We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Gateway Funerals & Cremation
Debbie Frazier was born to Jack Frazier and Dorothy Mauldin in Sun Valley, California in April of 1955. Debbie had five brothers; Roland, David, Floyd, Johnny, and Travis along with two sisters; JoAnne and Rita. JoAnne is the only surviving sibling.
Debbie was a Christian woman who lived by the 4 agreements; be impeccable with your word and always truthful, don’t take anything personal, don’t make assumptions and always do your best in all that you do.
Debbie had a difficult childhood but proved early on she was the kind of woman that could make it through any obstacles in her path. Although she did not graduate from high school, she earned herself a career with the county of Los Angeles where she remained dedicated for 35 years. During Debbie’s time with the county, she attended school at Cal State University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Business. Her mother, daughter Michelle and Michelle’s best friend, Maureen, were so very proud to witness her walk across the stage to accept her diploma. She always said her most enjoyable and important accomplishment in life was raising her children.
Debbie loved live music, hiking, reading, spending time with her friends outdoors, laughing with those she loved most and most recently having morning coffee with her daughter, Michelle. She enjoyed an occasional trip to a casino, watching videos of her great granddaughter and spending time with her loving Murdock family. She also loved to see others prosper and do well in life.
Debbie took early retirement from the county of Los Angeles and moved across the country to join Michelle in Dallas. Shortly after the move and bored with retirement, she started working for Ronparco, a construction company owned by Flavio and Eva, two angelic people that were dedicated to her success and remained by her side through her diagnosis, until she lay at rest.
Debbie is survived by her son, Tony Murdock, her two daughters, Leslie Muench and Michelle Murdock, along with two loved ones she considered her daughters, Stephanie Terrazas and Mica Murdock. She adored and enjoyed her grandchildren; Alex and Bow Peralta, Daniel Peralta, Brianna Peralta, Jael Murdock, and her great granddaughters, River Marie Peralta, Kendall Terrazas and great grandson, Trenton Terrazas.
Debbie will be missed tremendously by her family and friends. She will be remembered for her kindness, gentleness, and true caring. She was truly beautiful inside and out. Debbie’s life will be continued to be celebrated through all the things she taught us and the love she showed us all.
Rarely is a family so fortunate to have so many caring family members and friends. Your love and concern were manifested in countless ways. We are truly grateful. During this time of remembrance, every visit, phone call, text, flowers, and every other gesture truly showed how much Debbie was loved. Although she is no longer here in the flesh, she will continue to be celebrated by the example she was and her love of others.
We would also like to thank Dr. Donthiereddy, Dr. Tu Dan, Dr. Patel, Emilia Bourland OTR, Angela Muthoni Ndegwa, and very own Stephanie Terrazas and the countless nursing staff and techs that assisted in her loving care.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to be made in her name to UT Southwestern Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center. We pray that treatments will be discovered to heal those suffering from cancer and bring comfort to those in need.
