Debra Lee HelmsAugust 4, 1953 ~ June 7, 2017 (age 63)
Deb passed away Wednesday June 7, 2017 at the age of 63 after an unfortunate short battle with cancer.
Deb is survived by her six children: Richard, Jason, Dustin, Skeeter, Cody and Megan and her eleven grandchildren.
From a young age Deb was strong willed with an open and giving heart. She loved the outdoors. Every chance she had was spending outside tending to her garden and yard where she found serenity and relaxation. Playing with the grandkids and teaching them what she had loved about being there. It was a place where she would lose track of time because she enjoyed the peacefulness that filled her when she was out there.
She was known for welcoming individuals into her life and helped others at every turn even when she may not have been able to afford so. She helped raise more than just her own children; she was loved by many of their friends and sought her out for her guidance and wiliness to treat them as one of her own. This led to her becoming a caregiver later in life. It was a profession that became a perfect combination with her natural abilities to want to take care of others and help others in their time of need.
She will be remembered for her smiles, amazing humor, smart wit, and her genuine loving heart.
