Preceded in death by her beloved father, Joe McAlister and mother, Gloria (Marchetti) McAlister. She is survived by a long list of loving family, who were an integral part of her life: Husband, Carl Lassiter; daughter, DeAnna (Michael) Walls; son, Dane Easler; granddaughter, Haven Walls; grandsons, Christopher Bittner and Dennon Easler; sister, Debby (Joe Lohner) Norman, brother, Michael McAlister; nieces, Star Laurence, Tara (Shawn) Duncan , and Heather Norman; nephews, Andy and Vincent McAlister; great nieces, Falynn Norman, Eden Laurence, Glorie Duncan, and Ava Laurence; great nephews, Blake Norman, Tyler McAlister, and Sloan Duncan; great-great nephew, Rhett Etheridge.

She later worked for and retired from CMC in Madison, TN. Derina was a devoted wife, mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, and friend to all who knew her. Her whole life, she gave unselfishly and tirelessly to her entire family.
