    I loved seeing Debbie when I worked for Cox in the Papillion Walmart. She always brightened my day. She will always and forever have a special place in my heart. My deepest condolences go to Joe and the rest of her family and loved ones. May she forever rock out to the Beetles and dance with the animals in heaven 🥺💖.

    My deepest sympathy to Joe and his family. Deb, Joe and I worked together as operators back in the day. My last name was Carpenter back then. I believe it was called Unit 2 the day office. We had a lot of laughs back then. Again, prayers for your family..

    Joe, Melissa, and family, so sorry to hear of Debbie’s passing. I have many fond memories of growing up on Newport Ave. including playing board games in your family kitchen with Debbie ensuring we had snacks, putting together “shows” for the parents, watching movies- my very first viewing of Grease was at your house 🙂 playing Green Ghost and Johnnie Johnnie, riding bikes, and swimming in your pool. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

    Debbie was a much loved friend from the old Minne Lusa neighborhood on Newport Ave. in Omaha. She was always fun to be with. My deepest sympathy to the family.
