I met Debbie at Chicago O'Hare airport. I had flown in to see the Rangers play at wriggly field the night before. That day a huge storm had moved thru and the airport was a mess!

Debbie was kind enough to make sure I would make it on her flight and I would be able to get home. She even tried to come and find me at the last American flight for the night (which I didn't get a seat).

I sat next to her in the emergency exit that night and we talk the entire flight! I think we landed at 2 or 3 am but it was a flight that changed my life. She persuaded me to apply to be a pilot at Spirit airlines. She was so passionate about being a flight attendant that I wanted to work there too! A decision that has blessed my family so much. Not just in wealth but a work/life balance quality of life with my family I could never have dreamed of! Debbie plays a huge part in the success of my career!

I only got to work with her once or twice to express my appreciation. I am completely gutted to hear the news of her passing. I will sincerely miss our occasional texts about the Rangers!

I will never forget the day she climbed up on my locomotive to qualify the physical characteristics to complete her training for the position of Train Dispatcher here in Boston. I didn't know much about Grapevine Texas, but after our trip together, it sounded like a fun place and I certainly knew more about Debbie Couvillion.
Deb, thanks for the deep friendship. You were a good dispatcher to me; always friendly and helpful on the radio. I will cherish our outings to the 99 restaurants on many occasions. I learned so much about you as a person, the sad times in your life as well as the good times. The endless talks and discussions.
You are proud of your son and very happy to have a grandchild. You were so anxious to make a go of it here in Boston.
I was glad to be there for you after your accident in the dog park, bringing you to your Doctor's visits; it broke my heart to see you in that wheelchair struggling but always a good attitude, smiling face and ready for the next challenge. You are at peace now. no more pain, no more anxiety, and struggles that can be unbearable in ones life. Your kindness will live on in my heart.
Your friend, Chuck

I met Debbie when our sons were in grade school together. Sockhops, baseball, band and such. Debbie was friends with everyone. But I didn't really get to know her until reunited by mutual friends several years ago. It was never boring when Debbie was around. Our Grapevine get togethers won't be the same without her. She'll be dearly missed.

My friend, roommate, dog loving, kind hearted, sweet girl. We had more fun than tears, more life than pain and more good times than bad. You helped me through the most difficult time of my life, showing me how much more I was able to do than I ever knew. It started with a cupcake on my birthday followed by many more celebrations and happy times. My whole family came to love you and we always will. Rest easy my friend.

I met Debbie a few years back when I was walking my dog. We became instant friends and so did our furbabies. I knew she wasn't from around here because she was just too nice! She was always smiling no matter what she may have been dealing with. I will miss her sweet voice calling me to say hi and see how me and Cooper were doing. Fly high with angels my sweet friend. Until we meet again.

I had the opportunity to work with Debbie over the last 6 years in Boston, She brought her Texas charm, kindness, and warmth here to New England. She truly always welcomed everyone in as a friend from the moment you met her. I really enjoyed seeing all of the photos posted here throughout her life. She will be deeply missed!

Debbie’s kindness and support after I lost my brother meant a lot to me. I still remember the way she looked at me and the fierceness of her hug when we were in the cemetery at my brother’s graveside. She brought me light and love in that dark hour. A few weeks later she called to check on me. She told me, “Joyce I named a puppy, Bubba after your brother!” We laughed. I can still hear the sound of her laughter echoing in my heart. Love you! 🕊❤️
