Debbie and I met when we dated brothers, Vandy and William. She fell in love right away. Over the years, as our families grew we vacationed together many times. My favorite was when we drove to Steamboat Springs Colorado.
Vandy was a fast driver. William could hardly keep up with him. I remember Debbie, Vandy Bill and I skied together all day but decided to go on one more run. Debbie and I got on the lift together and as the lift rose to about 5 feet.,.we both fell off. Neither of us were hurt. We have laughed about this many times over the years.

Debbie lived by us as kids. She started first grade with my brother. My nephew grew up playing baseball with her boys. From the first time I saw her as a child until now I have always thought she was the sweetest and prettiest girl/woman I had ever seen. This is a great loss.

I am so sorry for the loss of your Wife, Mom, MeMaw, Sister and Friends. Deb was my long time friend, my bestie for all of growing up days. I even had the honor to be her maid of honor in her wedding. I was also honored to be in the waiting room when that first little bundle of joy came into the world. Lots of years passed, being busy with life, but the friendship never ended. The last few years the contact was weekly and I am forever Thankful. 💜💜 She fought hard and she did a great job. Her love for the Lord and faith and strength will be handed down for years to come. I love all you so much, and each and everyone of you will always be very special to me. I am Thankful I will see you again one day, my precious friend, sister. 👼💜💜💜

I have so many fond memories with my Aunt Debbie. At 8 years old, I loved spending the holidays with her and cried when we had to leave. I remember the river tubing trips with the whole family and the Holiday family parties in Austin, Texas. She instilled in me traits important as a mother, woman, and wife. It is not only important to show up and cheer for your Son or Daughter at their concert or ball game but detrimental. She was so sweet with me and my family. We all adored and respected her. She was worthy...

My deepest sympathies to Vandy and Judy and to all of the family. I know her children and grandchildren and her devoted husband and sister were her greatest joys. Your closeness as a family is a tribute to her circle of love.
We have been "always friends" since Junior High. Now I will always miss her.
Love to all of you! Marty

My last memory with Memaw was a pretty special one. I was home from college and we went and had a birthday dinner on Sunday October 24th for pops. Memaw knew I loved to do hair and makeup and especially do hers. She always wanted me to draw on some eyebrows for her or add some eyeshadow. Memaw always looked so beautiful but I was happy to help her feel even more beautiful. The night we went over for dinner she asked me to fix her hair while I was in town and had the opportunity. I kept getting so nervous I was going to burn her because her her is thinner. I straightened her hair and by the end it just stood straight up like a big Afro. I really tried my hardest not to laugh but I just really didn’t know how to fix it. Mom came to the rescue and put some product to calm the frizz and helped me make memaw feel pampered. Sharing this last memory with memaw was one I will never forget. I wish I got to see her one more time but I know it was all in gods hands💜 I love you memaw💜

Debbie and I grew up in the same neighborhood. We went to Retta Brown Elementary, Rogers Jr High and our path crossed many times during adulthood until she moved out of state.
She was beautiful inside and out!!
Praying for God’s peace and love to comfort her family and friends during this very difficult time and all the days ahead.
Gone to soon! Rest In Peace. ❤️

I started first grade with Debbie. We lost contact after I changed schools. Later, through the miracle of Facebook, we reconnected. I got to see her husband, whom she adored, and watch her kids and grandkids grow up. She was so proud of them! She will be missed by so many! RIP, Debbie!

I am so sad and shocked of Debbie’s passing. I have such fond memories of her dating Vandy and hanging out with my friends along with her brother Tommy, and friends Charlie and Garland, and so many more. She was so young. I’ve enjoyed our Facebook visiting. She will be so missed. My prayers and thoughts are with all
of her family. Blessings and comfort to Vandy and all of your family I am so sorry for your loss .
