She was compassionate, gracious, and loved others beyond measure. After several years as Director of private daycare centers, Debbie spent additional years of dedicated service in the Association of Christian Schools International as an Inspector of private preschools and daycare centers. In recent years, she enjoyed an exemplary and tranquil life of caring for her home and family, her flowers and birds, and taking trips to visit much-loved out-of-town family.
