  1. Debra was so much fun to be around. Never a quiet moment when she’s with you. I remember several years ago, she came to our house, knocked on the door and when answered the door,she asked if my husband CW, could go out partying with her because she needed a dance partner. I laughed and sure. They went out and had a good time. She told me thanks, I told her sure anytime. They went dancing a few other times, we would laugh and laugh. Not many women on earth I would have trusted my husband with
    Deb was so honest so loving and had a heart of gold. We will miss her. Rest in peace precious angel. You will always be in our hearts.

    CW and Helen Jahn

  5. I am so sorry for the loss of your dear Debra. May you all find comfort in knowing that she now rests, awaiting the day “all” in the grave are called to “come out.” (John 5:28, 29; 11:11, 43) Until that time, know too that you have been invited by our Creator, Jehovah God, to “throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7; Psalm 83:18) I hope you all take care and please accept my sincerest condolences. (

  6. Debbie always reminded me how fun life really can be. That infectious smile and laugh has been with me for decades… I condolences for her family and closest friends.

  8. Love you Aunt Debbie. Thank you for giving us so many fun times. I will never forget our John boat rides and your great laugh. Miss you.

  9. I am very sorry to read of the passing of Debbie. I knew her from the roaring 90’s on Lake Conroe. Especially the Fleet 407 Ides of March regattas. We never knew what the WX would bring. One year a beautiful 70 degree day with steady winds 10 to 15 and the next year a blowing gale and Debbie’s Hobie 16 on the dam. Banana Bay took it’s name from the yellow hull of that boat. It hung over the entrance in all it’s glory marking those great weekends had by all thanks to Debbie’s organizational skills. She was a beautiful person. The world is missing a angel on earth, now that she’s in Heaven. I am very glad I got to know her in this short time we have in this life.
