On September 6, 2023, Debi passed away peacefully at home, and as she would often say, "lived a good life!". She was born on May 30, 1955 to Donald and Helen Cargill in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Debi was always positive, optimistic, and strong in her faith and love for Jesus Christ. She was an amazing friend to many, and truly had a heart of gold. She was a beautiful ray of sunshine, inside and out!
Debi was also somewhat of a "wild" one ... full of spunk, fun, laughter, and good times! Her smile, and her laugh, were contagious.
Debi moved to Big Bear City, CA from Atascadero, CA to raise her family with her beloved husband Tony Holt. Just a few years after Tony's passing in 1997, she decided to move herself and kids to one of her (and Tony's) favorite places, sunny Palm Springs, CA. Those who knew Debi knew how much she loved the sunshine! The last years of her life she really enjoyed diamond painting, and she was great at it! It really kept her busy (she was no longer working) and she especially loved doing custom diamond paintings of, and/or for, her family ❤️
Survived by her children, Shawna and Mason Holt; and grandchildren Shaye Stevens (Tyson), Stephen Stevens, and Anthony Holt; Debi was also blessed to spend the first 2 years of her Great-Grandaughter's life with her, Serenity Maliyah Tyson. Debi also had three wonderful step-kiddos, Melinda "Nina" Jones, Michelle Brouillette (Zakar), Edward "Eddie" Brouillette... and their 9 children.
She is also survived by her mother, Helen (Cargill) McAdams; her sister, Lori (Cargill) Bagby; and her brother, Michael "Mike" Cargill.
Debi's Memorial Service will be on Friday, October 20, 2023 at 11:00am. The service will be at Forest Lawn, Ramon Chapel, 69855 E. Ramon Road, Cathedral City, CA 92234.
