Brett and Deanna Favre at ESPY Awards. Who is Deanna Favre?

Last night, ESPY host Justin Timberlake, according the Associated Press, asked Brett Favre: "What have you been up to lately? I haven't seen you anywhere. Just chillin'? Yeah, me too." Timberlake later went over and hugged Aaron Rodgers. The AP reported: "Favre sheepishly looked down with a slight smile on his face as the crowd laughed."
At his side was his wife Deanna (at right). For the past week or so, many of us have been beating up Brett Favre. But who is this women -- Deanna Favre -- who has stood by his side?
Here are a list of facts known about her:
  • Deanna and Brett married July 14, 1996.
  • She admits she almost left Brett. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, she said, "Brett realized if he wanted a life with me and the children, he couldn't drink again. He gave it up completely, and it's been eight years since he's had a drink.'' She said: "I had all his belongings packed and waiting in the courtyard of the house. I'd become so desperate that I'd called a divorce attorney."
  • On October 6, 2004, Deanna's brother Casey was killed in an accident.
  • Few days after her brother's death, she learned she had breast cancer, which she battled in 2004-05.
