Debbie was a member of Calvary Baptist Church, Sulphur Springs, TX., and a former long-term member of Oldham Memorial Baptist Church of Muskogee.

A celebration of Debbie's life and the entrance into the arms of her Heavenly Father, will be held Saturday, March 19, 2011 at 10:30 A.M. at Calvary Baptist Church, 200 South R Street, with Reverends Tom Shelton, John Curtis Sr., and Glen Little officiating.  Pallbearers will be Robbie Stevenson, Johnny Jackson, Robbie Jackson, Donnie Echols, Wes Young and Julio Gloria.
