Debra Jean Creel White, born in Kansas City, Missouri on December 31, 1955 and passed away March 8, 2019 in Grandview, Missouri. She is survived by her husband Howard L. White II, four children; Kristen Marie White Brown, Justin Carl White, Jon William White and Kara Mae White, son-in-laws Kevin E. Brown and Todd G.

White, mother-in-law Martha E. White. She was preceded in death by her parents William and Virginia Mae Creel, sister Nancy K. Creel Sidwell and father-in-law Howard L. White.
Debbie was a lifelong resident of Kansas City, where she was a stay at home mom who was actively involved in PTA and her children’s school activities. She was also a second mom to many of her children’s friends. Because of her love for children she went back to work in the Hickman Mills school district when her youngest was 10 years old. She retired from the school district in 2014 after 17 years of service. She would say her greatest accomplishment in life was being a mother, and grandmother. She touched many lives and was loved by all and gave love freely to anyone. Debbie will be greatly missed by those she touched.
