, and Elke; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

The family wishes to thank the doctors and staff at St. Joseph’s Hospital for their care and compassion. 

Memorial services will begin at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 8, 2022 at Carter Funeral Home Bryan Chapel. Lynn’s family will receive friends for one hour prior to the service.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to St. Joseph’s/Candler Foundations, Heart & Lung Building, 5356 Reynolds Street, Suite 400, Savannah, GA 31405.
