Debra Lynn Holt Thompson

Debra Lynn Thompson at age 64, returned to her heavenly home on Oct. 1st 2021. She passed away in her home surrounded by her children. Her death was due to massive digestive system complications.

Debra was born on Oct. 20th 1956, in James Town New York, daughter of James and Beverly Holt.

Debra was very active in her life; all of her life was devoted to her children and Family. She was an painter and an artist for 13 years, she served diligently for several years on the school PTA program, she was an EMT for 20+ years, and was a real estate investor-developer.

Debra belonged to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was a faithful servant of our Lord Jesus Christ even to her very last breath. Debra was most happy when spending time with family. Her family was her life. Her very favorite thing to do recreationally was to return to North Carolina where she was raised to visit family and spend time at Myrtle Beach South Carolina absorbing the sun.

She is survived by her six children, Shayna Page of Preston, Idaho, Reese Waddoups of Whitney, Idaho, Wayne Waddoups of Franklin, Idaho, Cheryl Cortes of Franklin, Idaho, Donny Waddoups of Logan, Utah, and Thomas Waddoups of Whitney Idaho, who all love her dearly and will miss her intensely.

I sure loved Debra! I enjoyed her testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and we shared a love of art. She and I were Visiting Teaching Companions when I lived in Whitney. She spoke to me of her great love for each of her family members. Please know that I will be praying for you to receive comfort and peace. I am so sorry for your loss of her companionship for now. She was a bright light.
