Debra was a dedicated employee of the Army and Air Force Exchange Service and served for 30 faithful years before retiring. She spent her retirement days, in her words, doing whatever she wanted because she was retired. She enjoyed spending time with her husband Tony and grand-daughter Brittany and her family. Debra was a woman of faith. She had one of the biggest hearts and would give the shirt off her back to help people in need. She had a great sense of humor, and a beautiful soul to match the beautiful woman she was.
