The Majesty of Marriage –
August 26, 2020 – Brett Favre is marred to Deanna Favre. Deanna is an author. She’s written two books: “Don’t Bet Against Me” and “The Cure for the Chronic Life: Overcoming the Hopelessness That Holds You Back” (co-written with Shane Stanford). The first was written about her battle with breast cancer. They both grew up in a tiny town called Kiln, Mississippi, and began dating at Kiln Hancock North Central High School. Deanna graduated in 1986 and played basketball on scholarship at a nearby community college. Brett finished up high school a year later, and Deanna transferred to the University of Southern Mississippi to be with him. In 1996, while Brett was an established quarterback in the NFL, Deanna Tynes took her partner’s last name and the two tied the knot. Deanna has two siblings. Her brother, Casey, died in 2004 following a tragic ATV accident in Hattiesburg.
