Debbie loved people just as they were, and she really enjoyed a good pair of jeans and t-shirt (on special occasions she would put on a dress and celebrate). Debbie found beauty all around her. We would like you to please join us as you wish to come! In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to one of the following non-profit charities. If your circumstances don’t allow that, please just send a prayer.
1. Family Promise of Brevard; – Debbie was known to help out someone who just needed a place to stay for the night or just needed a shower and a meal. She never judged a person on circumstances and this charity helps families rebuild their future and end their homelessness.
2. Rescuing Veterans Lost in America; – Debbie lost her father to the Vietnam war, her step father was a Vietnam Veteran and she had many, many friends who were Veterans of war. She was involved with the VFW and rarely missed the moving wall when it came to Brevard.

Debbie was a special friend. She was my Sergeants At Arms when I was President at American Legion Post 200 we always had a good time no matter what we did. She was very dedicated to whatever she did. Losing her is losing a real angel here but God is gaining one in heaven. Thoughts and prayers with the family. You will be missed our friend but we will see you again on the other side. Lisa and Sandy
