Debbie left her job in April 2019 because of her illness, after having worked at the Washington County Sheriffs Department / Jail as head cook for 23 yearss. Debbie always said it wasn’t a job for everyone but it was a job she loved and wanted to make it to 25 years so she could retire and spend more time with her family and grandsons. She had also worked at Woolworth’s and the Betsey Mills Club dining room as a cook. She enjoyed enduro racing “007” where she took home many first place trophies. She also loved to play “penny keno”. But, anyone who has known her knows how much she enjoyed her grandkids “the boys” they were the light of her life next to her daughters.
She is preceded in death by her dad, Tom Grahame; her brother, Mike Grahame; and her two special dogs, Rocks & Aspie.
Funeral service will be held 6:30 pm Monday October 12 at McClure-Schafer-Lankford Funeral Home with Pastor David Beaver officiating.
