Debbie was a great person. Full of life, intelligent, and always willing to share her knowledge and expertise. Never afraid of a challenge, Debbie dug into whatever she pursued to solve problems and get answers. I knew that if Debbie was working on a problem for me, she would give it her best and find the right solution. Her passing is a great loss for the community. My deep condolences to Scott and your family.

I knew Debbie as a wonderful mother to a great friend (Becky) and a fabulous grandma to Olivia. I feel lucky to have even known her just a little and to have witnessed the unconditional love and support she had for her family. Sending love and strength to her beautiful family!

We are so heartbroken at the passing of Debbie. Remembering the family gatherings in South Hill and Richmond and as young kids the Christmas mornings our familes would spend together at Aunt Agnes and Uncle Stafford's house. Sending our love, thoughts and prayers to Scott, Becky, Sean, Olivia, Bobbie, Bubba and the entire Roberts/Jackson family. May the wonderful memories of happy times bring you peace and comfort.

An incredible loss. Debbie was one of my coding mentors who was always willing to give, share and encourage us. She never waivered and was just an all around great person to work with, to learn from and to know. My deepest condolences and I will keep you all lifted in love, prayer and strength.
