Debra worked as an accounting specialist at Goodwill of West Texas since 2014, and part time for Terry Browder Sayles Ranch Guesthouses. Prior to that she worked at PepsiTexas for 19 years and part-time at Dillard's for 8 years.
Deb was the ultimate fashionista and loved accessorizing as evidenced by her large collection of watches, shoes, and purses. Everything had to match head to toe. She loved finding a bargain. Her sense of humor was top notch and she could turn anything into a joke.
She was a devoted mother to her daughter Tina. She was also an avid Green Bay Packer fan but couldn't watch the games because she would get too anxious. She loved being with her family.
