Debra Kay “Debbie” Rodgers, 65, of Breckenridge, passed away on Saturday, December 12, 2020. Debbie – a loving wife, mother and Nana – gained her angel wings after a short but courageous battle with cancer. Her celebration of life visitation will be held from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 19, in the Melton-Kitchens Chapel of Memories.

Debbie Rodgers was born November 27, 1955, in Corona, California, to Barbara (Bishop) and Gene Lewis. Debbie attended schools in Strawn, Texas, and Breckenridge, Texas. She married the love of her life, George Rodgers, on August 31, 1976. They raised a family together for 35 years until he succumbed to cancer in 2012.

Debbie never met a stranger and had the ability to talk to anyone like she had known them forever. She saw the good in everyone and treated everyone with kindness and love. Debbie taught her children to be strong, courageous, independent and to love unconditionally. These traits have carried on through her grandchildren whom she loved with all her heart. Debbie was both her children’s and grandchildren’s biggest fan and would often talk about their most recent accomplishments. Debbie loved her Coffee, almost as much as she did her kids. To her family, she was their personal weather watcher. She would call her children when there was bad weather headed their direction, and you better not even think about taking a bath or shower if it was storming outside.

Debbie is survived by her children, Debra (James) Spivey, Amber (Ronald) Dixon, and Todd Rodgers; her mother, Barbara (Edwards) Foley; brother, David (Kay) Roberson; sisters, Sherry Beard and Renee (Ron) Bulman; brother-in-law, Larry Rodgers; sister-in-law, Patsy McMullen; grandchildren, Ethan Wimberley, Maci Spivey, Cutter Dixon, Cailee Dixon, Adam Hunt, Nevaeh Hunt, as well as Chloe and Madelyn Daugherty. She is also survived by her longtime companion, Miss Molly, her Pomeranian that she adored.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 35 year, George Rodgers; her son Michael Nipp; her Daddy Don, Donald Ray Roberson; brother, Donald Ray Roberson Jr.; nephew, John William Bulman; sister-in-law, Glenna Schoen; brother-in-law, Roger McMullen; and Special Uncle and Aunt Johnny and Martha Rodgers.

Donations in Debbie’s name can be made to the Breckenridge Fire Department or Stephens County Humane Society and can be left at the Melton-Kitchens Funeral Home office. Condolences can be made online at
