Obituary


Deandra (DeeDee) Charisse Fegurgur, born October 6th, 1992, died in a car accident Sunday, November 27, 2016. Deandra attended Emerald Ridge High School and was employed by United Building Services.

As all would agree, Deandra was a one-of-a kind individual, beginning with her name, created by her mother, a blend between Deidra and Cassandra with her middle name given after her beloved aunt, Charisse. A unique name for a unique girl. Nothing about her was common or ordinary. From her sense of style (whatever you might call it), to her in-your-face- sarcastic comments,...

Deandra (DeeDee) Charisse Fegurgur, born October 6th, 1992, died in a car accident Sunday, November 27, 2016. Deandra attended Emerald Ridge High School and was employed by United Building Services.

As all would agree, Deandra was a one-of-a kind individual, beginning with her name, created by her mother, a blend between Deidra and Cassandra with her middle name given after her beloved aunt, Charisse. A unique name for a unique girl. Nothing about her was common or ordinary. From her sense of style (whatever you might call it), to her in-your-face- sarcastic comments, to how she lived her life, she was as authentic as anyone could hope to be-and exercised immense courage to be true to herself.

Deedee loved many things, but what she loved and cherished the most were tatted on her body: True North Compass, representing her love for Alaska and all its beauty; a tulip and lily flower representing her relationship with her mom and dad; and the Tree of Life with a Celtic clover at the base, representing her love for nature and her Irish heritage and connection to her daddy.

DeeDee loved her family and friends and the time they spent together. Holidays, any day, it didn't matter. It didn't even matter if she was pissed at them; she still wanted to be with them. She loved her time and talks with Grandpa Fegurgur at Trapper Sushi. Spending time on the water (not in it) was another favorite. Her father dubbed her "The Tubing Queen" because she ruled the tube, riding it like a bull as fast as she could. DeeDee loved her mom and was the biggest momma's girl. As a small girl, her mom used to call her Velcro because she couldn't move or go anywhere without DeeDee clinging to her. As she grew up, she stayed closely connected to her mom, who grounded and rooted her with unconditional love.

Some of DeeDee's favorite things to do were to spend time with Courtney and the Squad at Moses Lake on holiday weekends where they camped, rode quads, and hung out by the fire. Spending time with her friends at bon fires and The Y were more of her favorites. Alaska, her true north, was her greatest adventure with Grandpa Pascua, where he continually fed her her favorite foods. DeeDee loved stealing clothes from her family and friends, and then denying it while she was wearing them. ? DeeDee breathed all things camo: clothes, duct tape, flashlights, camping chair, sleeping bag, blankets, lanyard.

DeeDee's first claim-to-fame was working with Northwest Youth Corp at 15 years old. She maintained trails in remote areas, backpacking in everything needed. The last area she worked on, all the supplies were muled-in, due to the difficulty of accessing it. She endured all the elements of weather, cold temperatures and extremely wet conditions as well as encounters with wild animals, limited rations, and no electronic communication. Her experience with Northwest Youth Corp helped her define her personality and develop courage and strength for future challenges. Her next achievement was being the only female high-rise window cleaner in Seattle. Heights didn't bother her and neither did telling her boss off when he wanted to charge her interest on a paycheck advance her first day of work. Everyone knows you never had to guess what she was thinking because she'd just say it. Her boss experienced that first hand.

DeeDee's last day couldn't have been more perfect. She spent the day decorating for Christmas with her Mom, Dad and Payton. Then they all went out to Trapper's for sushi, and stopped by Lowe's, the only store she enjoyed shopping at. When they came home, they shared a glass of champagne, to usher in the Christmas season.

DeeDee was famous for saying, "Dude, get off my nuts!" or simply turning her phone off if she was annoyed. If she didn't want to go somewhere, she would say, "I'm on my way" and then never show. If she had enough of a party or football game, she'd simply disappear, no goodbye, nothing. In typical Dee fashion, she left us last Sunday without saying goodbye.

She is preceded in death by her parents Timothy & Christine Fegurgur, her siblings, Austin Seay and Brennan Fegurger, beloved nephew, Payton Fegurgur. Grandma Rita Garrett, Grandpa Joquin Fegurgur and many loving relatives. Memorial Service to be held at Tacoma Sportsmen Club, Friday, December 2th at 5pm. Donations are being accepted at the service as well as GoFundMe.com for Deandra Fegurgur Funeral Fund.
