Deborah was a sweet, gentle, caring, and loving mother and grandmother who trusted in the Lord with all her heart. Deborah was raised in Elkhart, Indiana and held the town and its people in tender regard. She was proud to be a member of Pioneer Faith Ministries in Elkhart and was thrilled for her son, Tim, for adhering to God’s calling to become a pastor and to form the church in the town she always called home. She had friends and acquaintances in near and far and will be missed dearly by many. Deborah loved her family and was able to spend her last days laughing and hugging her grandchildren; producing new memories for them to hold onto. She and Tim had gone through many hardships in their life but by the grace of God, they were able to overcome their hardships together. Even though her body experienced the pain and struggles of this life, Deborah had fought the good fight and had finished the race because she kept the faith in her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
