She graduated from Crestview High School in 1971 and from there went to cosmetology school. Life brought her to Kansas City where she raised her 4 children and pursued her Associates Degree. Through the years, she worked at Blue Valley North High School, helped open Harrah’s Casino in North Kansas City, worked the football games at Notre Dame, and American Family Insurance.
Debra treasured all her friendships from her many walks of life. She cherished the birthdays with each grandchild by spoiling them for an entire day. She was always well put together and people always mentioned her newest nail design for the holidays. She was a woman of faith and with that felt gratitude for all of life’s blessings. Her positivity, spirit and love of life are inspiring.
