Debbie had worked as a waitress for the Frontier Grill for over 30 years and everyone knew and loved her because of her upbeat personality and heart of gold! She tried to see the best in everyone and as soon as you met her, she was your friend. Her boys were her whole life. When she became a grandmother, she was ecstatic, and the grandkids became the light of her life, she loved to refer to her girls as sweet-peas, and she was so proud of all of their accomplishments.
When she wasn’t working, she loved being a homemaker, a farmer, gardener, and landscaper. She had two very special friends, Terry McCurdy and Emily Gurule.
