DEBORAH JANE GIBBONS FORTUNE was born on June 13, and died at her home in The Woodlands on November 9, 2007. She is survived by her children, Jennie, Josh, Katie, stepchildren Beth and Tara, and seven grandchildren: Pete, Jhett, Jonas, Alexander, Cynthia, Jennifer and Christopher. Deb was 59, and gave life and love to all those around her. She trusted that the Lord would put her where she was meant to be, and this wisdom lifted her into His arms, out of pain, and with her family in Heaven. Our family will keep her in our hearts forever, and carry on the love which she gave to us. She was a wonderful mother and she will be missed deeply. We love you, Mom, and know you are resting with Pa-Pa. The world is a better place having had you in it. Memorial services will be held on Tuesday, 11/20 at 2 PM at Fellowship of the Woodlands church, One Fellowship Dr, The Woodlands.
