Deane Richards

She was a wanderer, a traveler, a woman, an individual. She was a daughter, a sister, a wife, an aunt, a friend to some and a mystery to others. She was a creative spirit, restless and, as of August 18, 2018, no longer of this world.

Nancy Bernadine Kivlighan Richards, known as “Deane” for much of her life, was born on October 7, 1953. She was raised by parents Michael E. Kivlighan and Kathryn J. Lineweaver Kivlighan.

Deane is survived by her sister, Kathryn K. Mitchell (Ken), nieces, great nieces and nephew, many cousins, and extended family and friends in Staunton, Richmond, surrounding central and southwest VA areas, and in the state of Connecticut.

A special thanks to the caregivers at Lewis-Gale Hospital, Scott Hill Retirement Community and the Roanoke Rescue Mission
