Debbie loved her children and grandchildren and thought of them constantly.
She is a 1968 graduate of Kelly High School in Beaumont. Debbie worked at Lamar University in Beaumont for ten years.
She then moved to Bryan, Texas taking a job in the parking department of Texas A&M until her retirement in 2011.
She was an avid Aggie fan and could talk non-stop about Texas A&M.
Debbie loved working in her yard. It was always well groomed.
Neighbors would stop to comment on its beauty.
When she wasn’t working in her yard, she liked to detail her car, and would gladly detail yours if you’d let her.
Debbie even offered to drive to Louisiana to detail her brother-in-law Patrick’s car!
Her constant companions for the past ten years were her German Shepherd dog, Alex, and her Belgian Malinois, Hana.
Debbie started showing signs of Parkinson’s Disease in 1999 and was diagnosed in 2003.
The family would like to thank Right At Home Care, especially Queen; Lyn, DaNae and Nancy of Amedisys Hospice Care of Bryan, and the staff at Peach Creek Assisted Living. A very special thank you to long time friend and neighbor Carrollyn Kropp.
A memorial service will be conducted by Sister Jane Meyer Tuesday, June 15, at 10:00 at Levingston Funeral Home in Port Neches. Burial will follow at Oak Bluff Memorial Park Cemetery, Port Neches.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Dominican Sisters of Houston.
