Desserree Pierce Osborne, 85, of Johnson City, went home to be with her Lord on Wednesday, November 25, 2020, from her residence. Desserree was born on August 2, 1935 and was the daughter of the late Henry Joseph Pierce and Mamie Nave Pierce.
In addition to her parents, Desserree was preceded in death by her loving husband, Clifford Frank Osborne, and three of her sisters, Novella Ferguson, Ellen Pierce and Grace Rossiter.
Desserree was a graduate of Science Hill High School and later went on to receive her Bachelors of Science Degree from East Tennessee State University. She enjoyed spending her time cooking, traveling, decorating her home for the different holidays but most of all she enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. Desserree was a faithful member of Sinking Creek Baptist Church.
