Deborah Ann Whatley Thomas, age 68, of Keithville, Louisiana passed away on Tuesday December 25, 2018. She was born December 5, 1950 in Chattanooga, Tennessee to Clarence Whatley and Vera Stalion Whatley. There are three steps to heaven, out of self, into Christ and into glory. Deb took these first two steps and lived a happy beautiful life in Christ. Now, she has taken the third step, where there is no more weeping, no pain, no sorrow and no disappointments! Her spirit will be cherished in the hearts of her husband, A.D. Thomas; sisters, Sylvia Touloupis and Gail Krieger; brother, Tommy; children, Andre, Dawn and Telisha; step-child, Lasonya Thomas; and grandchild, Obadiah Holliday. She is preceded in death by her parents, Clarence and Vera. Perhaps you sent a lovely card or sat quietly in a chair; perhaps you sent a floral piece, if so, we saw it there. Perhaps you spoke the kindest words as any friend could say. Perhaps you were not there at all, just thought of us that day. Whatever you did to console our hearts we “Thank You” so much, whatever the part. The family of “sister” Deborah Ann Whatley Thomas will receive visitors on Wednesday, January 2, 2019 from 6:00 PM until 7:00 PM at Centuries Memorial Funeral Home, 8801 Mansfield Rd, Shreveport, Louisiana 71108.

Our hearts are torn as we mourn this special lost.
I came to know Deborah and A.D. when we were stationed in San Diego. My husband, Mac knew them before as their parents were in the Army together.

We were fortunate and blessed to have them open up their home to us as we waited for our home to be ready. I saw how meticulous she was in keeping her house clean and washed every day. We enjoyed clean wash cloths and towels while living with them . Enjoyed A.D.’s spinach with bacon on top. From that, we enjoy the same.
We will miss her and send condolences to A.D., Andrea, Michelle, Telisha, Sylvia and Gail.

Love you all and we are sorry we could not be present as I lost an aunt in Denver the day after Christmas. Funeral is coming up.

I had the privilege of knowing Deborah for only a few short months. A privilege it was.....she was such a sweet soul & never held back her love for God & all his people. Her presence will be missed by many & my heart goes out to her family who will begin the journey of living without their loved one.

Deborah cared for and helped many people in their time of need. She was truly a giving spirit and will be missed by so many.

Deb was always so loving and kind towards me. I truly loved her for accepting me into her family. I would tell her that her loving, kind and sweet spirit reminded me of my mother and how I wish they could meet. Maybe they will find one another in heaven now. She would always check up on me when she hadn't heard from me in a while, or she would call me to let me know what was going on with my Dad, or she would call just to let me know she was praying for me and that she put me on the prayer list at her church. I will miss our many phone conversations. She will always have a special place in my heart.
