She was Loved
Debra Elaine Parker “Debby” was born November 8th, 1957 to Jody and Pasty Parker. She graduated from earth December 4th, 2018 at the age of 61. She is survived by one brother, Joe Parker, his wife Michelle and children of Meridian; several cousins including Jim Jones and his wife Jill Jones who loved her very much, and many wonderful friends who loved her dearly.
Debby graduated from Richfield High School in 1976. She attended Idaho State University where she graduated with a degree in Social Work and went to work for the State of Idaho. Debby worked in Child Protection and after she left the State she worked as a hospital social worker. When she lived in Pocatello she was working for people with disabilities. When Debby decided to get her Master's in counseling she traveled back and forth to Montana to get her degree.
A celebration of Debby’s life will be held at 3 p.m. on April 5th at the Shoshone Cemetery, 82 US-26, Shoshone. A no host meal/gathering will be held at the Manhattan Café in Shoshone following the celebration.
Come share memories of Debby with those who loved and cared for her. I leave a small tribute to my friend Debby here.
I moved to Richfield when I was 2 months old and attended grades one through five there. When we move from the farm into town, Debby lived about a block down the road from me. We were friends. We played Monopoly together for hours and walked to the old farm often spending the night there. We had so many carefree summer days. Entering sixth grade I moved to Heyburn. She came to visit several times with Vicky Saul (Davis). Debbie graduated from Idaho State University and I graduated from Boise State University. We stayed in touch. She enjoyed crafts. And made three incredible teddy bear stockings for us. She also made the best sugar cookies!

I met Debby in the mid 1980's. We quickly became best friends. We both worked as Social Workers. Debby had a contagious laugh and was always ready to go on adventures. We did some traveling together and spent a lot of time enjoying life. Debby had her Bachelor degree from Idaho State and a Master's degree from an out of State school. She was extremely intelligent. I will dearly miss my friend.
