Deborah Jean (Slayton) Cone

August 28, 1951 ~ February 1, 2020 (age 68)


I carry your heart with me, Poem by E.E. Cummings. Here is the deepest secret nobody knows. Here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide and this is the wonder that is keeping the stars apart... I carry your heart I'll carry it in my heart.

Deborah Jean Cone passed away on February 1st, 2020. She is survived by her four children: Jennifer, Stacey, Amber, Cory and daughter-in-law Jacki; her most beloved dog, Freckles; nine grandchildren: James, Christopher, Lauren, Alyc, Cristian, Aydin, Elias, Iman, and Maryam; her grand son-in-law Aaron, and her father Bobby. Her life’s message was to ALWAYS love one another. In the last several months of Debbie’s life, what we have come to KNOW is that during the times we found her most difficult, she wasn’t asking us to give HER anything, but she was giving us multitudes of opportunities to become more loving. The birth and death of this great woman, however, is not nearly as relevant as all the days and nights that she lived to the fullest between those two dates. Debbie was always intellectually ahead of her time and a forward thinker. She was a political activist and remained firm in her extreme dislike of Donald Trump.There will be no formal service of any kind, except for those who truly loved her. If you didn’t care enough to spend time with her while she was alive, then you sure the hell are not going to give your artificial respect after she has passed on. Stay Gold Grandma!! We love and miss you so much already! We will always and forever carry you in our hearts!
