Deborah dedicated her life to her family. Being home cooking and baking and doing crafts was her HEART. She loved raising her children and enjoyed leadership roles in both the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. Her membership at the Brookville Church of God and serving her church is where she found real JOY. She was a mentor to others battling cancer and provided advice and prayer to help others through their journey. She was a beaming light in this world and was a genuine and loyal friend to many. Her infectious laugh, fun spirit and amazing sense of humor was contagious . She will be truly and forever missed.
