Deborah Ann (Bourne) "Debbie" Branthoover was born on December 28th,1954, and passed away on April 27th, 2022.
Debbie was raised in White Settlement, Texas, and spent most of her life living in her hometown. She graduated from Brewer High School in 1973.
Debbie was married for 24 years to her husband Stephen Branthoover. She had one son, Christopher Duggins, and one sister, Kathy Scheebel. She loved her family and friends and was loved by all.
In Debbie, God found another angel. Debbie was a very unique individual. She was full of love for those that she cared for, no matter how long or why she knew them. She had one biological sister, but many sisters and brothers in love as well as many adopted children in love. She was always willing to help anyone needing her and was the first to check in on you when you were having trouble, whether it was health, personal or financial. She was so full of knowledge and would share it if you asked. Sometimes she would say “I don’t know why I know that…I just do.” Never would a holiday or birthday pass, that she didn’t send good wishes for that special day. She absolutely loved her husband, Stephen, and he loved her from the very first moment that she met him…they just “clicked.” We were so excited to see her loved, to see her happy - she deserved it. Her dogs were very important to her even if they happen to be a bit on the rough side (Buddy actually caused her to break her arm and caused some of us to bleed “accidentally," by being so big and playing so rough), and many of her friends would be fair game to him. Then came Pistol. She loved that dog and Pistol loved her. She finally had a safe puppy that didn’t “accidentally“ cause injuries to Debbie or to her friends. She loved her music, especially Tom Petty's ”It’s Good to be King,” and Pink Floyd’s “Shine On You Crazy Diamond.” Her other favorites were Kid Rock, Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles, as well as many other Rock bands. You could drop by her house anytime and she would have the TV playing some old rock concert. She was a music lover for sure. Debbie was a good cook, just ask Stephen. He said that’s why he gained so much weight, lol! She loved her Daddy and her Mama. They were there at heaven’s gate to meet her. Her brother, Michael, was her favorite person in the world and she missed him terribly, ever since the day that he passed away, so surely their reunion in heaven was beautiful. Debbie will be missed by so many, was such a special person, and shall always have a place in our hearts. Until we see each other again “keep the heavenly party going.” You shall never be forgotten. ✌️

But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit. Jeremiah 17:7-8
