Deborah is most remembered as a dog groomer at Debbie’s Dog Grooming in Alamosa. Her love of animals is legendary. In fact, it could be said that she never met an animal that she didn’t like. Although as a dog groomer she did have occasional disagreements with some. She took care of many dogs and cats as pets and kept a sizable company of chickens and rabbits through the years. Her big heart, compassion and forgiveness along with a passion to never hurt any living thing was an inspiration to all those around her.
