Debra was born Aug. 14, 1946 to John and Louine Cox.

She enjoyed most of all shopping and eating out with her twin sister Diane and sister Shirley, her church family and the close relationship of her extended family of cousins, aunt/uncles, nieces and nephews, outdoor adventures and motorcycle riding with her husband Gene all over the paved back roads of Oregon, always watching for wild and farm animals. Even though Debbie rode on the back (not the front) she was a member of the Christian Motorcycle Association since the mid 1980’s and participated in State rallies in neighboring states.

Her career included data entry and invoicing at Wilson Sporting Goods for twelve years and an administrative assistant at the Catholic Sentinel Newspaper / Oregon Catholic Press for fourteen years, then six years as a security officer for ACE Security, mostly doing security at the convention center and expo shows.

Debbie is survived by her husband Gene of 43.5 years, her daughter Tammy Kreif, identical twin sister Diane Jacobsen & husband Fred, brother Jerry Cox & wife Glennda and sister Shirley Leao.
