Debbie was a dedicated mother, wife, sister, friend and a very proud grandmother. The vivacious energy she radiated along with her unforgettable smile was admired by many. She never met a stranger. Debbie was always into something, rarely ever still and always putting others first. Debbie loved the color pink, flamingos, palm trees, laying out at the pool/beach, spending time with friends and family, planting flowers, golf cart rides with her husband and bowling. She loved to crochet and make afghans for every occasion all while watching General Hospital and eating her favorite candy M&M’s. Debbie also had many accomplishments in her lifetime but there were some that she was very proud of. She was a successful track star at Dobie High School in Houston, managed a horseback riding stable in Wisconsin, owned and operated a global online business selling vintage Barbie Dolls and co-owner of Cantu Fishing Charters with her husband, Capt. Jaime, in Galveston, Texas. Debbie enjoyed surrounding herself with loved ones and will be greatly missed.

Jaime Cantu; daughter and husband Kristin and Treb Alderson; sister Victoria Huminik; three stepdaughters Brittany Cantu, Brandace Borden and Kelsee Cantu; six grandchildren Sophia Cardenas, Lilly Smoke, Colton Smoke, Jaymen Alderson, Ashlynn Alderson, and Laken Alderson.
