We LOVED having Debbie help us keep our home spiffy for 40 years! She always had a smile when she came with a friend or her daughter Angel. It was our pleasure to give Debbie a quilt tied with prayers as she traveled on her final journey. Blessings to her family and friends. This lovely lady will be missed by all.

Debbie was such a neat person. My friend of over 40 years. We cleaned together for 15 years and were on a pool league and bowling league for years together. She was fun, giving, understanding and a true friend. She was blessed with a wonderful family and loved them deeply. She was a strong lady that gave everything her all. I am proud to call her my friend. She will be missed by many. See you in Heaven my dear friend.

My AUNT!!

Debbie and I had a special bond. When I was younger, she was NOT happy with me when I talked Todd into moving to the great state of Texas! 😂

Later in life when I was older and more mature we realized how alike we were. Grandma use to always, always tell me o had “champagne appetite on beer income” just like my Aunt Debbie! Well Grandma, I can afford that champagne now if I liked it! 😂

Last May, my son and I took a road trip to MI to see her specifically! I am so thankful I did!

I will miss her very much but I am thankful she is no longer in pain! I will pray without ceasing that her children and everyone she touched will have a peaceful heart!

I love you always!

Your favorite nephew,
Johnny
