Darlene “Debby” Winker passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, Sept 15, 2019 at her home. She was born Feb 12, 1947 in Buffalo NY to Robert and Bette Briggs. She was a long time resident of Slidell LA. She graduated from Kenmore East High School and studied at the University of Buffalo. Debby often said her biggest accomplishment was raising her daughters. She is survived by her 3 daughters, Christa White (Glen) Danielle Pope (Alton) and Elizabeth Espinosa (Andres); 8 grandchildren, Bailey White, Bryce White, Cade Pope, Cassandra Pope, Dominic Espinosa, Dante Espinosa, Sophie Espinosa and Alexa Espinosa; and 2 sisters Christine Bruner and Kathy Stewart. Debby was a kind soul that never met a stranger. She loved her family. Her favorite past time was spoiling her grandchildren, especially at Christmas. She leaves behind many beautiful memories and will be deeply missed by her friends and family. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls. 1 Peter 1:8-9 | NIV Services will be held at Grace Funeral Home, 450 Holy Trinity Drive, Covington, on Thursday afternoon, Sept 19, 2019 at 4:00.

Debbie and I were friends in Kenmore East High School. We had a lot of laughs back in the day. I am sorry we lost touch after graduation and to hear of her passing. Prayers to all.
