Deborah L. “Debbie” Whiteman

July 24, 2022

Deborah L “Debbie” Whiteman passed away on July 24, 2022 at the age of 68 in her hometown of Frankfort, Indiana. She was born on July 24, 1954 to Kenneth L. and Patricia A. Parker.  Debbie was previously married to Rick Whiteman with whom she had one daughter, Brandi Nichole.

After graduating from Clinton Central High School in 1972, she dedicated 41 years of service to Federal Mogul in Frankfort.  Debbie found great joy in the people she surrounded herself with.  She was a member of the Forest Baptist Church and the UAW Local 1949.  She loved family gatherings, especially those including her grandchildren, and attending festivals with her closest friend, Penny Boots. In later years, Debbie brought joy to her nursing home buddies at Wesley Manor by joining sing-alongs or just being her feisty self. Despite her medical challenges, Debbie remained cheerful!


Donations can be made in Debbie’s name to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, 13770 Noel Road, Suite 801889, Dallas, TX 75380.

    I just saw where Debbie passed away my condolences to her family . I was her home health aide from Visiting Angels I enjoyed assisting her and spending time with her.
