She will fondly be remembered in the Selma community as a lady that never met a stranger. Always sharing a smile and had kind words to say. She had a love for her Lord and also her precious fur babies. Deborah will be missed by all that knew and loved her.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the caregivers and neighbors of Deborah that provided companionship to her over the last few years, Sallie Howard, Rena Nail, and Melba Roberts.

She is survived by her siblings, Tony Cooper (Jennifer), Willie Cooper (Alicia), and Tanya McCall (Billy); numerous nieces and nephews; and her life-long friend, Nancy Siau.

She is preceded in death by her parents; brother, Terry Kirton; and fur babies, Luke, Max, Lady Benton, Snickers, and Oreo.
