Devoted mother, grandmother, friend and prankster, Debbie Denise Dockery-Moshier passed through the valley of tears on April 20th, 2014, finally succumbing in her fight with ALS. These words that follow are but a paltry summarization of her life, barely painting a picture of this wonderful, vibrant woman.

A Celebration of Life service will be held in her memory at the First Baptist Church of Altamonte Springs (900 North Street, Longwood, Florida) on Thursday, April 24th at 6 PM. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the ALS Association-Orlando Chapter, or to First Baptist Church of Altamonte Springs would be fitting with her and her family's wishes.

Born on June 27, 1956, to Lewis and Ivadean Dockery, in Pontiac, Michigan. She leaves behind her husband, Gregory Dean Moshier, along with seven children and stepchildren; Rachel Callahan, Jason Moshier, Larissa Hicks, Josh Moshier, Amy Moshier, Jordan Moshier and Caleb Moshier, eleven grandchildren; Samantha, Chelsea, Megan, Joshua, Colin, Gavin, Maya, Jeremiah, Matthew, Bryn and Cody, and two great grandchildren, Storm and Victoria. She also leaves behind a sister, Donna, and innumerable great aunts, aunts, cousins of every kind, nieces and nephews, and friends.
She was an avid gardener, though she hated receiving flowers, since she believed that the only place for a flower was in the ground.
She was a giver, be it her time, money or love. Her oven was constantly churning out pies, cookies and cakes by the dozen, for anyone who wanted one, and some who didn't.
She loved her friends and family freely, never holding back in her praise of concerns. IF you were doing something wrong, she'd be at the front of the line to scold you, but she'd also be the first to give you a way to fix the problem.
If you can be judged by the friends that you keep, then she was one of the greatest persons on this earth. In the words of famed author Albert Camus, 'Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend'.
