Obituary of Deborah Sue Figgins

Alvordton - Deborah Sue Figgins (Wheeler) left this earth to continue her journey in the early morning on July 28th, 2022. The family got to talk with her prior to her passing. Alan was by her side as she transitioned.

Debbie and Ron were avid travelers. They loved camping and finding new destinations to check out.  Deb loved sending postcards from all of the places she visited. In the past, she was a 4-H horse advisor for the Rough Riders.

Debbie was a volunteer for the Alvordton Fire Department. She liked that she was able to give back to the community. She worked for Spangler Candy Company for many years before eventually retiring.

Her stepchildren, great grandchildren, great great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, great and great great nieces and nephews meant the world to her. They always looked forward to her blankets, Christmas cookies and ornaments, and other homemade gifts. She tried to see that every new baby born into the family, and every child that graduated high school, had a handmade blanket from her.

Debbie loved to tell stories from the past and spend time with family. She was a remarkable woman that may be gone, but never forgotten. 

She is preceded in death by her husband, Ronald Figgins. Her Dad, James Wheeler, and her Mom, Helen Wheeler.  Debbie was a stepmom to Angel Alvarez, Laura and Tony Gomez, Greg Figgins, and  Raymond and Marsha Figgins.
