Debra “Debby” Ann Robbins passed away on June 25, 2018 in Tucson, Arizona after a valiant and protracted battle against a sudden illness. She was born October 7, 1953 in Sentinel, Oklahoma to Harold Odell and Roberta Marie Ward. While in high school Debby met George H Robbins II and they were married on June 17, 1972 in Wichita Falls, Texas. Shortly thereafter George was ordered to active duty in the US Army and they embarked upon various tours that included duty stations in Georgia, New Jersey, Okinawa, Hawaii, and Mississippi, ultimately landing at Ft. Huachuca, AZ. Debby and George loved Sierra Vista and the Huachuca Mountains so they decided to stay. In 1980 George traded his uniform for civilian attire, and in May 1980 Debby blessed the family with a beautiful daughter Kristen.

Debby was very supportive and active in Kristen's education, career, and the special functions that went along with Kristen's job. Debby also managed to put up with George's rough edges for over 46 years with patience and grace. Debby was independent and single handedly ran the family when George was away on his many TDY trips. Debby cared deeply about family and friends. She helped George take care of his father when he relocated to Sierra Vista. And she devoted tremendous time and effort taking care of her parents back in Texas, to include relocating her mother to Sierra Vista. Quite simply Debby was a loving wife, mother, and best friend to both George and Kristen. She was the wonderful glue that made us a special family. To say that we miss her deeply is a gross understatement.

Debby is survived by her husband of 46 years George H. Robbins II, daughter Kristen Yvonne Robbins, mother Roberta Ward, brother Larry (Linda) Ward, nephew Lenny (Jessica) Ward, niece Lorie Ward and Sedona puppy and Elvira kitty. She will be missed by many extended family and loving friends.

In accordance with Debby's wishes the family will have a private service on Friday, June 29, 2018, in Mesa AZ. George and Kristen invite you to visit Debby's Memorial website to sign the Register and share memories and photos with us and each other at

Krissy, I am so sorry that I didn't know about your Mom. I was in shock. She's so young. I wasn't aware she was in the hospital.
I remember meeting her when we worked together. She was such a pretty lady and very creative. You have inherited that talent.
May God bless You and your Dad and Grandmother in your journey ahead. Love Peggy

Krissy, I remember most, the gracious hospitality your Mom and Day showed me when I went with you to Sierra Vista to help with a service , such warm and caring family. Also the fun with the Halloween display at your house in Mesa. Your Mom was so much fun, a great loss to all who knew and loved this special lady.
Love and Prayers, ( I forgot that your Gram's name was Roberta too.)
Love and Blessings,

Susan and I want to give or sincere condolences to your family for your loss of a best friend, wife and mother . Debby will not only be missed by the family but by all the many friends that she had acquired through her life time. We were not privileged to have been able to see and talk to her in many years due to our move from AZ to GA but we will never forget our friendship we had with her.

We didn't get to see Debbie (and George) as much as we might have liked to after everyone started retiring, but we will always remember the warmth she generated and the welcoming smile we always got from her.

We always enjoyed the conversations we shared with her, and we always parted feeling a sense of calm and joy.

She was a very special person, and we want to wish her family peace and love.

My sincere condolences for your great loss. It is never easy when we lose someone we love but it is especially painful when we lose our mother. Mother’s are so special in so many ways. Please take good care of your father. May your treasured memories bring your family joy and comfort in the months and years to come. And may our Creator’s promise as found at Revelation 21:3,4 bring your family hope.
