Debbie was born June 10, 1956, in Rowan County, a daughter of the late Samuel Richard Basford and Norma Oleatha Butler Curtis.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Mitchell Ray Layne, Sr., and her son, Mitchell Ray Layne, Jr.

Debbie was a devoted mother, grandmother, and great grandmother who loved all of her family dearly.  She enjoyed being a homemaker and taking care of her loved ones, especially spending time with the grandchildren.  She enjoyed her “soaps” on television and loved the outdoors sitting on the porch watching and listening to the birds.  She will be greatly missed and remembered with love.
