Aug. 3, 1957 - Nov. 12, 2021 Debbie Morgan, a long time resident of Fairbanks, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly due to Covid complications. Her best friend and youngest daughter were by her side in her final moments. Debbie was born in Santa Monica, California, and raised in Catawba, North Carolina, where she graduated from Bandys High School in 1975. Debbie enlisted into the United States Air Force in July 1976 and was a strategic aircraft maintenance technician until her departure in 1991. Her military career was one of the highlights of her adult life as she joined out of love for country, the belief in freedom, and the pursuit of happiness. She considered the Constitution of the United States to be the most important document ever written and she was sworn to protect it and the people it represents. Her strong knowledge, passion, love for America and its history left her unrivaled in many debates on the topic. Debbie's military career brought her to her forever home of Fairbanks, Alaska, in 1983. Immediately, she fell in love with its natural beauty, towering mountains and landscapes that could go on for miles without modern structures to ruin the views. Debbie was a mother, grandmother, entrepreneur, pioneer and an active member of the Golden Heart Shootist Society under the alias "Desperado Rose." Debbie enjoyed the outdoors in the summer as much as every other Alaskan; she split and stacked wood in preparation for winter and had big plans for an enormous garden in the upcoming summer months. Her idea of the perfect life was to be able to live off of the land as the earliest settlers of Fairbanks before her did. Debbie worked for the Fairbanks North Star Borough Metropolitan Area Commuter System as a bus driver since May 2007. She often spoke highly of her coworkers, passengers and the conversations she was able to have with them. Debbie was preceded in death by her father, Glenn Morgan, and brother, David Morgan. Debbie is survived by her mother, Bonnie Morgan; sisters, Doris and Denise Morgan; daughters, Julie Campbell and Jennifer Connell; grandchildren, Julian, Joseph, Michael, Maverick and Phoenix; her best friend, Tina Troup; and countless amounts of friends and coworkers throughout the years. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 5, at Blanchard Family Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers her family asks that donations be made to the Fairbanks Food Bank, a charity she wholeheartedly believed in and loved.
To offer your sympathy during this difficult time, you can now have memorial trees planted in a National Forest in memory of your loved one.

Mom, I will carry the torch of truth from here. You are loved immensely and immeasurably. I am so fortunate to have been raised by a strong fighter who showed me that even in our darkest moments we must push forward in our lives in honor of those lost. You were my beacon of light and a warrior of truth. Thank you for all that you instilled into me from birth to today. While you may have departed from the earth, your spirit remains eternal. I love you.
