She was called “Grandma” by many in Amador County and loved by everybody. She helped several people. Raised her grandchildren and took many children to raise. She would help anyone in need if she could. She was a soldier and cared about all things and others. She would give the shirt off her back if she had too. Her words of wisdom and encouragement always made sense and gave people hope. And always looked for the good in people.

She fought her illness for years and always said she was going to live forever. She suffered a heart attack and strokes and had heart surgery and survived. Her body was tired she had severe health issues and suffered a lot of pain in the end. Now she is not suffering anymore, and she is truly going to live forever in Heaven. Where she can rest peacefully.

On behalf of our family, we would like to thank those of you who were able to donate to her fundraiser it is greatly appreciated. As we lay our loved one to enter to rest for eternity. She will be missed.

    Dolores LeDesma is my name and I worked with Miss Debbie for many years at the county where she was mother to all she loved. We had a special bond, when the song "Girls just want to have fun" came on the radio we would dance around the front office laughing and singing. It was our thing. Once Debbie retired I never danced again to that song but would smile thinking about how much fun we had. Love you Deb and God's speed to you and the love ones who are waiting for you in heaven.
