Reba Dean Deal made her peaceful transition at 3:10 pm MST, 3/7/2018. Her son, John Brown and daughter, Jana Brown together with a close friend Gerald Dubiel, were at her side.
Born February 4, 1940 in Nashville, Tennessee. Attended Hume-Fogg Technical and Vocational High School. Married June 6, 1959 and moved to Oxford, OH home of Miami University. Raised two God-loving, creative, & successful children - John Roland and Jana Glyn Brown. Have two wonderful grand girls, Lauren Alexandra Brown and Kristina Louise (Brown) Jordan- both high souls and Deborah Anne Brown. Reba has 8 siblings, l sister, 2 brothers, 2 step sisters, 1 step brother and 2 half-brothers.
She Attended Miami University of Ohio while raising children and acquired two years of higher formal education. Did spiritual search for truth and the right path for many years. Found the Ascended Masters Teachings about 1990. Had been raised in Christian fundamentalist church. In her early 30s she began to explore other churches. A variety of main stream paths -Methodist, Presbyterian, and Lutheran. Then looked at more alternative ones -- Christian Science, Unitarian Universalist, Unity and finally settled at CUT (Church Universal & Triumphant) Headquartered in Montana.
She loved to sing at an early age and was in the Unity choir for 8 years. She also conducted the children's choir for two years and led some workshops in Jain chants. For 8 years she did clowning, “REBO the Clown” as an avocation (primarily face painting) at large and small events, which was more of a part time hobby to give to others.
Attended many Mind, Body and Spirit fairs and also worked on psychological issues since early 30s. Was in a growth group for 10 years which was headed by a Transactional Analysis (TA) Consultants which provided guidance and support needed to help with personal growth.
In mid-late 1970s she helped to get new credit laws and rape laws passed in Ohio to aid women. And helped pass legislation for the ERA (Equal rights amendment) & Title 9. She was also a peer rape victim counselor-primarily helping to educate the public (via health care professionals, police officers, women's groups, student groups, hot lines, treatment centers, etc.) about the truth of this problem.
After moving to Montana in 2005, she published for 3 years a directory of KOF (Keepers of the Flame) in North Glastonbury MT and was VP on the NGTC Board of Trustees and coordinated a fundraiser "The Paradise Country Fair", which many thought to be good PR with the valley. She also coordinated the "The Golden Auction" (a fundraiser event) held at CUT's successful 50th Anniversary Celebration. Both of these projects were labors of love which she felt blessed to be able to coordinate. In the early 90s she also sold books for a season on the road for CUT.
Reba worked in a great many administrative positions - both temporary and permanent - and got to see how small, medium and two Fortune 500 companies operate. For 6 years she worked as a Technical Writer for a computer software company and was a Technical Writer Consultant for one year. For two years each she had home-based businesses including professional Writing (speeches, resumes, newsletters, etc.), Art Sales (fine art and crafts with some handmade designer art jewelry sold through Saks Fifth Avenue) and natural skin care product sales (Arbonne from Switzerland).
She felt blessed to have found CUT and to have been called to share in this spiritual work for the Ascended Masters in this Age and to be working with so many stalwart, dedicated and committed Sons and Daughters of God. She hopes that all continue to support the work of this Church for the saving of souls and for our Mother Earth.
Reba lived life to the fullest with a great love for God, Family, and Country. In addition to her spiritual work, she enjoyed Shiatsu, hiking, and spending time with her dear friend Gerald Dubiel.
