I grew up with Debbie in Proctor. She had a wonderful personality and a kind heart. She was a very special person and always there if anyone needed help. She will be missed dearly by all that knew her.

I clicked with Debbie the moment I met her at the first retreat she attended at The Compass Centre - probably the little bit of wickedness in us both! Debbie loved all of her family and Ian was such an unexpected joy when he came into their lives. Wayne ... what can I say, she adored you and your easy going laid back personality. Kourtney and Baker ... she was so very proud of the two of you and the wonderful adults you have become. Debbie and her retreat "moo-moos will be missed." Some of us called her the "Flashing Missionary". (quite a story behind that one!)

I met Debbie in 1985 when her daughter Courtney started taking dancing. We hit it off and became very very close friends. She was the most fun person I have been around in a long time. she was so caring and adored her two children. This world will truly miss her she touched a lot of peoples lives. I feel very blessed that I got to know her and she was one of my dear friends . I gave her a plaque for mother of the year at one of my read titles. if anybody’s deserved it it was her. We would sit for hours and talk and laugh and laugh and laugh. we love you Debbie and we will miss you!

Wayne and Family: “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal. Love leaves a memory no one can steal.” – Irish headstone ~ Cherish your sweet memories. You have my deepest sympathy.

Few people come into your life that you experience an instant rapport with. Debbie was that special person for me. There are no words to describe our sadness at her passing. She was so loved by so many and , needless to say, will be missed by all.

My heart hurts but I know that Debbie is where God wants her to be. I met Debbie at a quilt retreat and immediately fell in love with her quick wit and friendly personality. She always wanted to know about my granddaughter (Camryn) and her funny little sayings. Before too long she was telling me about Ian and his funny little sayings. She actually gave one of the other quilters her Native Indian name (Chief Sewing Dot). When it was time for bed she always had to check in with Wayne and Ian and then go change her costume(her way of saying she was putting on her pjs). I truly loved her and miss her and know that I will get to see her again in heaven!

Debbie took me under her wing when I met her in Jinju, South Korea. She is a true gem. I’m so sad to hear of her passing.
Todd and Sue Gibson left a message on June 15, 2022:
We met Wayne and Debbie in Japan as well. It was our first and only foreign work assignment and we were excited, nervous, a little sad at leaving children and grandchildren behind, but looking forward. Debbie immediately took us under her wing and became -along with Wayne- a wonderful friend, helper, teacher and shopper. “It’s an Adventure!” We had great times there and when we all came home we were so happy to live close by. Thank you Debbie and Wayne for everything. Debbie you are and will be missed. We will do our best to stand by your Wayne! Until we meet again dear friend. ❤️

Debbie appeared in my life when I was a young mother of two little girls. We met as neighbors when she started to live in Japan, and instantly became good friends. Being with Debbie and Wayne was always fun for my daughters and the love they poured on little girls was precious, giving me great comfort and encouragement . I wanted to see Debbie again taking my grown-up daughters, talk a lot and renew our old friendship. Debbie, you are special and will be forever. We will miss you.

Nothing the heart gives away is gone. It is kept in the hearts of others in perpetuity.

Debbie’s obituary is beautifully written and perfectly her. She was exuberant. She was a blessing. I met her when I arrived in Chinju, South Korea. She was the mama bear of the ladies’ group, to both Americans and Koreans! She was also a shameless back seat driver when I drove us around in my old car “Mabel”. I too look forward to seeing her again in heaven one day!
Dianna Riffle left a message on June 7, 2022:
Debbie and I met in Japan and became fast friends. She had a passion for quilting that was catching and, before I knew it, she taught me to quilt. Just recently, I picked up a project we were doing together in Japan called Miniature Magic. It had tiny blocks to teach us how to be precise. In those moments of us selecting fabrics and sewing, we shared our lives. I enjoyed being with her, listening to her laugh, and attribute my love of quilting to Debbie. Outside of quilting, we traveled and shared holidays together. She made us laugh often with her quick quips. I especially loved her one-liners like “hold your pose”. I will always treasure our friendship and look forward to seeing her again someday. Love you friend!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I did not have the pleasure of meeting this amazing woman, I read about, but would have loved to know her personally. Instead I do have the pleasure of meeting her son “Baker” who was raised by such a beautiful soul, and obviously show the values and morals bestowed in him. My thoughts and prayers are with my friend and his family through their loss. May the good Lord provide you with his presence and comfort. God bless you all ♥️

Thinking of Wayne, Courtney, Baker, Brandon, and all those that loved Debbie. Debbie was a beautiful soul and blessed so many of us during her life. Our paths crossed when I was a young mother of a one year older living in a foreign country. Debbie became my second mom and my daughter called her Grammy. She and I were together nearly daily during this very special time in our lives. She was quick to calm my overly anxious tendencies raising my daughter. She taught me the ropes of living in Korea. She loved to sew my daughter many precious outfits. Eventually we ended up in the Fort Worth area and Debbie and Wayne followed. I had a second daughter and the two of them bestowed their love on both of our children. Debbie would come over Christmas morning before the kids woke up just to capture their expressions. Debbie was a gift to our family and our life in Korea and Fort Worth would not have been the same without her in it. We will miss Debbie (Grammy). We send our love.
