Debra Sheldon

Our sweet daughter, sister, mother, and grandmother passed away on Valentine’s Day in Thatcher, Arizona, surrounded by family. She was 63.

Debi was born August 15, 1953, to Blaine E Whitehouse and Janeen Twede Whitehouse in Tooele, Utah. She graduated from Tooele High School, Class of 1971. Debi was married to Nevin James Sheldon on January 6, 1971. They are the parents of two children. They were later divorced, but remained close friends.

Debi was employed at Goodyear Tire Company where she retired with over sixteen years of service. She became an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints later in life and was instrumental in having her family sealed to her in the Temple.

She had a great sense of humor and was a close friend to all who knew her. She adored her sixteen grandchildren, three great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

Debi is survived by: her parents; sister, Susan Tuttle (Ray); son, James Paul Sheldon (Kimberly); and daughter, Joanna Janeen Pierce (Nathan). She will be greatly missed.
