Deborah Spears of Greers Ferry was born December 21, 1952 to the late Morton and Mickey Madison. She attended high school at Robert E. Lee in San Antonio Texas and returned to Arkansas in the late 1970’s. She had various jobs working as a manager, cashier, attended cosmetology school but she was a seamstress at heart, she eventually went to work for Little Rock Tent and Awning for years before being forced to retire due to her health.

"Debbie" passed from this life in the early morning hours of September 1 as a result of complications from surgery. She is a breast cancer survivor and recently received a diagnosis of colon cancer. She was a fighter that never complained or wanted to burden anyone with her bad days.

She is survived by her 4 daughters Amy (Darren) Pierce of Sheridan, Kathy (Mike) Dixon of Pine Bluff, Tami (Spencer) Croy of Redfield and Brandi Wheeler of Gulfport MS; 11 grandchildren Jessica Pierce, Chris Wheeler, Rebekah Dixon, Joshua McGhee, Colton (Destiny) Funderburg, Makayla (Zac) Watkins and Spencer Funderburg, Brandon House, Gerri, Erin and Ruby Bretchel; 5 great grandchildren Skyler, Lexcie, Axel, Greyson and Gentry all of which she was so proud of.

If you knew her, you knew that she loved to sew and crochet. She never missed a chance to brighten your day with something she made that meant so much for her to give it you. She blessed her kids and grandkids often with crocheted toboggans, scarfs, mittens and beautiful one of a kind blankets. She loved her children and grandchildren genuinely and always wanted to hear about your day no matter how good or bad.

She is preceded in death by her parents Mickey and Morton Madison, her sister Susan Madison and step son Kevin Lawrence. Her husband, Archie, was her best friend, caretaker, and loving husband of 32 years who left this world just hours after her passing.

Private services will be held at a later date for family and close friends.
