Giving
The memorial organizer requested donations in honor of Deborah Ann Brink

FUNDS WILL BE USED FOR

Funeral Expenses & Memorial Fund (Scholarship, Dedication, etc.).

I am not setting a goal. I have had several people ask about helping with the cost for the celebration of life. We plan on having a big celebration when the social distancing guidelines are lifted. She was insistent that when she pass we laugh and dance and share good times. She wanted to be remembered with joy, so that is our plan. If anyone wants to contribute, it will be used towards the celebration. Anything beyond that will go towards Lila's college fund, as Lila meant the world to my mom. They were best friends and I know her future weighed heavily on her heart.

Raised $450

OBITUARY
My mom, Debbie, always put others before herself. No matter what. It didn't matter what was going on in her own life, if you needed her, she was there for you. She would go out of her way to try and make life better for those around her. She was the ultimate Den Mother to my friends in high school. She told me that she believed everyone deserved to be able to have a safe harbor and true family (and family was more than just blood), and...  see more

    My deepest sympathies to both Debbie's family at home as well as her Eaton family.

    I've had the pleasure of being one of Debbie's customers for decades. I can only imagine how much more difficult it must be having worked along side her everyday as I...  more

    Finding my Aunt was a gift from God. I was adopted as a baby and always wanted to find my Bio Mother.....I found her name to late, she had already passed. I found my Aunt Debbie though and she welcomed me with an open heart and open arms. She shared...  more

      Amanda Bray We were so happy when you found us. I know my Aunt wished she could have found you long ago, and Mom always thought of you as another one of her kids.

    I am at a loss for words as of yet, I am heartbroken and cannot imagine life ahead without Debbie in it. I have worked along side her for 26 years, so more than half my life...that is just crazy to think about. I remember when I first started and she...  more

    I worked with Debbie for the last 7 years. I was Debbie's Manager, but it was I who learned so much! In Eaton Corp. Debbie was considered a subject matter expert when it came cylinders and cylinder components.

    Everyone I talked with, colleagues,...  more

      Amanda Bray Thank you Greg. She was so excited to share the hours of grandparent-hood with you. She certainly did love her customers too... they are a big reason why she didn't retire many years ago. She loved so many of her customers and co- workers... she couldn't...  more

    Since, I'm a cousin, I saw your mom and you, on and off, during my life. I do remember running into you both, while camping, at Natural Bridge. But my most fond memory, of her, and you... was being over at Grandma Clemans' when you were born, and your...  more

      Amanda Bray Thank you Lisa. I know she truly appreciated the posts from you, updating us on family matters on that side. She always felt bad that she didn't get over to talk to Aunt Barbara more often. We always enjoyed our visits.

    She was such an amazing person. She was strong, persevering, and a caring person. She passed those traits on to her daughter and granddaughter. Her light will always shine through her family and friends. ♡♡♡
