February 14, 1951 - November 7, 2012
Ann went into the arms of her loving Savior on November 7, surrounded by her family in Portland, Oregon. A devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, Ann enjoyed life’s simple pleasures most of all. Watching her grandchildren play or catching a bigger fish than her husband would bring a smile to her face that was contageous. Despite the challenges life threw in her path, her faith and love were unwavering.
A Valentine’s Day gift to her mother, Ann was born on February 14, 1951, the third of five children. She attended school in Klamath County, graduating from Merrill High School in 1969. Shortly after graduation, she married her high school sweetheart, Dale Deboy, recently returned from the Vietnam War. They were stationed at the Presidio for the remainder of Dale’s military service, then started a family and raised a daughter and two sons in western and southern Oregon. Their children gave them eight wonderful grandchildren, all of whom Ann adored. Ann is survived by her husband, Dale, her son, Scott, her daughter, Christine, her son, Sean, and eight grandchildren. She is also survived by her four brothers, Kirk, Robert, Dirk, and Lance.
“Those who have shown us love, brought us joy, and made us laugh have given us the lasting gift of sweet memories to hold in our hearts forever.”
Ann will be missed by all that knew and loved her.
There will be a celebration of Ann’s life at Trail Christian Fellowship in Eagle Point, OR, December 8, 2012 at 2pm.
