Deidre L. (Morgan) May

December 3, 1964 — November 20, 2022

Hyden, Kentucky

Deidre Morgan May was born December 03, 1964, in Hyden, KY to the union of Helen Garrison Morgan and the late Randy Morgan.

She was married to Marvin May on April 23, 2016, in London, KY.  By occupation, Deidre was currently working as a Medicare Specialist, employed by Maximus. In past years, she worked as a Dental Assistant and in radiology.  Deidre was of the Baptist faith and was affiliated with The Creek Church in London, KY.

Deidre was a free spirit.  She lived life to the fullest and didn’t let anything get in her way.  She was a certified sky diver and had many hobbies and talents.  In her young childhood, she won the Ohio youth contest with her musical abilities as an accordion player. Her hobbies included traveling, snow skiing, hiking, reading, photography and arts & crafts.   She enjoyed trips to the beach and finding seashells.  She was also an avid Steelers and Pinguins Fan.

Above all, her greatest joy came from cooking and spending time with her family and friends.  Deidre was a great cook, and her food was to die for.  She appreciated simple things such as a hot cup of coffee, beautiful sunsets and Native American jewelry.
