Debra had a pure and selfless heart and she would do anything for those that needed her help, she would always remind us to be respectful and to treat others as you would want to be treated, but to not take any bull off anyone! Debra was a reliable leader. She was blessed with incredible strength and knowledge. She was full of wisdom and had no problem telling anyone exactly how it is. Debra was a Respected Mother, Big Sister, one of a kind NaNa, a Loyal Friend and an Amazing Bartender. She was known as “TAZZZ” for her one-of-a-kind wild, crazy and fun personality.
