Deborah Ann (Goans) Owen was born December 23, 1954 in Salina, Kansas. She was the oldest daughter of Danny and Joan Goans. She passed away November 14, 2010 unexpectedly at her home in Osceola, MO at the age of 55.
Debbie was a wonderful loving daughter and big sister. She was an attentive student who later went on to nursing school. This paved the way to fulfilling her passion in life, taking care of people, especially those really in need. She had her dream job, working in social services for battered women. It was a job she did proudly and took very seriously.
Debbie was a born giver. She lived her daily life selflessly doing whatever she could to make those around her happy. She had four children whom she loved dearly along with the six biggest loves of her life, her grandchildren. She was the greatest grandma anyone could ever ask for; she lived her life for them and through them.
Debbie is survived by her parents, Danny and Joan Goans Lowry City; her sister Denise Bailey and brother-in-law Ron; her four children, Michael Owen, Jeremy Owen, Andrea Owen and her partner Brendan Brecht, and Ryan and Cindy Owen; and six grandchildren, Coby and Caleb Owen (Michael’s kids), Sam and Olivia Owen (Jeremy’s kids), and Oscar and Harvey Brecht (Andrea’s kids); and her two nieces Holly and Taylor Bailey.
