Our hearts are broken by the passing of our Debbie VanWinkle, beautiful wife, mother, daughter, sister, and Mimi. Debbie passed away on Saturday August 13, 2022. She was born in Stephenville on July 12, 1963. She lived in Stephenville, Hurst, and Bandera until she graduated from Bandera ISD in 1981. She went to Tarleton and has been a resident of Stephenville since that time. Debbie met the love of her life, Mike VanWinkle, and they married on July 20, 1995. She has worked many places and made many friends. Recently she worked in Granbury for Lakeside Physicians and for the last 8+ months at Stephenville Sports Rehab. She was always very diligent and sufficient in her work.
Debbie is survived by her loving husband of 27 years, Mike, five children, Allen, Sean (Jessica) Moore, Krystal (Montana) Tatsch, Matthew (Audry) Moore, and Aaron (Mackenzie) VanWinkle. Her parents, Martin and Mary Ann Smith, sisters, Joy (Leroy) Johnson, and Penny Smith. Grandchildren Braxton, Zachary, Paisley, Austin, Ryley, Grayce, Noah, and Pepper. Also by many aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, and cousins. A special thanks to Aunt Linda and Uncle Rodney for always being there for our family.
