On September 3, 2023 Debra Marie Jones (Darnell) passed away at her home in Republic. She was born in Edmonton, Canada to Mary and Raleigh Darnell on June 6, 1958. She was their pride and joy.

Debra married Daniel Jones from Leavenworth, Washington in 1985. They had two daughters, Danielle and Chelsea Jones. The couple moved to Republic, Washington in 1988 where Debra spent the remainder of her life. Debra spoke highly of Chelan and all the people in it. Even though she made Republic home, Chelan always held a large piece of her heart.

She is survived by her brother Raleigh Gautier; two daughters Danielle Jones and Chelsea Jones and her four beloved grandchildren, Hayley Jones, Kaydin Lembcke, Mason Patrick Jones and Ryker Cochran.
