Debbie Orr was born to Marlin and Barbara Brumley on December 15, 1953 in Shreveport, LA. She passed from this life on March 1, 2018. Debbie had a larger than life personality and was a bright shining light to all she met. She made friends everywhere she went; to say that she never met a stranger is an understatement. Her outgoing personality lit up every room she entered. Debbie was devoted to her family. She loved planning parties and get-togethers with her Enron family, Bahama Tanning family, and her New Orleans Saints family.

Debbie’s husband, children, and grandchildren were her heart. She was the nucleus of her family. She loved spending time with them and doing things for them.

Debbie is preceded in death by her parents. Left to cherish her memory are her husband, Bennie Orr; her sons and daughters-in-law, Blaine and Amber Smith and Max and Crystal Orr; her grandchildren, Kaylee, McKenna, and Cassidy Smith, and Spencer and Autumn Orr; her sister, Janet Brumley; her niece and husband, Julee and Jeremy Botica; and her nephew, Joey Keith. Debbie is also survived by numerous other relatives.

Honoring Debbie as pallbearers will be: Josh Stanley, Rynn Tyler, Steve Sutton, Woody Woodall, Joey Keith, and Rodney Teutsch. Honorary pallbearers will be: Dewayne Stanley, Billy Lynch, Blaine Smith, Dale Teutsch, Max Orr, and Spencer Orr.

Debbie will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. The world will be dimmer now that her bright light is gone.

The family wishes to extend special thanks to the staff and doctors of Christus Highland.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations may be made to the American Cancer Society.

Thoughts and prayers to the family. So sorry for your loss. She will be greatly missed. I’m sure my mom was happily waiting for her in Heaven.

If there’s one thing “Aunt Deb” loved, it was playing Bunco. She looked forward to it every month! If she ever got a Bunco she would be sure to let ALL 12 of us know it-no matter how far apart the tables were. She was loud and proud...”BUNCO BUNCO BUNCO”, she would yell!! She will be very missed by her Bunco family. We all loved having her around. Till we meet again...hopefully there will be a bunco table. We will love and miss you, Sugar!

What a beautiful tribute to Debbie. She was everything as described. I will never forget the first time I saw her. She was dating a guy from Haughton and came to the campus to see him. All of us Haughton girls were mad she was dating one of our guys. She turned around and had her famous beautiful smile on her beautiful face and I remember being so ashamed that I had resented her! Never again.. actually married into her family and later divorced but she always introduced me still as her cousin! I loved her very much and always will, God has received a very special Angel. Debbie you will be so missed. Love to all.

Debbie was instantly likeable! And, you didn't have to be around her and Bennie more than five minutes to know they were very much in love with one another even after all the years. The obituary is "spot on" in describing her and her life. I am sending many thoughts and prayers to you Bennie; and to the children, grandchildren, and all who loved her. May God's comfort surround all of you.
