ObituaryShare A Memory

Debby fought a good fight, she was determined, but is finally at rest.  Debby took her final lap on October 16, 2017. 

 
Debby was born on July 8, 1957 to Ken and Mary Wofford.  She graduated from Wapato High School in 1975.  She worked for Dad at the shop and racing was a part of her life.  She was a side kick to her favorite brother (our only brother) and involved in his racing career.  After Joey died, Debby continued to race car 100 and was the first woman to win a race at the Yakima Speedway.   
 
Debby met her husband, Roger, during their racing days. They were married in 1992 and celebrated their 25th anniversary this year.  Debby had two daughters, Mercedes and Samantha.  She was very proud of her two girls.  Mercedes and Samantha would bring friends over who stayed and became a part of the family.  Debby was involved with JC in his racing – always a support to him.  JC, Ari and her lifelong best friend, Frances Balzer Chambers were a special part of her family also. 
 
Debby was a good sister and friend. She was loyal, stubborn and you knew where you stood with her.  She loved animals (Mercedes got this trait) and reading (Samantha got this one) especially crime and mystery books.  
 
Roger, Patty and Frances did a wonderful job of watching over and taking care of Debby while she went through this illness.   
 
She now joins our brother Joe, our sister Donna, our mom, Mary and our dad Ken in a much better place.   She is survived by her husband Roger, her daughters, Mercedes Wofford Hall (Dylon) and Samantha (Lukas) Volk; her sisters Nora (Don) Albright, Patty (Jack) Mondor, Brenda (Ron) Grosz, sister-in-law, Julie (Dale) Gasseling, her best friend, Frances (Mercry), many nieces and nephews and many friends. 
 
Debby’s celebration of life will be Friday, October 20, 2017 at 2:00 pm at Valley Hills (formerly Merritt’s Funeral Home) in Wapato.   Brookside Funeral Home is caring for the family. Memorials may be made in her memory to the Union Gospel Mission in Yakima, and sent in care of Brookside Funeral Home (PO Box 1267, Moxee, WA 98936).
