On Saturday, April 27, 2019, Deborah Sue Johnson, age 51, went to be with our Lord, her dad, Kenneth E. Weaver and her granddaughter Grace.

Deborah held God and her family as the center of her life. She is survived by her loving husband of 20 years Dennis Alan Johnson, her beautiful daughter Brittany Scott, her husband Nick and son Owen Scott. Her mother Madeline Weaver, her sister Joanna ‘Boo’ and family, Dwayne and Jonathan Osburg and nieces and nephew. She loved her dogs Shotzi, Bevo and Hope.

Deborah attended UTSA in her 40’s and received her Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. While working at the Center for Health Care Services, she received her LCDC (Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor).

She loved windmills, Halloween, snowmen, and the outdoors, whether it was hiking or in the water, any type of water- the pool, the river or the Texas coastline. She especially loved Garner State Park which is where Deb and Dennis got engaged.

Deborah loved butterflies. Not only did she love their beauty, but to her they symbolized rebirth. So if you see one in the next few days, look closely at them and how beautiful they are. One could be Deb flying around to say goodbye!

Loved forever and a day.….

Debbie my friend, my little sister, I am very sad that you have left us. I know that you are at peace and in Heaven with your Dad. I will miss you but have such great memories of our lives together. We have known each other forever and I remember growing up with you and Joanna as our families kept getting stationed in the same places. We had some adventures and tons of fun.

One of my fondest memories was when you, me, Joanna and Chris (my brother) would play Gilligan’s Island. We would build forts and huts out of blankets, sheets, couch cushions or whatever we could find. We pretended to be on that show and it never got old. I remember me being the Professor, you were Ginger, Joanna was Mary Ann and Chris was of course Gilligan. You were always so glamorous and my brother was so silly. We were always trying so hard to get rescued. We had a blast.

We went to a lot of cool places and we saw some things that most people don’t get to see. I remember trips to San Antonio to visit and when you all came to El Paso to see us or go camping. As we got older, we drifted apart a bit, but when we saw each other, even after a long time, it was as if we had never been apart.

You had and will always have a special place in my heart. I will miss you my friend, but we will see each other again someday in the Glory of Heaven. So long Ginger, save a place for me on that Deserted Island…

Brittney and family,

Your Once Upon A Child family just wanted to let you know that we are so sorry for your loss. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. If there is anything that you need, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

I loved the butterfly story. Just yesterday, Kensie wanted to catch a butterfly because she thought it was so beautiful. Such a wonderful memory and thought for every butterfly that enters your path/journey. Your Mom will forever be your butterfly!

My mom loved going out with me and hanging out with me as much as possible.

Although she is my husband's cousin I didn't spend much time with Debbie because of the distance. But the few times we did spend (mostly holidays)were always fun and she was always very friendly and welcoming. My favorite memory is the time I was about 19 and (thinking I did something really great), I bought Debbie and Dennis a really pretty blue vase and I was so excited for them to open it. When they did they noticed it was cracked. I was so upset and so embarrassed. But they both said they loved it anyway and told me how beautiful it was and how much they loved it and both gave me big hugs. I'll never forget how that made me feel so much better to know (even if they really didn't)they made me feel like it was the best gift ever! Iwill also miss playing online games with her!
She will truly be missed ♡
