Debra Kimrey, 67, of Mary Esther, Florida passed away on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 surrounded by close friends and family. Debbie was born on December 7, 1953 in Memphis, Tennessee to Eugene and Louise (Cox) Smitherman.
She was a successful business-owner and prominent salesperson who served the Florida Panhandle for nearly 30 years.
Debbie was a force to be reckoned with. She was an avid gardener who was always ready for a good time. She sewed quilts and clothes and was always on the lookout for a bargain. She relished over-feeding her loved ones and was never too full for a Krispy Kreme donut. She was happy as long as she was going with her Dean and her Shadow. She was endlessly optimistic, proud, fun-loving, and gentle.
Debbie is survived by her sons, Brian (Sue) Kimrey and Joshua (Natalia) Kimrey; her granddaughters, Lucila and Esme Kimrey; sisters, Barbara Hoffay and Donna Baker; and her loving partner, Dean Gibson and her dog Shadow.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, May 1, 2021 at The American Legion Post 297 in Destin at 2:00 pm.

On Friday April 9, 2021, Cheryl Ann (Richards) Phillips age 60 passed away peacefully surrounded by her children after a short battle with cancer.
Our beloved Mother, Daughter, Sister, and Friend was born on January 12, 1961 in Waco, Texas to Sylvia (Poole) and James A Richards Sr. She was a longtime resident of Shalimar and graduated from Choctawhatchee High School in 1979. As a child of a military family, Cheryl traveled from Texas to Alaska. At the age of seven, her family moved to the beautiful Emerald Coast that Cheryl called “home” for the rest of her days. Cheryl could usually be found in one of two places, at work where she spent many years with the Bruner Law Firm or with her kids. Cheryl loved her kids unconditionally and was always their biggest fan and supporter. She never missed the chance to attend any of their athletic events. Aside from her children’s teams she was a big fan of the Dallas Cowboys.
She is preceded in death by her father, James A Richards Sr. and nephew, Matthew A. Woodham.
She is survived by her mother, Sylvia (Poole ) Richards; her three children Jason Phillips, Jennifer Phillips, and Jaime (David) Leonard as well as her three siblings, Jim (Deborah) Richards, Debbie (Fred) Tarbox, and Sandy (Jeff) Triplett and several nieces, nephews, and close friends including her lifelong Bestfriend Pat Bailey.
Cheryl was a force to be reckoned with. She was fierce and never took “no” for an answer. She was full of jokes and knew how to make anyone smile even during her final days. Cheryl was so loved and will be missed by many including her great Dane Bella.
Thank you to our family, friends, and neighbors for your kindness and generosity during this time.
Thank you Emerald Coast Hospice for your selfless efforts for exceptional care of our mother.
A Celebration of Life will be held at Wyndham Gardens Conference Center (573 Santa Rosa Blvd) on Saturday April 24, 2021 beginning at 2 pm followed by a friends and family gathering at Sunset.
