Deborah Ann McClintoch

January 3, 1954June 28, 2020

Deborah Ann McClintoch passed away June 28, 2020 at her home. She was an adoring wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was born and raised in Poughkeepsie, NY and graduated from John Jay High School in Poughkeepsie. She was a resident of TN for 45 years. Debbie retired from her administrative position with Metro-Nashville Davidson County School System June 2015. After retirement she was the church secretary for Old Hickory Church of the Nazarene.

Preceded in death by Husband Robert McClintoch and Father George Shea.

She is survived by her three daughters; Marci (Stephen) Harbour of Smyrna, Bobbi McClintoch of Nashville, and Makayla Bailey (Randy Nguyen) of Old Hickory; granddaughter Olivia Harbour of Columbia; grandson Micah Harbour of Smyrna; great-grandaughter Estella Nguyen of Old Hickory; Mother Janet Kuchenmeister; sisters Melissa Venable, of Spring Hill, Mary Carney of Lebanon; brothers George Kuchenmeister and Lary Kuchenmeister, and many nieces, nephews, cousins and a large extended family and church family.

Debbie was one of a kind. She left this world to be with her Jesus and husband, Bob. She leaves her family with a legacy of faith, love, and strength.

Her recent passion was spending time with her great-granddaughter, Estella V. Debbie was gifted with a servant’s heart and loved serving others through her church and community outreach. She was an avid advocate for animals and was so fond of her dogs.

Debbie’s presence was full of life and light. She endured her trials with an abundance of courage and grace. She enjoyed adventures and outings with her ladies group, as it brought her so much joy to be in community with others. Debbie loved so, so well and will be deeply missed. We cannot wait to see you again!

Due to the recent COVID-19 phase 2 change in Davidson County, a private Celebration of Life memorial service will be held for immediate family.

The family has asked that in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be made for Makayla Bailey via check c/o Marci Harbour to 207 Brookhaven Trail, Smyrna, TN 37167 or Venmo @DebbieMac-MemorialFund

We are saddened and offer our condolences to the family. Debbie was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She was a kind and generous friend, sharing holiday meals and anything she had with others. She and Bob were always great friends to us and will be truly missed.

My heart is heavy. I miss you a whole bunch and always will. I thank God that you were exactly what I needed every day for 41 years. ❤️

You were also the BEST Nonnie to our family.

I cannot wait until I see you again.

My condolences to the family,
One of my daily routines was stopping by her office to hang out or just say hi, her smile & attitude was contagious. Growing up as one of the school friends to her daughters she looked out for us all as if we were her own.
I hope and pray for comfort for family

You are forever in my memory as one of my favorite “2nd Moms” in Old Hickory. I knew that if I ever needed anything, I could come to Bobbi’s house. You were stern when we needed it but oh so sweet to so many of us Old Hickory kids. You’ll never know how much we all loved you! I know you’re in heaven with your love now. Rest in peace sweet Debbie.

As I sit heartbroken, I have so many memories our families have shared from the past 30+ years, from the girls sleepovers, softball games, and our husbands doing paint jobs together or just hanging out, to both our careers at MNPS, but my most heartfelt is when you told me you wanted to start coming to church and bring Makayla and how did I like OHNAZ well I must say you listened and came and came again and again and again, we had so much in common with our families , even though I will miss you dearly I now you are with your Bob when I seen the double rainbow on Sunday afternoon. I love you and will miss you dearly till me meet again

Dear DebbieMac,
You truly are Big Mac with all those layers of goodness: double meat (to get a job done calmly and on time), special sauce ( oozing with fun, flavor, and kindness in all the spots the rest of us don't think about), soft bun--top, middle, bottom (love, top-to-bottom, beginning to end). You helped me find the track and stay on the track--with that "oozing" kindness--so many times. And, speaking of tracks, you drove like a dream to Debbie's, cool as a cucumber through drivers cutting in, storms, dark nights...you name it. And, I cherish our conversations that always ended on an "up" beat, especially about your puppies.

I heard about your leaving at the end of a storm--sun coming out while it was still sprinkling. I felt the Lord prompt me to go outside and look for a rainbow. I was sad. I didnt want to. But, I did. No rainbow. Some tree drippings watered my hair generously--almost like a joke. Everything felt so new and fresh and alive. Then I realized I had found the rainbow. You.
You always brought sunshine to any storm. Always. You left us after wave after wave of storm but not without your sun ray faith that things would work out and get better.
The next day I am on my way to work, stopped at a stop light, my heart broken over your loss. All of a sudden, a hundred tiny rainbows (from my earring) start dancing over my hands and steering wheel! I cried. The Lord was once again honoring you and comforting me.
DebbieMac, thank you for all the times you held us together as choich secretary, thank you for your zeal and love for your family, and thank you for all the moving and grooving at Anita's Chair Yoga. Thank you for bringing all that layered Big Mac goodness to us and being such a constant rainbow of God's promise of better things to come. I am glad you are with your Rainbow Maker and your dear Bob. I miss you bad, but I look for the good, like you taught me. Love, Chris

It is very difficult to talk about just one memory for Debbie as we worked in the same office for many years at HLHS. She was wonderful with whom to work and very good at what ever she was doing. She was a life saver many times for us in guidance as we struggled to get everything on line . She was always a voice of reason with Houston Reagan and a great assistant for him. I never saw her really get upset about anything and was very comforting to the rest of us when we were at our wits end over especially some computer glitch. I could wish for anyone that they have a Debbie to help you get through the good and rough times in education. I send my condolences to her family. She will be sorely missed my many. May she RIP.
