Debra Ann Hurst

April 28, 1960 — January 9, 2023

Debra Ann Hurst

Debra Ann Hurst, 62, was born on April 28, 1960, to Laurie Raphiel and Orin Dale Anderson.

Debbie had the auto immune disease Lupus, which she succumbed to on January 9, 2023. On October 22, 1988.

Debbie married Richard Shane Hurst. One year later to the date they were sealed in the Ogden Temple. Debbie and Shane have a son, Andrew, and his wife Angelica. Debbie has four siblings, Novetta Demillard (Laramie, Wyoming) Gary, wife Doreen (Huntsville) Larry(deceased) Donna Sherman(deceased).

Even from a young age Debbie always had her nose in a book, that still carries on today. When we were dating, we could be found in the foothills hiking around. She likes fishing and any outdoor activities. Debbie learned a lot of those things from her dad who was a botanist and taught biology in high school before MS took him. We really enjoyed going to national parks and spending time there. Bryce’s was one of our favorites, until Debbie’s health put the stops to that. We discovered cruising on the open seas. We did two cruises and were planning a third when covid hit the world.

Debbie was a very good cook, she loved to make goodies for the holidays. My favorite being penuche. She was always looking for a new recipe to try out. Debbie enjoyed watching her cooking channels for that reason. She loved gardening vegetables. By late February she would be getting heirloom tomatoes and every spring veggie sprouting.

Debbie started her clerical career in Provo and moved to Ogden where she got on at Ogden Regional medical where she worked for 35years. Debbie made a lot of eternal friends while at Ogden Regional and she also passed away there.

Debbie, we love you very much and we will miss you dearly.
