Carole Elizabeth Galka Dean, 75, of Burns, Oregon, unexpectedly passed on to be with our Lord Jesus Christ, Saturday, August 30th, at 11:10 AM.
Carole was born in Emmett, Idaho; she was married to Daniel Dean, of Harney County, where they spent the last 2 years and 8 months together.  Carole grew up in Burns, Oregon and first met Daniel in high school.  Family movement and marriage took Carole and Daniel on separate paths until 2012, when they found their way back to each other and were married.  Their short time together was marked with joy, happiness, and a deep love which was evident to all.
Carole was married to Henry Floyd Galka on September 1, 1958.  Together, they have seven children, 21 grandchildren, and 17 great-grandchildren, one of which they raised as her own, Devyn Mercedes Guerrero.  Carole’s avid love for the written word was passed on to her children and their children; we will deeply miss her read-alouds which brought us together as a family.  A propensity toward the creative could be seen in her crocheting of blankets and necklaces.  While primarily a homemaker, Carole worked in many different capacities; to include, a nurse’s assistant and assistant to her first husband in all secretarial type work for their engineering company.  
Carole’s heart of compassion for her fellow man could be seen in her continuous outpouring of love and help to family, friends, and even complete strangers.  She was a wonderful mother who thought of her children first, and would go without in order to provide for their needs and even wants.  She is loved beyond measure and will be missed beyond comprehension.
Carole was preceded in death by her father, Ralph Raymond Vanderdasson, her brother Ronald Wayde Vanderdasson, her first husband Henry Floyd Galka, and her granddaughter Vanessa Marie Green.  She is survived by her mother Kathryn Marie Hochhalter; her siblings Marlene Marie Lobato, James Raymond Vanderdasson, and Judith Kathryn Spriggel; her children, Dinah Lynn White, Joni Beth Kutz, Lisa Anne Atkins-Croft, Henry Thomas Galka, Stephen Vincent Galka, Rebekah Lee O’ Hare, and Nichole Kathryn Hall; twenty of her grandchildren and her 17 great-grandchildren.
Carole has been laid to rest in the high desert country of Harney County, at Fort Harney Cemetery; she has come home.
