Debra LaRue Woods Fitzwater, born, August 12, 1955. Parents, Lister, and Janice Cannon Woods. Raised in the Escalante Valley, and proud to be from Beryl Utah. Debbie served many callings in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was loved by the young and old that she served. Later in life, declining health restricted her ability to serve others and participate fully in callings, which broke her heart. Debbie was the proud wife of Russell Norman Fitzwater for 46 years; they were partners in work and play. They enjoyed a great deal of time isolated and together on their cattle ranch in Central Nevada. She was the proud mother of two daughters, Emily Fitzwater-Venuti and Cassie (Corey Jenkins), two sons Zack (Taysha) and Rye (Portia), and the loving grandmother of 15 Grandchildren, 13 boys and 2 Girls. Debbie loved to travel, but her true calling was to keep Russ grounded. She will be waiting for Russ in the next life, eager to set him straight.
The family would like to thank all of the friends, family, and the many healthcare providers; Dixie Regional Medical Center, Dr. Carl Van Gils, and Zions Way Home Health and Hospice, for the tender love and compassion provided during the last course of her life.
