We all loved Aunt Debbie dearly. She was such a sweet & thoughtful person & a devout Christian. I know she is rejoicing in Heaven with the Lord & basking in all the rewards of Heaven, and what a family reunion she must be having!

The one thing that we will all ways remember about Sis Debbie. I never heard her ask for prayer for her self. She was all ways asking for prayer for others. Standing in the gap, interceding for the needs of other.

We will miss our cousin Debbie so much! She was a very special person and we loved her very much! May The Lord bring comfort and strength to all of her family and friends. I know Debbie loved each and every one of you. My husband Barry and I, along with my mother-in-law, Patsy Green (Debbie’s 2nd cousin) send you all our deepest condolences.

I would like to share a poem I wrote in Debbie’s memory.


You were precious and so very sweet,
To those who knew you and those you’d

Always helpful and very kind,
Are my thoughts of you when you
come to mind;

A loving heart you’d always share,
With family and friends— You were
always there;

An angel you were for all in need,
A selfless woman you were indeed;

A blessing to others, beyond compare,
So very special— So very rare;

One of compassion with strength from
You fought the good fight through your
faith and God’s Love;

Although it is felt, that you’ve gone too fast,
You’re suffering and illness are things
of the past;

For The Lord has delivered His promises true,
And restored our dear Debbie to her
Heavenly new!

Love In Christ,
Sandy Springer

Debbie was one of the sweetest and kindest ladies I have ever known. She had a real genuine love and concern for others. May God comfort y'all. My heart is breaking, but I'm glad her suffering is over and she's with her loved ones and with Jesus. Edith Kizer Clark
