Debra Dyanne Bolinger of Safford passed away on February 5, 2022. She came into this world feet first, fast, and hit the ground running on August 26, 1976, to Albert and Diane Thornton.
As a child, their family moved around a lot until making Duncan their home. Debra graduated from Duncan High School in 1994. She had numerous jobs throughout her life.

Debra met her soulmate, Ronnie in 2004, and they were married in Las Vegas in June of 2005. Debra never had children of her own but loved her nieces and nephews as if they were her own.
Debra is proceeded in death by both sets of grandparents Jerden and Ruby Thornton and Cecil and O'Dell Reynolds, her father Albert E. Thornton, her dad Frank A. Diddio, and two brothers Michael and Thomas Diddio.
