Deborah Kay Warsinsky, 66, of McMechen, West Virginia died peacefully at home, on November 14, 2015.

She was born May 3, 1949, to the late C. D.  Houge, and Nathalee Houge in Houston, Texas.  She graduated from Spring Branch High School, and later worked for several Houston area insurance companies, including her last position as claims adjuster at Fireman’s Fund.

Debbie married her husband Chris in 1986, they had two children while living in Houston, and in 1989 relocated to her beloved adopted state of West Virginia.

Debbie enjoyed people, made friends with folks from all walks of life, and if you called Debbie your friend, you indeed had a good one. She was a stay at home mother during her children’s early years, while later transitioning back into the workforce in various occupations including, toy museum tour guide,  and senior living residence cook.  Upon retirement appreciated watching cooking shows, long weekends at camp and talking to her girlfriends on the phone.

Debbie is survived by her loving husband of 29 years, Chris Warsinsky, her daughter Nathalee (Nattie) of Brooklyn, NY, and son Hunter of Pittsburgh, PA.  Along with her brothers Cyle Hogue of Wimberley, Texas, Terry Hogue of Duncanville, Texas, her sister Connie (Morris) Grayson of Childress, Texas.   Nieces include Adria Grayson, and Jenny Hensley of Texas, Hesper Nelson of Pittsburgh, PA, and Savannah Nelson of McMechen.  Nephews include Cody Grayson of Texas, Chris (Kerri) Ferro of Charleston, WV, Brett Ferro of McMechen, and Adam Ferro of Pittsburgh, PA.   Sister-in-laws include Roseann (Mike) Ferro, and Sheila (Mark) Nelson both of McMechen.  Mother and father-in-law include Thomas and Rose Warsinsky, of McMechen.  Best girlfriends include Becky Kessler, Gloria (Britt) Walters, Sherri Matheny and Larkin.

Debbie’s only known regret goes out to Paul and Ringo for slipping in the back door of the 1965 Sam Houston Coliseum Beatle concert.

Upon Debbie’s wishes her ashes are to be spread near the family Middle Island creek camp, and along the Red River in Texas.

Family and friends will be received on Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2015 from 10 am until time of services at 11 am at the Altmeyer Funeral Home, Benwood-McMechen Chapel, 214 Marshall Street, McMechen, services will follow.

Debbie was like a sister to me and my sisters. She always made us laugh and was always full of life. She brightened our young lives with tales of good times she had with one of her best friends my sister Gloria. She will be missed but she was loved by many that will keep her memory strong. My prayers go out to all especially her children and Chris, I know she was a great Mom because she always showed my boys a great time on those summer vacations they spent with her and the family. Thank you Debbie for always bieng you.
Love Carol and Joshua Sanchez
