Debbie Peters was born on March 5, 1954 in Austin, Texas to Smittie and Jean Clark. She passed away from complications of a heart attack on October 8, 2019.

Debbie was a wonderful mother, daughter, sister, and friend. Her family and friends will remember her for her sense of humor, and laid-back non-judgemental attitude.

She recently retired for health reasons, but if it were up to Debbie, she would have continued to work. Debbie was, and is, so loved, and will be truly missed.

When I moved over to Building B, Debbie immediately made me feel at home. She was so kind, caring, and giving. She gave so much without anyone ever asking. I loved hearing about the goings on in her life and playfully teasing her. Debbie was revered by so many, and she will be so missed.

Debbie and I worked together at TCEQ. She loved her work and her team! She always greeted everyone with her wonderful smile and always had time to chat for a bit or help you out. She shared stories of her family and prayed with you when you were in need. I will miss her very much but will cherish her memory in my heart. Hugs, Deb! You are so loved! - Dael 💙

Debbie:

Not sure how to say goodbye. Miss you so much. You were a light in this dark world spreading laughter, sunshine and goodness. Your humor kept us laughing, your kindness and generosity kept us grateful and humble. Above all, your faithful friendship, love and concern for all of us kept us afloat in the daily madness. We will never forget you. I am sure the saints in heaven are appreciating the help. Well done good and faith servant.
Until I see you again.

Debbie was a wonderful coworker and friend. Hard-working, positive, Good Samaritan, and a brave woman. I'm glad we stayed connected for almost 20 years and I was able to enjoy her friendship. She will be greatly missed by so many people who had the joy to meet her.

Debbie was always kind and would have a smile for me, no matter what was going on. She was here when I started working at the TCEQ, and I've missed her almost everyday since she retired. Her spirit was vibrant - I hope all the way to the end; the world won't be the same without her. My thoughts are with her family - may her love be a comfort as you remember your time together.

Debbie was one of those people that came into your life and you are better because of it. This world is a sadder place now that she is gone.

Debbie was such a warm and caring person. No matter what was going on in her life, she always took the time to care about others and ask how they were doing. She prioritized sharing a laugh with a friend, and her sense of humor was a gift to us all. May we all honor her memory be being a little kinder, more caring and considerate, and smiling against the odds.

Deb was one of a kind! She made us laugh and took care of all of us through genuine care and hard work . We sometimes called her mom.

Through all that she faced with the loss of her son and husband and her health issues, she maintained that great attitude and sense of humor. The memory I have of her that tells who she was best was when I arrived at her husband's service all teary eyed thinking of her losing her husband. She stopped what she was doing and walked over with a laugh and comforted me!!! That was the kind of person she was. Always positive and taking care of others. She would do anything for anyone, it didn't matter who you were. She made no judgments and asked for nothing in return.

I so miss our Deb and will always think of her as part of our family!

May you all find peace, love, and laughter in her memory.

Debbie was the most positive person I've ever met. Combined with her sense of humor, she brightened any situation. I agree with Pat that "heart of gold" describes Debbie perfectly. She cared about people and in turn they cared about her. She was a huge loss when she left our team and now a devastating loss as she leaves our lives. Rest in peace Debbie. Well met and well remembered.
