Deborah J. "Debbie" Freeman, 53, of Delaware, died suddenly Saturday morning (Dec. 29, 2012) from injuries sustained in an automobile accident, which occurred on Old State Road, south of Lewis Center Road.
She was born in Ithaca, N.Y., on July 20, 1959, to Wilfred and Virginia (Winn) Freeman. She lived the majority of her life in California before moving back to Delaware in 2010. A lifelong number cruncher, she worked as a bookkeeper and was currently in the payroll department of Sarcom. Very active in the Delaware Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Debbie lived a God-centered life. She was a member of the Cookie Club at church and assisted the church in numerous ways with her homemaking skills of sewing and planting. She also volunteered countless hours to the Delaware Common Ground Free Store.
Lively and energetic, she shared her infectious laugh. She was a ray of light, whose smile would light up any room. Intrigued with apples, she collected them in various forms.
A strong and independent mother she proudly raised her boys without help. Always selfless, she was not afraid to speak her mind. Debbie will be remembered for her loving ways and generous spirit.
Those left to cherish her memory include her parents; her sons, Philip "Ben" Anderson of Houston and Tim Anderson of Columbus; and her siblings, Ginny, George, Charlie, John, Laurie and Jeep.
Memorial services will be held at 7 p.m. Friday at The Delaware Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 15 Rock Creek Drive, Delaware, with Bishop Kevin Johnson officiating. Her family will greet friends following the services.
Memorial contributions can be made to the Common Ground Free Store Ministries, 193 E. Central Ave., Delaware, OH 43015.
