Debbie Ann Gardner was born on March 6, 1958 and was a beautiful person to her family, friends and wife. She lived an adventurous life at the Grand Canyon with her beloved partner Amy. Her mother Sharon, her father Lee and her nine siblings miss her very much. She passed away after a long battle with pancreatic cancer on Thursday, Feb. 4, 2010.

Debbie lived her life with principle, honesty, fairness, thoughtfulness, love and support for whoever needed it. She treated everyone equally and was open to everyone with such a loving heart that everyone felt so special. Her joy, laughter, great intellect, sense of humor, generosity, desire for adventure and kind spirit were an inspiration to so many lives. The experiences we all shared with Debbie made us the people that we are today. May Debbie's time in heaven be beautiful until we all meet again.
