MIDLAND - Debbie Kay Henson loving wife, mother, Nana, daughter, sister and friend, died on Jan. 23, 2019, at Midland Memorial Hospital. She was born on May 15, 1963, in Carlsbad, New Mexico.

She never met a stranger; she loved people and loved to be on the go. She was great at making crafts. At Thanksgiving, as sick as she was, she lovingly made beautiful wreaths for her family. She deeply loved her family, and they will deeply miss the love and laughter she brought to their lives. Her mom and sisters will hold dear the memories of their adventurous travels and Black Friday shopping. She was small but oh, so mighty. She was a fighter who lived life on her own terms.
