Prior to the onset of cancer, Debbie had been a dedicated and longtime employee at the Jimmie Davis Highway Animal Hospital in Bossier City. She was also very supportive of her grandchildren in all their sports, gymnastic, cheering, dance and school activities. Debbie also attended Simple Church. She graciously opened her home to many family and holiday related events and was a wonderful hostess and cook…..especially desserts. She leaves behind a great legacy and many precious memories for all her family and friends who will greatly miss her.
The family would like to extend their deepest appreciation and gratitude to Leslie LaCour with St. Joseph Hospice, the Staff and Physicians at Willis Knighton Medical Center and a special thank you to Dr. Jessica Wilden.
