Deborah Lynne Garner, 54, a.k.a. Debbie Do, of Kingman, passed away on April 15, 2015. She was at home surrounded by her loved ones. She was born in Lovell, Wyo., on Aug. 22, 1960. She was the oldest daughter of Jacqueline Marlene Englert and Kenneth Glen Englert.

Debbie moved to Kingman in the early '80s. Here, she made a home for her family and a name for herself.

She was known around town as the woman with many hats. She spent a lot of her free time volunteering at the Eagles and VFW to help raise money for various causes around town. Raising money for the Diabetes Foundation and Multiple Sclerosis Society, as well as the very first diaper scale for KRMC, were some of her many achievements.

Her warm smiling face will be missed down at the Eagles.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Jacqueline Marlene Englert and Kenneth Glen Englert. She has left behind husband William Garner; daughter, Michelle Brotherton; son, Kenneth Dwiggins; sisters, Darla Engel and Delorah Altizer; five grandkids, Logan, Devin, Alya, Nathen and Raeann; and her best friends, Allene Mong and Jackie Stewart.

A memorial service will be held for Deborah Garner at the Eagles Lodge, 4536 N. Patsy Drive in Kingman, at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 2. All who knew Debbie are invited to attend. This memorial will be a potluck, so please bring your favorite dish and best memory to share with everyone.
