Elliott, Deborah Dunlap Of Boulder died on October 29, 2012, in Denver, Colorado, following a long battle with leukemia. She was born January 3, 1938, to Lawrence Bettis Dunlap and Beulah McGhee Dunlap in Dallas, Texas. She resided briefly in Jamestown, Rhode Island, and in San Diego, California, during her father's assignments with the US Navy during World War II. She attended public schools in Dallas and graduated from Highland Park High school in 1955. She received the Bachelor of Science degree in Home Economics (Child Development) from the University of Texas at Austin in 1959, and was employed as a teacher at the University Nursery School in Austin following graduation. She worked briefly as an Orthodontist's Assistant in Dallas. On June 13, 1959, she married Stephen Clay Elliott of Dallas. Debbie and Clay honeymooned in Boulder, and fell in love with Colorado. They returned to live in the Boulder area in 1984. Debbie was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority and a sustainer of the Junior League of Denver. She served on the board of directors of Meals on Wheels of Boulder, in addition to volunteering as a driver, delivering meals to those in need. Her commitment to service and her generosity of spirit touched all who knew her. Deeply feeling, compassionate and perceptive, her greatest passion was her family and close friends. She is survived by her husband; two sons, Andrew Clay Elliott (Kelly) of Covington, LA, and Hugh Robert Elliott (Cole Kazdin), of Los Angeles, CA; grandsons Henry Clay Elliott, Andrew Harrison Elliott, and Patrick McGhee Elliott, all of Covington; sisters Patricia MacGregor (Sandy) and Cecilia Johnsen (Howard) both of Dallas, TX; four nieces and one nephew.
