Dr. DeAnn Clare Bohm, née Stumpf, was a woman who lived life to the fullest and touched the hearts of many.

Born November 12, 1954 in Red Bud, Illinois, she was awarded both Miss Congeniality and Missouri County Fair Queen.

DeAnn traveled the the world, and after living in Germany, she moved around the Eastern United States until she made her home in Satellite Beach, Florida. She enjoyed spending time at the beach and boogie boarding.

As a professor of mathematics at Eastern Florida State University, she inspired her students and colleagues. But her most important job was Nana to Chase, 7, and Lucas, 3, Neyens, born to her daughter Nicole and son-in-law Ron Neyens, who have adopted her Cocker Spaniel, Jackson.

After a brief battle with cancer, she died August 11, 2017 in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, at her daughter’s home. She will be missed dearly by her many friends and family, including her sister Dori.

DeAnn was preceded in death by her son, Stefan Mathias Bohm, parents Clarence and Eva (Huch) Stumpf, and Weimaraner Kahlua, whose spirits she will rejoin in eternal peace.

No services are planned, but all who loved DeAnn and cherished her friendship are invited to honor her legacy in lieu of sending flowers by donating to the Charleston Animal Society (CLICK HERE) and select Tribute Gift; or to the Holling’s Cancer Center (CLICK HERE) and select head and neck cancer, where she received excellent care from Dr. Day’s team.
