Debbie Lynn (Eastman) Reed
April 22, 1962 - February 21, 2021
Puyallup, Washington - Debbie Lynn Eastman Reed, Holiday Enthusiast, Leaves this World a Better Place.
Debbie came into this world on Easter Sunday, April 22nd, 1962, and left us on the less conventional holiday of National Sticky Bun Day, February 21, 2021. Debbie created a family with her husband Don Reed, and their cherished sons, Tommy and Eric. She loved to read, meet her neighbors at her annual garage sale, Buy Nothing, and listen to music. A brain tumor took her from us, but she met Death at home, where she was delighted to be with her family, and mustering a fair bit of Cheer. Debbie is preceded by her dad, Tom Eastman of Puyallup, and sister-in-law Wanda Cooney of Bonnie lake. She remains in the hearts and minds of those whose lives she touched: husband Don Reed, sons Tommy Reed and Eric Reed, mom Lin Eastman, sisters Kris Apple (Kenneth and sons, Sean and Cormac) and Lisa Libby (Richard, and son Alex,) and brother Paul Eastman (Carrie and daughters Taylor and MacKenzie.) Debbie was dear to her in-laws, Emma-Lou and Allen Reed, Brothers-in-law Pat Cooney (S/D Travis, Elizabeth,) Ace Sanders(Kimi and D- Lynn,) and Delbert Reed (Marie and son Cooper) and she enjoyed the many "grands" that came with her chosen family Reed.

We met in college, and friends ever since. I remember driving to college, singing "Moving Right Along" from the Muppet Move. She was light, fun and love. All our love to her family and all she left behind.

I first met Debbie in the blueberry fields of Puyallup when I was 13 years old. That day in the blueberry fields was just the beginning of an endless stream of beautiful memories. I remember the Apple family eating blueberry muffins for Sunday morning breakfast at the Eastman home. I remember when Lisa and I drove to Western Washington University on a Friday evening sometime during high school to visit Ken, Kris and Debbie for the weekend. It was raining so hard on our way there, we couldn't see two feet in front of us. When I think of Debbie, it's impossible not to think about Don at the Apple family Thanksgiving table almost every year when I was younger. These are memories very close to my heart. When I moved back to Sumner several years ago, I donated a garage full of stuff to Don and Debbie's yearly garage sale. I remember Debbie sitting in my garage when her and Don came to pick up the stuff; I have a still frame of her, to this day, in my mind. She talked about how she could donate things to people who needed it. Debbie was a kind person who always cared about people. When I think about Debbie, I think about good childhood memories and how friends and families can come together for a lifetime.

The oldest Apple sister
