her Family. Deborah was born on Oct. 8,
1947 to Levi William Paul and Elizabeth
Maxine Paul. She was the
first of five children.
On Sept. 3, 1967, Debbie
gave birth to a son, Gregory
Chacon. Debbie married the
love of her life, David D.
Privett, on April 5, 1968, and
became an instant mother to
David’s children, which consisted of two daughters and a
son, and then together they
had a daughter which completed the family.
Debbie and David Privett spent most of their lives
in Reno, NV, before moving
to American Falls, ID. Debbie was a stay-at-home mother for several years before
working for the City of Sparks, NV. After moving from Reno to American Falls,
Debbie went to work for IB&T where she
started her career in banking. She retired
as a Branch Manager for California Federal in 1996.
In 2002 David and Debbie moved
back to American Falls to be closer to
their children and grandchildren, where
they lived happily on their small farm.
After David’s passing Debbie moved into
Brookdale Assisted Living in Pocatello,
ID, and made many friends
including her best friend,
Irene. They shared many
adventures together! Debbie
enjoyed crafting and painting in her spare time. Debbie
also loved going to auctions,
yard sales and estate sales.
There was never a time
that Debbie didn’t have a
smile on her face and a positive thing to say. She had
tremendous faith in the Lord
and was an amazing mother
and grandmother. Every person that met her fell in love
with her spirit.
