Deane graduated from Rutland High School in 1947. Deane worked for Rutland News until her marriage in 1951 to William (Bill) P. Black. They lived in Norfolk, VA, while he was stationed in the Navy. Then they lived in Stratford, Connecticut, for over twenty years. Deane was employed as a budget analyst for the U.S. Government at Sikorsky Aircraft for almost thirty years.
