Deborah Dianne Parks

d. December 16, 2022

Deborah Dianne Parks was born on May 30, 1961 in Meridian, Mississippi. Debbie grew up in Meridian, and then resided in Brandon, Starkville, West Point, and Austin, Texas, before moving to Fairhope, Alabama, where she passed away on December 16, 2022, after a battle with cancer. She was surrounded by family in the end. Debbie enjoyed many years growing a career in retail, where she developed her wonderful gift of gab, and where she cultivated many friendships with people from all walks of life. Ultimately, Debbie parlayed this inquisitive, enthusiastic spirit of helpful conversationalist into insurance consulting, where she spent the later days of her career. Debbie loved Ole Miss, especially Ole Miss football, and you could count on Debbie always demonstrating team spirit on game days by wearing red and blue. She kept current with all of the latest news regarding Ole Miss, and she was always happy to discuss any topics—from coaching, to recruiting, to play calling, or even officiating. Debbie was die-hard red and blue until the end. Debbie also enjoyed politics. She read a great deal, consuming periodicals, websites, and opinion, and she developed allegiances and an informed worldview. Debbie enjoyed discussing current events with anybody. Again, Debbie kept her finger on the pulse of life, and there was little taking place around her that Debbie hadn’t discovered, internalized, and developed opinions about, discussing with friends and family. One of her favorite activities was discussing politics at Thanksgiving and other family holiday gatherings. Debbie cherished family. She was always the first to reach out with text messages or calls to wish happy birthday or Merry Christmas, until the very last week of her life. It was actually this absence of contact, the sudden silence from Debbie, that alerted family to a change in her condition. Debbie stayed connected to her family members and friends, no matter how scattered they were from her geographically, and she always maintained awareness of their latest events and achievements. Debbie would do anything for any one of her family members. Perhaps Debbie’s happiest discovery later in life was her daughter, Michelle Evans Giles, and her husband Eric, and meeting her granddaughters, Sophia Marie and Chloe Elise. They survive Debbie in Waynesboro, Mississippi. Debbie is also survived by her parents, Jerry and Jeanie Webb, in Fairhope, Alabama, along with her sister Lisa Webb Trotter and her husband Dave, and their children Nate, Eva, Nolan, and Elias, in Dripping Springs, Texas. Her sister Sharon Kaye Plunkett and her husband Ken in Waxahatchie, Texas, and their children, Christi, Megan, Justin, Ryan, and Jennifer. Her sister Michelle Dawn Swanner in Midlothian, Texas, and her children Amanda and Joshua. Debbie was preceded in death by sister Carla J. Harris and brother Jerry K. Webb, Jr. The family will celebrate Debbie’s life on Monday, Dec 19 at 11 am at Steelwood Chapel in Loxley, Alabama. Debbie hated funerals and depressing themes, so the family requests that guests avoid wearing black or other funeral colors and instead choose to wear festive colors. We look forward to seeing you there. Service: 12/19/22 at 11am Steelwood Chapel 33400 Steelwood Ridge Rd.
