I met Deborah at the Rotary Club in Del Rio. Since I joined the Club, she was always so endearing to my husband Art & I. She was so knowledgeable about the Rotary Club organization and I always appreciate her sharing her wealth of knowledge with various subjects. May she rest in peace with Barney and in the arms of our good Lord.

Babysitting Deborah and Donna was one of my first jobs. We had some great times. I was so proud to watch them grow and be successful in life. I’m glad Deborah returned to West Texas to spend her last days. Now she can reunite with Barney and her parents. Fly high, dear Deborah! You were one of the good ones.
