Deborah died peacefully on August 26, 2015.
Born in Garner, NC to Lexie and Louise Gulley Young, Deborah made her home in Atlanta, GA. Few friends could recall anyone with a bigger heart or more generous nature. Deborah loved to travel, created beautiful Christmas ornaments and hand-crocheted blankets, and was a wicked adversary with a deck of cards. She lived a full, happy life; was a dauntless supporter of those she loved; a loyal friend; and she didn't take any crap from anybody.
Deborah is survived by her son, Jordan Foster, and his father, Jimmy Foster of Nashville, TN; husband Doug Edwards; uncle Richard Gulley and wife Linda; brother Van Young; nieces Kelly Blanchard, Casey Rodriguez and Hanna Young, and their families; dozens of cousins and friends; and her great friend Rita Dozier.
The family would like to thank Crossroads Hospice in Atlanta. A memorial service will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, Sept 5 at Hayes Chapel Christian Church in Garner.
