A eulogy reading and sharing of memories will immediately follow, led by Pastor Doug Knapp.
Debbie was born on October 22, 1961 to Arlyn Miller and Sally Bridgman. Debbie married her high school sweetheart, Doug March, on July 24, 1981. They shared a beautiful marriage and were deeply devoted to each other, their family, and God. The two shared a strong faith and spiritual life together, along with their children, and pastored together for seven years at New Life Christina Center where they enjoyed and loved sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This was one of the most amazing and important journeys that the two took together in their life.
Debbie was the glue that held her family together. She leaved behind her two daughters: Mindy March and Malissa (Steve) Patterson, and a son: Michael (Danielle) March. She also leaves behind her two special grand-daughters Kinsie March and Naomie Bailey; and five grandsons: Marcus Bailey, Elijah Bailey, Korian Bailey, Malaki March, and Kaleb March. Her parents, whom she loved and adored, Arlyn (Alice) Miller also survive. Her sister Tammy Bridgman and brother Brian Bridgman of Florida; sisters Dawn (Tommy) John and Keri Nohmer; and a brother Butch (Crystal) Nohmer; along with many aunts and uncles, numerous cousins; a special aunt Christy Hoskins who Debbie not only shared external beauty but a beautiful heart as well; and her longtime best friend and sister in Christ Twyla (Bill) Wadhams will miss her greatly.
Debbie and Doug vacationed in Gatlinburg, TN and it was easily her most favorite place in the world. She enjoyed the beauty of the mountains, the simplicity of the cabins, and visiting the antique shops and flea markets. She spent a lot of time with her youngest granddaughter Naomi, as the two enjoyed planting flowers and plants, and tending to them. It was a bond that they both treasured. Debbie adored music of all kinds, and she shared that love with her grandson Elijah. The two would often do reaction videos, and compose music together. Her large heart also extended to a love for animals and children-all children.
Debbie and her “bubby”, her only son Michael, were extremely close. She could even be referred to as a mother hen as she was extremely protective of him. The two would go on dates to Subway, their favorite lunchtime spot where he would treat his mom to lunch with the money he earned from his paper route. She was very proud of the man, husband, and father he had grown up to be. who Debbie greatly resembles and shares not only external beauty but beautiful hearts as well, will also greatly miss Debbie.
The family would like to sincerely thank the many people who stood together with them in prayer and faith over this journey we have been on the past year. This amazing group of believers that we have had the privilege of uniting with. A tremendous thank you will never be enough for Pastor Doug Knapp, who has been not only a spiritual mentor but also a friend and guide. Your faith and love has left a lasting impression on all of us. Bonnie and the Prayer Group at Assembly of God Church, and Pastor Archie Neal and his family, were a source of strength and love that we have cherished.
And to Debbie- our mom, our soulmate, our sister, cousin, aunt, and friend- what a blessing that God gave you to us. Strong in your faith in the Lord and full of compassion and love that will be a guide to us everyday. We will do the best we can to lead the remaining family to love and trust in God. Thank You for making our lives worth living, see you in Heaven soon, and together we will praise Jesus hallelujah!
Though Debbie was the glue that held us together, we will now stay strong and make her proud by remembering what she taught us; to put God first and lean on his tremendous strength. We will overcome and remain victorious because of Him.
