Debra met the love of her life, Phil Bardsley, at age 13. They married at age 20 and enjoyed 47 years together. They were blessed with two beautiful daughters and son-in-laws, Jessica (Greg) and Kendra (Ron), and two amazing grandsons, Caden and Justin. She loved them all greatly, especially her grandsons. They brought so much joy to her. Debra and Phil were known as Mo and Po to them.
Debra enjoyed the holidays and loved being with the family. One of the family events she put together was family bingo night. Everyone had so much fun at bingo nights.
Debra was so thoughtful and kind to all her family and friends. She cherished each and every one of them.
In addition to her immediate family, she leaves behind her mother, Dolores LaMountain; sister Karen (John); brothers Brad (Charlene) and Rick (Becky); and aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, cousins, friends and neighbors. She was loved and respected by everyone who knew her.
Debra is with her Lord and Savior now and no longer in pain. We will miss her and her laughter until one glad day when we shall meet again in Heaven.
