Debi George, 72, of Woodstock, GA passed away April 24, 2021. She was born December 20, 1948 in Oklahoma to the late Robert and Hazel Phillips.
Debi was a very loving and dedicated wife, mother and grandmother. She was the most selfless person completely devoted her to family and their every need. Debi was the ultimate sports fan and avid fan of OU football (Go Sooners!) and the Atlanta Braves. Hilton Head Island was the family vacation spot that Debi would tell you she felt closest to God and family and where she enjoyed biking along the beach.
Debi leaves behind her loving husband of 46 years, Don George; children, Kimberli Effner and husband Darick and Christopher George and wife Shelby; grandchildren Jace Effner and Caleb who is on the way; sisters, Wendye Dashner and Pamela Wilson; and many loving nieces and nephews.

To Don & Family,
As part of the extended family, please accept our condolences and prayers during this time of unexpected loss. As an older cousin, Debi was always a kind and bubbly influence over the younger brood at the family reunions - of which there were many. Cindy & I were privileged to attend Debi & Don's wedding and wished them the best over life's journey. May God's blessing and protecting hand be with you in the coming days and years, knowing that Debi is already Home and getting things ready for the next great Family Reunion. As Debi's Uncle Glen Adams prayed with all the family gathered round, "May the Circle be unbroken" when next we are with the Lord. See you there!

I had the pleasure of knowing Debi and her death comes as an absolute shock. We spent many hours at the baseball fields watching our sons play together in high school. Debi was always so kind, funny and hospitable. I know her family will miss her terribly and my thoughts and prayers will be with them in these next difficult days. With many fond memories of Debi and my sincere condolences to the family. Patty Johnson

Debi was a loving and compassionate sister-in-law. She was the anchor of the Phillips girls. My wife loved her deeply and looked to her as a "mother" figure, since their mother had passed away in 1968. Debi was intelligent, caring, and devoted to family. Her death is untimely and assuaged only by knowing that God receives his own and they will live again. Our prayers are with the family who will carry own her legacy. This is no small feat. God bless her memory.

There have been a lot of memories of aunt Debi come to mind lately. Just a few include:
Summer nights in the pool
Debi jumping in the pool after I fell in the pool as a kid (thank God since mom froze with fear, haha)
Her GIANT blue van that we rode in all over the country
Passing her bow tie pasta salad through the kitchen window into the sunroom for dinner
Fondue nights. Something I now do with my family
Bringing us home “special treats” anytime she and mom went somewhere without us
Making me camo sleeping bags and tents for my G.I. Joe’s. I thought those were so cool
Her laugh, amazing sense of humor and overall wit
Taking mom and I to Disney World with her family
Multiple trips to Hilton Head
Her birthday cards always signed with a smiley face
Sitting with me in the Atlanta airport until I was able to board my flight home when I was a kid. I’m sure she got me a special treat too
Sending me a Jeremy Camp CD when I was in college, just because
Going to Stone Mountain with KFC. Then riding home with the ambient lighting inside that giant blue van
Singing “good morning to you” anytime she would wake us up in the morning. Something I also do with my kids
There are many more. I’m going to miss her very much.

I have so many fond and fun memories of Debi going back 57 years. I loved her bubbly personality, laugh and endearing spirit. We spent a fun time in the summer of 1969 in Princeton, NJ & New York . I admired her fun spirit and love of family. She will be missed by many but has now rejoined her parents and loved ones in Heaven!
