Deborah “Debbie” Waples Obituary

It is with heavy hearts and deep sorrow that we share the passing of Deborah Waples, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. Debbie met the Lord on January 18, 2024.


Born on October 31, 1949 in Cincinnati, OH to Connie and Lee Neyer. Debbie had the strongest faith. She loved nothing more than spending time with her family. Debbie loved to spend her summers in the pool with her family. She was very talented in decorating and planting flowers. Debbie would host a fishing derby for her family and close friends each year. She had the joy of giving everyone prizes for biggest fish, first caught fish, smallest fish, and many more. She looked forward to the fishing derby each year.


Debbie had favor with God.

Her number one mission in life was to make sure everyone she met knew the Lord.  We know that there are so many people that greeted Debbie in Heaven. Debbie's biggest joy in life was that her entire family has been saved.


Debbie met the love her life, James Waples, at the age of 14. On Valentine's Day in 1970 they exchanged vows. Debbie and Jim would have been married for 54 years in February. Together they shared a beautiful and inspirational life. Her love to be a wife, mother, and grandmother was remarkable. Debbie was the heart and soul of her family and shined a bright light. She was strong, brave, faithful, loving, kind, and forgiving. She had such an impact on everyone that she had met.
