    Oh my dear friend…you have left so many of us with a heavy heart. You and i sure had some incredible adventures together because you were “Debbie the Explorer” without the backpack! So many great stories of work, travel, family, lakeside adventures and more. Polar opposites but we had a great ying and yang. You were so so proud of your boys and i know how much you loved that man (Mark). They may need a little help and guidance getting through this. I will surely miss you….gone but never forgotten. Love you and yours.

    My thoughts and prayers go to the family. I worked with Debbie for a brief time but will always remember her contagious smile and positive attitude. Always willing to help and answer my numerous questions. She brightened many of my days through our conversations.

  • Susie Enholm Perkins Posted September 20, 2018 7:53 pm

    Love and prayers to all the Omaha Enholms from your California aunt. Debbie was such a special person. Her positive, outgoing and loving self made her a joy to be with. Devoted to her family but still interested in how others are, unpretentious, real, compassionate. When you talked to her she gave you her full attention. May each of you feel God’s presence in this time of grief. The ache does lessen and the cherished memories do not fade..

    Debbie was always a bright light, and she will be missed.

    Dale and Brenda, I’m so sorry for your loss. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

  • Yona Dietz Posted September 22, 2018 8:00 pm

    Debbie you will be missed by so many Family, Friends and the many customers that you have touched with your help and guidance thru the years. My heart is heavy for the grief that your husband feels to have lost such a great partner so early. We can never really prepare for the inevitable, but God taking you so young and so suddenly makes the lost that much harder. My prayers are with Mark and your boys and Grandchildren. We know you are at peace and find comfort in that fact . The tough part is living without you in our lives. The one piece of Scripture that has brought me through tough times is:
    Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5
    It really is too hard to understand the questions we ask God right now. We truly must trust Him.

  • Mark Wilkinson Posted September 23, 2018 10:39 am

    My condolences to Mark and the family. I had the honor to work with Debbie at Roman Inc. for many years. Debbie was always smiling and positive. She was a compassionate and caring person. Anyone that met her would always like her. There will be a void left that will be difficult to fill.

  • Mark Enholm Posted September 23, 2018 11:26 am

    To all who have sent a message to this site, I want to say THANK YOU. Being married to Debbie for more than 43 years was a true blessing and I can say in all that time, I never saw that Lady ever frown. She is and will be missed forever.
