Deborah “Debbie” J. Krapf
After a four-month battle with pancreatic cancer, Deborah “Debbie” J. Krapf, 65, of Protem, MO, passed away with her family at her side on Sunday August 4, 2019. Debbie was a devout Christian woman, and along with her husband was a co-minister for the Protem Youth Ministries. She spent countless hours with the children at the youth center and never tired of it. She enjoyed gardening, was an amazing cook and enjoyed baking in any spare time. Her chicken and dumplings were a legend amongst family and friends. Debbie was most happy helping others and was an inspiration to all who met her. Her smile and laughter were contagious.
She was preceded in death by her parents Norman and Bonnie Brainer, and brother Charles Brainer.
She is survived by her loving husband Timothy; daughters Carrie McKee and Becky Krapf; granddaughters Makiah and Annukah McKee; and brother Michael Brainer.
Per Debbie’s wishes cremation rites were accorded and the family will hold a memorial service Saturday August 10, 2019 at the Protem Community church at 1 pm. A celebration of life will follow at the Protem Community Youth Center.
We will always carry you in our hearts Debbie, you left a lasting mark on each and every one of us that you touched.
