Debra Jean Luis Obituary

Debra Jean Luis lost her battle with ALS on November 27, 2015. Debra was born on December 7, 1954, in Decorah Iowa. She lived in the Yuba Sutter area for 37 years, and worked as the Yuba County Animal Control Supervisor at the time of her diagnosis.

She was a wife, mother, grandmother, and teamster, who loved to quilt and play her guitar and banjo.

She dedicated her life to helping animals and gave that gift, and her love of music, to her children to carry on. Debra chose to use her diagnosis as an opportunity to bring forth awareness and inspired hundreds along that journey. She left us in the same manner that she lived; with grace and the utmost strength.

Debra is survived by her husband, Michael Luis; son, Michael Luis Jr.; daughter, Megan Luis; daughter and son-in-law, Allison and Justin Sutton; granddaughter, Melanie Luis; sisters, Sue Foster, Kris Holmes, Mikey Harchol, and mother-in-law, Zelma Luis.

She was preceded in death by her father, William Inman; mother, Arlene Inman, and father-in-law, Tony Luis.

A celebration of her life will be held on December 7, 2015 from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm (eulogy at 5:00 pm) at Whiteaker Hall, 102 2nd Street, Yuba City.
