She was born Aug. 30, 1958, to Robert “Bob” and Winifred English in Enterprise. She was the fifth of nine children.

Debra enjoyed spending time in the mountains, camping, mushrooming and berry picking as well as rock collecting. She always said her greatest accomplishments were her six children, and she was proud of each of them.

She was blessed with 10 grandchildren but called them her great-grandkids because they are all so great.

In her final days she wished for everyone who was a part of her life to know how blessed she was and that her life was so much richer because of the love she was shown.

Debra is survived by the father of her six children Pete Haney, of Heppner, Ore.; her children Andrea Haney of Joseph.

She is also survived by her grandchildren: Caleb, Aaron, Zachary and Andrew Beal, Lilla Parsons, Kylan and Kameron Haney, Peyton Haney, Tyson Boutdavong and Alexia and Emalee Wolfe.

She is also survived by two brothers, Tom Wilson and David English, and five sisters: Loraine Tillery, Corine Haga, Sandra English, Robin Johnson and Kimberly Varner.

Debra was preceeded in death by her father Robert “Bob” English, her mother Winifred English, her sister Janice Kepler, two nephews, Brandon Varner and Gavyn Owings, as well as her dear friend Johnnie Renfroe.

The family wishes to extend gratitude to Dr. Rusty Woods, Winding Waters Clinic, and Wallowa Memorial Hospital for their compassion and support during this difficult time.

A special thank you to Marshall Cox and Debbie Turkington whose love for their mother is as deep an any of her own children.
