Obituary

Deborah L. "Debbie" Hay, 59, passed from this life on Friday, October 31, 2014, at her home in Dallas Center following a long battle with diabetes. In agreement with her wishes, cremation rites have been accorded. A memorial gathering celebrating Debbie's life will be held from 6 to 8 p.m., on Wednesday, November 5, at Legion Hall (next to Dallas Center City Hall, located at 1502 Walnut Street in Dallas Center. A private committal service for the family will take place at a later date.

Debbie was born on October 16, 1955, in Des Moines, Iowa, to Jack and Melba (Appenzellar) Murray. She was formerly employed with the Lodge of Ashworth for several years. Debbie lived her life to the fullest. She loved all animals and enjoyed watching sprint car races. She was a member of the V.F.W. Auxiliary. Through sickness and health, Debbie was known to many as a fighter, with a feisty and bold personality. A fun-loving person, she was strong willed, loved being around friends and family; and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

She is survived and lovingly remembered by her loving companion with whom she shared a home, Jerry E. Leach of Dallas Center; two sisters, Karen (Nick) Barba of Bonita Springs, FL, and Peggy Murray of Dallas Center; and one brother, Larry (Sandra) Murray of Dallas Center. Debbie was preceded into eternal life by her parents; and two brothers, one at infancy.
