Debra “Debbi” Sammons Maupin went to be with her Heavenly Father, Wednesday June 29, 2022. She left here in peace surrounded by her friends and family.
Debbi was born in Johnson City, Tenn., on July 21, 1958. She was a member of Renewed Church in Kingsport, Tenn.
Debbi’s spirit was fierce, fierce in how she drew in everyone around her. She would not hesitate for a second to approach a total stranger with her ability to disarm even the most withdrawn of people and pull them into her friendly and warm company. She made friends wherever she went and once you met her, you couldn’t help but to be attracted to her magnetic personality of charm, laughter and honesty.
Debbi was the life of the party, excelled in business, had a talent for creative design, a zeal for adventure that included roller coasters, amusement parks, motorcycle riding, and cruises. She was a gifted nursery worker that adored babies. The way she lived her life is a testament to her devotion to our Lord and she demonstrated God’s love over and over with everyone that crossed her path.
Debbi was preceded in death by her father, Richard Sammons of Elizabethton.
She is survived by her devoted and loving husband of 17 years, Michael Maupin of Gray; her mother and childhood mentor of sewing/creative design, Doris Sammons of Elizabethton; and her sister, Dr. Denise Sammons of Johnson City.
