Debbie was an energetic firecracker of a woman, admired and loved by all who knew her.
She attended First Baptist Church in Houma, was a league bowler on Tuesday mornings and Friday nights and volunteered at the Chauvin Senior Citizen's Center in Chauvin. She loved bowling, fishing, gardening, in-depth conversations with God while manning her lawn mower, spending time with her family and red Corvettes.
Though her spark has dimmed, the glowing ember of her life will continue to warm our hearts as she is thought of and missed.
Chauvin Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
