A special thank you to Melissa Ruebusch and her family for watching over Devin and Cheyenne in their hour of need . There are too many of you to thank by name but you know who you are.
Debbie worked in several positions throughout the Reno/Sparks area but was famous for her own day-care center that she owned and operated for many years. She was highly social and could smile in her darkest hour. Her mantra "Don't forget to smile" will echo in our hearts forever.
In Lieu of flowers please forward donations to the Community Chest in Virginia City, NV.
A celebration of life is scheduled for Wednesday, February 20th at 3:00pm at the Sparks Christian Fellowship off of Greenbrae with respite to follow at her father's home in Sparks. The address will be given after the services. May peace with you, Debbie.
