Deirdre Yvette (Woodruff) Vinson

April 2, 1965 ~ March 19, 2022 (age 56)


Deirdre was born April 2, 1965, in Amarillo TX to Lillie B. Combs and Leonard Woodruff. She was a devoted wife, mother, and all-around family-oriented person. She spent her life working hard to provide for her family. Every chance she got, she helped and gave to others. She was a woman of faith and a protector to everyone she knew. In her free time, she loved to travel, and spend time with family. She found peace in doing puzzles.

She is preceded in death by her mother, Lillie B. Combs and sister, Francine Barnes.

Deirdre is survived by her husband, Edrick Vinson of Amarillo; sons, Darryl Ingram, Eric Woodruff, Derrick Vinson all of Amarillo; brothers, Tommy Combs of Phoenix, Elmo Oliver of Amarillo, Albert Oliver of Lubbock, Michael McQueen of Amarillo; sisters, Sherry Woodruff of Gainesville, Jeannie Moore of Amarillo; and twelve (12) grandchildren.

She was a blessing to every single person she knew, and a fighter until the very end.
