husbands, Rhonda Avila (Sonny) and Kinsa Billings (Jesse). Debbie is preceded in death by her
February 20th 1979 Debbie married the love of her life (and her alter ego Suzie’s mortal enemy)
Edward Leroux. They proceeded to have 3 children, Richard Leroux (Teresa), Cami Mathews
(Donnie) and Rachel Pantier (Josh). Their children then blessed them with 15 grandchildren and
are working on 8 great-grandchildren.
Christian, Dale, Jasmine, Leann, Lily, Rhiannon, Shayla, Jason, Raven, Megan, Dylan,
Christopher, Andruw, Kilah, and Korbin.
Debbie has a large extended family of multiple nieces, nephews, cousins and unrelated friends
who were very important to her and held a piece of her heart.
Debbie spent most of her time keeping Ed out of trouble, while Suzie on the other hand, didn't
really care as long as she was not inconvenienced with his shenanigans. In her free time she
was enjoying time with family and friends. Debbie enjoyed camping, reading, and fantasy
football and on game days she co-coached the Broncos loudly from her couch. Debbie came by
her conversational ability honestly, and passed the gift of gab along to her daughters. It was not
uncommon to have phone calls with her that lasted for hours, often delaying dinner for Ed and
their pups but Suzie didn’t give a shit. Debbie had so much real love that she showed her family
and friends without limit. She poured so much time and dedication into her kids and was
determined to make sure her family was taken care of.
Many men are and will suffer what I am feeling. God has taken half of my soul. I have been
sorley blessed. I was one of the lucky few that married a woman that loved me unconditionally.
That is the only way two people stay together through the sins and offenses of the other.
She has always been a child of God. On loan to me. I just hoped it would be for a while longer,
a long while. I wish that I had honored her more fully in life. Her smile, green eyes and love for
all are what will be what I miss the most. She was a staunch advocate for those that needed
advocacy. She could give you the LOOK meaning you have overstepped your bounds. Anyone
that suffered that glare understood immediately that they were in territory beyond their abilities.
Deb I will never stop loving you, or missing you. I will not be foolish. I will be here for our kids,
their babies and their babies’ babies for as long as God will allow, I promise, amen.
