Debra Thompson Frehner, loving wife, mother, sister, and grandmother returned to her Heavenly Father Thursday, June 28, 2012 in Provo, Utah. She was born October 18, 1956 to Richard and Alta Hansen Thompson in Spanish Fork, Utah. Debra attended Springville High School, and graduated from Highland High School in Pocatello, Idaho. She then furthered her education at Idaho State University.
She married her best friend, Brad Frehner on July 17, 1993 in the Jordan River Temple. She was a wonderful, caring wife. She loved her family and was very supportive of their many activities. She coached her boys in baseball, soccer, basketball, and was involved in the scouting program, and youth groups for her church. She would never miss an athletic event or choir concert in which her children performed; she was their number one fan.
Debra was employed as a computer specialist at BYU for 35 years. She loved to arrange flowers and was an excellent seamstress. She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and held many different church callings.
Debra is survived by her husband, Brad; children, Quinn Dillon and Zane Thompson, Jennifer, Brianne, Nathan, and Shaylee; eleven grandchildren; and her siblings, Nola (Charlie) Hall; Merrill (Irene) Thompson; Julia Thompson; and Tony (Karen) Thompson. She also leaves behind many nieces and nephews who adored her. She was preceded in death by her parents and a son, Brady Orlin Frehner.
