Flowers & Gifts
Deborah Lynn McKee, 58, of Hardy, VA, formerly of Damascus, VA, went to be with her Lord on Thursday, August 9, 2018. Deborah was born on January 17th, 1960, in Aiken, South Carolina to Donald Hughes and Vivian Savannah Parks.
She was a member of New Testament Baptist Church. She was a 1979 graduate of Princeton High School and attended Bluefield State College, studying Criminal Justice. She then went into the Navy as a dental hygienist. She later took classes in paralegal, medical records technician, and photography and was planning to write a book. She later lived in Hardy, VA for the rest of her life. She was the most loving and caring mother anyone could ask for, she loved doing for her family and making sure everyone was happy. She lived a tough life as she was raised by her grandmother, Sarah Green, because her mother was taken to be with the Lord when she was only 4 years old. That was her biggest fear, not being a good mother. Why, we have no clue because she was the best wife, mother, grandmother and sister anyone could have asked for. She had a huge loving, giving heart. She loved to read and learn. She spent many hours on her computer taking classes and when she would finish, instead of finding a career in what she learned, she would find something else to learn. In her past few years, what she enjoyed most is watching her granddaughters and giving them baths. She loved to go thrift shopping and she would be so excited to bring presents to her family, on all the good finds she would find. The day before she passed, she laid in our pool and was so happy about the tan she got. Her and Daddy were going on vacation for their anniversary on August the 14th. She packed like she was never coming back.. They were going to stay at the old mill in her hometown, Damascus, VA. She was so excited to go learn about some things to put in her book, that she had been talking about writing. She loved her family, her husband, her brother, her two girls and her two grandchildren so very much. Survivors include her husband, Marty McKee, her youngest daughter, Ameral Savannah Nicole McKee (Brandon Lavinder), her granddaughter, Aubree Lynn Lavinder, her oldest daughter, Jennifer Lynn Conner (Darren Conner) , (Raelyn Aultice), her brother, Donald Parks (Maria Parks) and her nephew, Chase Parks and the McKee family.
