Deborah Lucille Barton Reinach, 61, passed away on February 16, 2017 in her home.

Debbie was the cherished wife of Richard Frank Reinach of New Orleans, LA for 40 years, and leaves children Robert Jeremy Harwood of Bunkie, LA, Deborah Rickie Reinach of Memphis, TN and Rockie Bette Reinach of Memphis, TN. She was preceded in death by Bette Bell Berthoux Redditt of Monroe, LA (mother), Ted Howard Barton of New Orleans, LA (father), Laurie Barton Keith of Lake Charles, LA (younger sister) and Linda Barton Bergeron of New Orleans, LA (beloved aunt).

Debbie graduated from Lee High in Baton Rouge, LA in 1973. After surviving both breast and ovarian cancers, she dedicated her life to becoming an advocate for those battling cancer. She worked with many charities, including Madonna Learning Center, and was always the first to offer a helping hand, sage advice or bowl of étouffée to others during times of need.

She loved gardening and pursued that passion by graduating from the Master Gardener program and volunteering her talents in many gardens around Midtown. Debbie's love and fierce pride for her family, friends and community will live on through her memory -- especially her indomitable spirit, inspiring words and caring smile.

A celebration of her life will be held from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, February 23 at Canale Funeral Directors, 2700 Union Avenue Ext., Memphis, TN 38112.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials be sent to Madonna Learning Center.
