Debbie was born on December 27, 1972 at Patrick Air Force Base, FL to James Howard and Rebecca (Brown) Pennington. She was a proud graduate of Columbus High School and Columbus Technical College, graduating as the top student.
Love overflows for Debbie, beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister. While her time on earth was short, she filled it with love for her family and home. Debbie advocated passionately for childhood cancer and children battling OMS-Opsoclonus Myoclonus Syndrome. She spent years raising awareness for this rare autoimmune disorder and making a difference in the lives of so many children and their families fighting OMS.
Debbie is survived by her husband, Sam, and children Ryan, Samantha, and Connor. In addition, she is survived by her mother, Rebecca Pennington; her sisters, Kristine (Mark) Mitchell, Elizabeth Pennington, and Laurie (Jonas) Billiot; and her aunt, Helen Pennington Long. She is also survived by many loving in-laws, nieces, and nephews.
Debbie was an angel on Earth and now flies in the heavens. 
“I will lift my eyes to you, to you whose throne is in heaven.”--Psalm 123:1
The family requests donations be made to Columbus Hospice, 7020 Moon Road, Columbus, GA 31909.
