I will miss Deb’s smile and stories about fun vacation locations over the lunch room table. My deepest sympathy.

I enjoyed working with Deb for nearly the past 20 years. She was dedicated to her job, friends and family.
Anyone that knew Deb knows how much she enjoyed counting down to the things she was looking forward to in life. Even though God doesn't give us a date to count down to the day when He takes us home, I am sure she is having the best vacation ever!
Our hearts and prayers go out to you Rick, Chris, Brad, Janelle and the rest of Deb's family. Please let us know if there is anything we can do.

Our deepest sympathy,
Julie and Greg Eley

I'm so sorry Rick for you and your family loss. I worked with Debbie at K mart Warehouse. We seemed to see each other often after the Kmarts .
She was a very good friend. My prayers for you and your family.

Rick and family, I’m stunned and shocked by Deb’s passing. She was a loving wife, mom and grandma that will certainly be missed. I will miss her contagious smile and humor. She was a great coworker, friend and confidant. May the Lord Jesus Christ embrace her and take her into the Heavens until we meet again.

With Sincere an Deepest Sympathy,
Greg Geary

Yesterday I got the sad news from my sister.

My condolences go out to Deb's family--especially to Rick, who I went to grade school with at Bethlehem oh so many years ago.
