Deanna Liebl (Nov. 12, 1954 – Nov. 19, 2016)
Our friend Deanna Liebl passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, November 19, 2016, at her home in Carbondale. Born on November 12, 1954, in Larned, Kansas, Deanna moved to Carbondale in 2002 to launch the Roaring Fork Valley’s “Deanna Liebl Signature Wedding Cakes” — a custom wedding cake business she started in Wichita, Kansas.
Always an artist, Deanna began her career as an interior designer and then attended the Culinary Institute of America and Peter Kump’s New York Cooking School. Her latest venture found her teaming with her friend Amy Tarrant to start Too Haute Cowgirls, a gourmet popcorn company, where Deanna was in charge of recipe R&D and specialty chocolate was her passion.
She is survived by her dear husband Bob, three sisters, and extended family. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your favorite animal rescue facility.
