Deanna’s daughter Amy has been outspoken about her grief for her grandmother. She even criticized her cousins for using emojis in posts about Mary’s death. “Sometimes it's ok to use emojis and then there are other times when. You. Just. Don't. ???,” she wrote on Twitter.

Amy has credited both her mom and Mary to raising her growing up. In her tribute to her grandmother on Instagram, she wrote, “She helped raise me, we did everything together. We've been on countless trips, we had lunch together 3 times a week, and if we weren't together we were either texting or calling each other.”
