Debra (Carver) Bardsley

Debra (Carver) Bardsley, 67, passed away on April 8, 2021.  She was born in Topeka, Kansas to Charles Carver and Dolores LaMountain.  Debra attended Topeka Public Schools, graduating from Topeka High School in 1971.  Upon graduating, she went to work for the State of Kansas.  She retired after 45 years of continuous state service.

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.

Goodbye Dear Love…

  2. So sorry for the loss to the family. We have not kept in touch over the years but can still remember some of the early days . Condolences and prayers for your family

  3. Kendra and Jessie,

    I adored your mom and loved hearing her laugh. Seeing her when Kendra and I were in high school and then again when she and Phil would pick up Caden from elementary school was a blast since I got to see how she and Phil teased each other and still so much in love with each other.
    Her family was her world. You can see her living on through you and through the grandsons. I will miss seeing her at the store or just running into her and Phil around town. All my love during this difficult times and forever after.

  7. Kendra,, Jess, & families,
    I am so sorry to read about the passing of Debra. I remember the first time Kendra introduced me to her and Phil they were both so nice and loved to joke around, very welcoming, always friendly no matter how long it had been since we last saw one another. May you always treasure the memories you shared with her and find comfort in knowing her love for the Lord.
