Debra J. Sine, beloved daughter, sister, fiancé, cousin, and friend, passed away on February 3, 2024, in Wheeling, WV, at the age of 62.

Born on October 5, 1961, in Wheeling, WV, Debbie lived a life filled with love, laughter, and a passion for making those around her feel special. She was a dedicated Accountant for the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston, WV, where her meticulous attention to detail and unwavering commitment to her work earned her the respect and admiration of her colleagues.

Debbie had a heart full of compassion and an affectionate spirit. She had a deep love for dogs, and her special fur babies, Nikolas and Chanick, held a special place in her heart.

In her leisure time, Debbie found joy in riding ATVs/Four-Wheelers and hosting garage parties with her cherished family and friends. These gatherings were always filled with laughter, good food, and unforgettable memories. Debbie’s collection of Snoopy dogs also brought her much joy and served as a reminder of her playful and lighthearted nature.

Debbie will be deeply missed by her loving fiancé of many years, Kelly Ernest of Valley Grove, WV, and her sister, Cheryl (Gary) Pompeo of Wheeling, WV. She was a beloved mother figure to Ashley (Jesse) Watson and Brittany Ernest (Justin Rickman), and an adoring grandmother figure to Chance & Bailey Blake, and Logan Rickman. Close personal friends Charles (Casey) Yoho and children, Charles & David Yoho, were also an important part of Debbie’s life. Numerous special friends, who shared countless cherished moments with Debbie, will hold her memory close to their hearts.

The visitation will be held on Thursday, February 8, from 1:00-6:00 pm at Altmeyer Funeral Home – Wheeling Chapel, located at 1400 Eoff Street. A second visitation will take place on Friday, February 9, starting at 9:00 am until the time of the Funeral Service at 10:00 am, also at the funeral home. Debbie will be laid to rest at Halcyon Hills Memorial Gardens following the service.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that memorial contributions be made to the Ohio County Animal Shelter, located at 7011 National Road, Triadelphia, WV 26059, or online by clicking the link above. This gesture will honor Debbie’s immense love for animals and continue her legacy of compassion towards those in need.

Debbie’s life was a testament to the power of love, laughter, and cherishing precious moments with loved ones. Her warm smile, kind heart, and unwavering friendship will forever be remembered by all who had the privilege of knowing her. May her spirit live on in our hearts, guiding us to find joy in every day and to cherish the bonds of friendship and family.

I am so sorry for this loss to all of us who knew Debbie. It’s a cliche to say that someone’s smile “lit up the room” but Debbie’s truly did. Such a warm loving soul she was. The world is a dimmer place without her. My family has known Deb our whole lives. Our hearts are broken for your loss, Cheryl.

Heaven must have been in need for an animal lover and caregiver. I’m sure Lucy and Linus gave great recommendations! We will miss you Debbie! I’m so glad to have known you!

What a truly generous and gracious soul Heaven has gained. We’ve known one another for over 42 years and have enjoyed our times and travels together. Even though you never let me forget you had to wear green in our wedding (lol), our friendship grew stronger with each passing year. Until we see one another again, my friend.
