Jena Deshay, 63, of Dale, TX, passed away on January 13, 2023, after a lengthy battle with cancer.
Jena entered this world on October 18, 1959, the fourth of eight children born to Charles and Bobbie Deshay in Austin, TX. She attended Johnston High School and worked at Travis State School for many years. Jena loved working with all people both young and old. Throughout the years her service record shows her passion for genuinely wanting to help others. She joined the church at an early age, accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior, and served God faithfully until her failing health prevented her from doing so. When Jena had her children DaShabre Deshay and son Michael Deshay, she decided to dedicate her life to being a caring and wonderful mother. Jena excelled at propping up and bridging together members of her family. She supported them through the many passions and difficulties in their lives. Whether caring for children, her parents, or siblings, she made it her mission to improve the lives of others. She also loved cooking, being outdoors, and celebrating life. When she was not filling her home with warmth and kindness, she could be found in her garden, volunteering at the local school or daycare, or baking. She will be missed dearly by many.
