Benning, GA, Slidell, LA and Smyrna, GA. Debbie's top priority was being a devout Christian who deeply loved her family and extended family and was a loving homemaker. She also enjoyed gardening, and bird watching. She had many interests which included crafts like quilting, painting, and cross stitch. She was an avid collector of antiques and artwork.
