Debra "Debbie" Ann (Coleman) Freeby

September 17, 1961 — July 10, 2021


Debra Ann (Coleman) Freeby of Hartford, Arkansas went to be with her Lord and Savior, Saturday, July 10, 2021 with her loving family by her side in Hartford, Arkansas. Debbie was born September 17, 1961 in Nacogdoches, Texas. She was 59 years old.

Debbie was born and raised in Nacogdoches, Texas. She had an amazing relationship with her grandparents and learned many life lessons from them. Debbie was a fun loving, kind and compassionate person. This made her calling to be a nurse very fitting. However, when she became a hospice nurse, she was the gold standard. Her genuine love for her patients was immeasureable. As much as Debbie took pride in her job, her true love was that for her family and friends. Debbie always greeted everyone with an unforgettable smile and a warm welcome. To know her was to love her. She loved to laugh and have fun. She enjoyed her garden, traveling and she looked forward to her scuba diving trips.

Debbie leaves behind to cherish her memory, her adoring husband Robert (Bobby) of the home, her children: Jason Helm of Atlanta, Georgia, Stephanie Wood and husband Frank of Bentonville, Arkansas, Erica Matthieson and husband Pete of Perry, Oklahoma and Erin Freeby of Pennsylvania and her best friend of 20 years, Tracy Whitaker.Gigi will forever remain in the hearts of her grandchildren: Payton Rea, Jacob Rea, Lance McClung, Lilly Matthieson, Ryan Matthieson, Kayla Young, Seth Young, Peyton Wood and Jordan Jones, her great grandchildren, Addilyn Ratcliff, Aubrie Young and SJ Young. Debbie will be missed by all that knew her and the many whose lives she impacted including a host of extended family, friends, neighbors and co-workers she loved dearly.

Debbie was preceded in death by her mother, Shirley Ann Rogers and grandparents Amos and Bennie Lee Rogers.
