Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Deborah Kay Strange, age 63

Deborah Kay Strange, age 63, of Little Rock, Arkansas went to be with the Lord on October 4, 2023. She was born in Calhoun County, Mississippi on May 11, 1960 to the late William and Mary Darby.

Deborah, also known to many as Deb Darby, was a loving, kind, woman who would help anyone she could. She was a great mother who loved her kids until her last breath. She will be missed by many.

She leaves behind her daughter Angela Stevens; daughter-in-law Triquetta Stevens; granddaughter Trivonna Johnson; her brothers Steve Darby, Roger Conlee and sister-in-law Patricia Conlee.

She will be reunited in Heaven with her son Joshua; her mother Mary; and father Big Will.

A visitation will be held in Deborah’s honor on Friday, October 13, 2023 from 6:00-8:00pm in the chapel at A Natural State Funeral Service in Jacksonville, Arkansas.

The last thing she wrote in her prayer box was “Heaven is my next home”, so we say goodbye and we will see you again when we make it home.
