Mrs. Deese was born August 10, 1967, in Monroe, NC, a daughter of Rick and Bonnie Owens Hendrix.

She will be fondly remembered as a wonderful daughter, wife, mother, and best friend who was loved and treasured by many.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 30 years, Randel Lee “Cotton” Deese; loving cousin, Shirley Johnson; and her grandparents, Mr. & Mrs. P.A. Hendrix, and Mr. & Mrs. Robert Owens.
Survivors include her children whom she was very proud of, Toby Deese of Pageland, SC, and Courtney (Greg) Laughlin of Myrtle Beach, SC; special granddaughter, Alia Laughlin; beloved parents, Rick and Bonnie Hendrix; brother, Joey (Pat) Hendrix; mother-in-law, Betty Wilbanks, all of Pageland, SC; and her beloved pet, “Sandi”.
The family would like to thank the staff of Regency SouthernCare Hospice (formerly Hospice of Chesterfield County) for the love and care shown to Tracy and her family during this time.
