We are deeply saddened to hear of Debbie's passing. Our families started off as neighbors. Her grandson and my children became friends at a early age and now are best friends. She was always so sweet and kind and I could tell she loved her family tremendously. Her grandson loved his "Nana" and often spoke of her while visiting us. We are sending prayers for peace and comfort for the entire family. I know she will be missed very much.

My prayerful condolences to the family and friends that you may be comforted by the grace of God and your sweet memories of Debbie. Debbie’s kindness and love shown all around her and in everything she did. I was blessed to know her through work on the base and also through her church. My father immensely enjoyed Debbie’s painting class mission. Debbie was a special person. May God bless all of her family during this time.

Debbie was one of the most kindest woman I have ever met. She was a good friend and co-worker. I worked with her on the OV'10s and F4s. I never heard her utter any harsh words about anyone. She took me under her wings when I came to the aircraft line. When she started moving up the ladder she never forgot about me. She would come look for me and ask how I was doing, and if anyone was giving me any problems let her know. I was like thank you Debbie. She called me her little sister. To her family, she loved you all. I am so sorry for your loss, but she was a devoted wife and mother. I am so truly blessed to have known such a good woman. May God bless you all and remember all the good times. Praying for you. RIP my beautiful and wonderful friend. You will truly be missed.
