Miss Callie Alexis Dean, 25 of Blackshear, passed away Saturday evening, June 1, 2019 on St. Simons Island from injuries she received in an automobile accident.
Born in Dublin, GA on May 19, 1994, she had lived in California for four years before returning to Pierce County almost a year ago. Callie was a 2012 graduate of Pierce County High School where she had been a member of the Sound of Silver Marching Band. She was a former waitress for Applebee's in Waycross and had worked as a Barista while living in California. Callie was a very special young lady who possessed the ability to be not just a good friend but a great one. She was always there to help any of her friends when needed. She loved to socialize and be with her friends, loved her dogs, and was getting very good at painting - a hobby she had a natural talent for. She had enjoyed hunting with her granddaddy Thomas as a young child, was a loving niece and cousin, and will be dearly missed by not only her family but by all who knew her. She was a member of Bristol Baptist Church where she had been active with the youth as a teenager.
She was preceded in death by her paternal grandfather, Milton Dean.
