Debra Kay McTaggert of Wyoming, Michigan went home to the Lord on Wednesday, September 4, 2019 at the age of 64.
She was born in Lakehurst, New Jersey to Richard and Leona (Wilds) McTaggert on July 25, 1955. Alongside her parents, Debra is preceded in death by her sisters Pamela McTaggert, Sherri Denevan, and brother Michael Burns.
Debra is survived by her loving children Richard (Brenda) Stafford, Timothy (Melanie) Stafford, Joseph Sibley, and Sarah Sibley. Her mother Edna McTaggert. Her siblings Vicki (Dale) Price, Rhonda (James) Harris, Carol (David) VanNortwick, Tammy (Charles) Randol, Shelly Burns, Tammy Boyette, Jeffery Burns, and Connie (Jeremy) Wilson. Her grandchildren Megan, Mary, Kane, David, Drake, and Evan. Her great-grandchildren Maddlynn and Rylee. Along with her lovable cat Sammy, and several nieces and nephews.
Deb was a woman full of love and life. She had a deep devotion to her children, her sisters, and to God. She loved singing and cooking for family. Her Swedish Meatballs will definitely be missed by many who knew her. Deb was a creative soul with an intelligent mind. She loved to crochet, sew, and was very artistic in many ways. She was the type of crafter who could look at something and create the perfect pattern without having one. Over the years Deb nurtured many children who were not her own with an open heart. If anyone needed a hand, she always did her best to help them out. Despite having been very ill during the last handful of years in life, there was always a lot of love and laughter that surrounded her. She passed away due to health complications, but was very peaceful and surrounded by loved ones at the time.
Services will be held on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints located at 2670 56th St SW, Wyoming, MI 49418. Visitation with family is scheduled for 10AM; there will be a service at 11AM, followed by a light lunch. In lieu of flowers feel free to send donations to family to help cover funeral expenses.
