Janet Dedon

Surrounded by family, Janet B. Dedon went to be with the Lord on March 13, 2020, at the age of 81. Raised in Bogalusa, she graduated from Bogalusa High School and went on to earn a degree in nursing, a career she loved for 32 years.

She was preceded in death by parents, Harold and Lois Buras; son, Clay Ard; and husband, Robert (Bobby) Dedon.

She is survived by four children and their spouses, Anthony (Chris) and Connie Fiorenza, Toni and Wayne McKinney, Steve and Sara Easterling, and Harold (Brad) and Roxanne Easterling; grandchildren, Jessica and Michael Copelen, Kayla Fiorenza, Timothy Holman, Brooklyn Easterling, Reese Easterling, D’shawna Burgess, E.J. Burgess, Bradley Easterling, Kristopher Easterling and Autumn Easterling; and siblings, Rick Buras and Jack Buras. She was blessed with one great-grandchild on the way. And she leaves behind her best friends Ann Carlton and Leatrice Auldman, of many years.

Janet was a devout Christian, giving her time and her energy to her church, Ridge Memorial Baptist Church. She loved to travel, being a resident of multiple cities including Bogalusa, Robert, Zachary, Denham Springs and Pearl River; Tylertown and Dexter, Miss.; and Broadus, Mont. She had a lively personality and made friends wherever she went. She will be greatly missed by all of her family and friends.
