Obituary of Dean R. Baney
Dean R. Baney – Mamie’s Blue-Eyed Doll: Born February 11, 1926, in Ashland, Ohio, to Howard and Viola Baney, and went home to be with his Savior February 21, 2023, at the age of 97. He is predeceased by his parents, younger brother Walter and sister Kathleen, and his grandson, Jonathan (and wife Jessica). He is survived by his loving and faithful wife of 71 years, Mamie Baney, and their three children, Debra, Michael, and Bruce. His children blessed him with five grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren. Debra’s child: Jonathan (and wife Jessica) and their children, Arden, William, and Reed; children of Michael (and wife Terry): Nichole (and husband Michael Lang) and their children, Lexus, Jaden, Nevaeh, Maleah, Evangeline; and Brasta (and husband Christopher Lialios) and their children: Alexander, Braden, Isaac, Jace, Elysia, and children of Bruce (and wife Wendy): Seth and Caleb. Dean also has an adopted grandson and granddaughter, Patrick and Amy Stites (who have adopted Jonathan’s children) and two adopted great-grandchildren (their children): Wesley and Caroline. Dean and Mamie also took in a missionary’s son, Ethan, and parented him through high school. Ethan was like a brother to Bruce. Ethan went back to the mission field with his parents after school. Dean served the Lord in churches in Texas, Ohio, and Arkansas, and went on mission trips to South America and Russia, and when he retired told people about Jesus as he, Mamie and his sister Kathleen traveled America in their fifth-wheel mobile home. He recently served the Lord through a video ministry at Southside Baptist Church here in Gallatin, Tennessee, reading Bible scripture on different topics over social media to people all over the world. A memorial service will be held at Southside Baptist Church on South Water Street on Saturday, March 4, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. It will also be live streamed as Dean R. Baney Memorial Service at https://youtu.be/LmGNw0bzpl0. People will be able to watch it live as the service happens, and it will stay on You Tube to be viewed at any time after the service. It will be presided over by Jaden Allen, one of the pastors who Dean took under his wing, prayed for while Jaden was at college, and worked with in his video ministry at Southside. Dean and Mamie have many friends in Ohio, Arkansas, Texas, and Tennessee (and wherever they traveled preaching God’s Word). In lieu of flowers, please give to a missionary you know and love.
