Debbie was born March 7, 1960 in New Iberia to Deanna Primeaux John and the late Sliman Joseph John, and passed away Thursday, January 3, 2019 at Iberia Medical Center with her family at her side. She was 58. Debbie was the oldest of five daughters and made growing up in the John household a fun time. She lived life to the fullest and enjoyed every day as if it were her last and feared nothing. Her best attributes were her kind heart and infectious laugh. And if you didn’t know her or had never met her, she made sure to get to know you and you were her friend for life after that. Debbie also was very talented in the kitchen and was a great cook. She measured nothing and prepared a meal to feed as many as she could and it was great. She leaves a legacy of love and many wonderful and fun memories that will be kept in the hearts of all who knew and loved her. Rest well Debbie. Until we meet again.

Debbie was preceded in death by her father, Sliman Joseph John; and her grandparents, Elma Crawford, Dalton Primeaux, Saleem John and Latifie John.

It was Debbie’s request that her family serve as pallbearers and those having the honor are Elmo and Landon Cormier, Tommy Menard, Angelo Drago, Buddy and Gabrielle Boudreaux, Kenny and Collin Pellerin, Bryan Boss and Steve Matte.

I pray that the choirs of angels welcome her to paradise...the holy women lead her to the Throne of the Savior, and our Blessed Mother Mary wrap her loving arms around her. May she rest her head on the chest of Christ as He takes from her the cross she has been carrying, and place upon her head, a crown of victory.

You are all in my prayers and my thoughts, and my love.
