She was a high school graduate from West Covina, CA. Debra had a green thumb and had a talent for growing plants. She enjoyed camping, and sitting in the water.

On February 19, 1977, in Las Vegas, NV, Debra and Wayne Lawson were united in what would become 46 years of marriage. This couple spent 51 years together, traveling 48 states, seeing the country.

There, Debra would collect seashells to make seashell mirrors.
