February 26, 1959 – August 30, 2023

Beloved wife, mother, and friend, Debbie left this world to be with her many loved ones the morning of August 30, 2023.

Debbie was born to Harold and Thelma Mayo in Panama City, Florida. She was raised in the South for most her life until she enlisted in The United States Air Force in 1980. Debbie served her country in both the United States and overseas in The United Kingdom. She was stationed in Cheyenne, Wyoming where she met the love of her life, Ronald Van Dyne. They wed June 29, 1985, and just a few short years later started a family of their own. Over time Debbie and Ronald, opened their hearts to over 235 foster children, of which 5 they adopted. There wasn’t anything Debbie wouldn’t do for those she loved and cared for so deeply. She was a natural born nurturer, mother, and giver. Debbie’s pride and joy was her family.

She is preceded in death by her father, Harold; youngest son, Chance Van Dyne; and her youngest daughter, Skye Van Dyne. Debbie is survived in death by all those she loved and gave her heart to, including her beloved husband, Ronald; her four children: Kasondra Ford, Amber Muxfeldt, Louis Van Dyne, and Justus Van Dyne. Between her children she had 10 grandchildren that she absolutely adored.

    Deborah touched a lot of lives for varying amounts of time through fostering and adoption. Her warm and welcoming heart didn’t stop there–its reach extended to the friends of the children she took in as well. Deborah will be missed.

    Find your strength in each other

    I’m one of the 235 that Deborah and Ron brought into their home with loving arms! Deborah was an angel 😇 here on earth, sent by the Lord, to comfort each of us, when our own families could not! He has simply returned His angel to her eternal resting place. We 235 can never repay what Deborah and Ron did for us. I can’t wait to see her palace in heaven. 241 rooms. She’s awaiting your arrival Ron! I know you won’t let her down. You never did.
