Debra was a beautiful woman with a kind soul. She was very creative and was always working on a project. Debra loved the outdoors and enjoyed RV camping with family and friends. She was affectionately known as “Meme” and cherished every opportunity she had to spend time with her grandchildren at their sporting events and get-togethers. Debra had taken up target practice in the country and was quickly earning the nickname of Annie Oakley. She enjoyed shopping, Pokeno and spoiling her short-legged fur baby, Honey Bunny. Debra will forever be remembered for her self-less compassion and care for others. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Susan G. Komen Foundation or the American Heart Association.
