She graduated from Whitcomb (Bethel) HS and then from Castleton in 1973 . During college, her family moved to South Royalton, for a few years,  before returning to Bethel. Later, after moving to Rochester, she began working for the Supervisory Union in 1987 when a friend suggested she come over from Dandelion Daycare,  and work for Title I.

At this point, Deedy continued for a few years in SPED in Rochester, then Stockbridge,  Bethel and most recently arriving at SRHS and SR Elementary in the fall of 2021 where she is continuing as a paraprofessional.
