Debra Marie Coates

October 26, 1963 — April 28, 2024

In loving memory of Debbie, a fountain of kindness and joy. Her selflessness and boundless love touched all who knew her. With a heart for crafting, cooking and candy-making, she spread happiness effortlessly. Her love for her children, grandchildren, beloved kitty Socks and her dear fiancé, Kevin, knew no bounds. A true hippie at heart, she danced through life with a spirit as free as the wind. In her time at Kroger, Debbie found joy in her work and cherished her coworkers dearly. Though she's gone, her legacy of love lives on in our hearts forever.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Donald and Elizabeth Hill and brothers, Dennis and Danny Hill.

Debbie leaves to cherish her memories, her children, Amber Coates and Bill Coates; grandchildren, Christopher, Damien, Brielle, Aubriana, Leigha, Matthew, Jr. and Valerie; sisters, Donna Hill and Dawn Hill; fiancé, Kevin Kerch; bonus children, Bobby Miller, Wesley Miller and Amie Kerch-Boggs and sister-in-law, Lisa Hill.
