Tim, Ashley,Uriah and family- Tim and Deb were friends with my parents and came to visit often. Ashley would play with Kelly and Brian, and I would babysit you all so ours moms could go to rock concerts, warrant, AC/DC, Tesla are just a few. I was pry 12 and you there were like 5 ish!

Dear Tim and family, so sorry for your loss. Praying for you at this time of sorrow. Cari (Larsen) Haun
Our deepest sympathies from the Class of 1983.
My condolences to the family. I worked with Deb H. for over 1 year. She was a great, hard worker. She will be truly missed.
Deb was my supervisor when I worked for Mid-America from 2016-2017. I wished I could've made it to the service this afternoon, but the weather kept me from traveling. She was always be remembered to me as one of my favorite supervisors. Though work was hard during the busy days/seasons, we all used humor to get through it. I'll always appreciate Deb's leadership skills, and how she took interest with the people she worked with. I'm honored to have known her, to work beside her, and to have her as my supervisor and friend.
Dear Uriah and family, deepest condolences on Debbie's passing from the Iowa Pheasants & Quail Forever Family, during these difficult times know your PF/QF Family has you and your family in out thoughts and prayers. God Bless.
Mike Schmitz - Iowa PF/QF President
Dear Tim, Uriah and Ashley,
My sincere condolences and I pray for peace and comfort for you.
Dear Tim, Uriah and Ashley, I am really sorry for your loss. I have not seen Deb since she was 14 and was so sad to learn of her early death. She had the best laugh of anyone I've ever known. Deb could turn from pure joy to being filled with unwieldy teenage angst in a moment. I'm so happy she had such a wonderful family. So sad we've lost her... Page Gleisner Gough

Love Deb Myers Swope
