Deborah Lacey

Deborah Lacy went to be with her Lord on the morning of Tuesday, March 9, 2021. She is survived by her son Brandon Lacy, Sister Becky Klix, Brother in law Kris Klix, nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews and cousins. She is preceded in death by her parents and grandparents.

Debbie was born on January 18, 1953 to Dorothy and Robert Lacy at Fort Hood Texas. As the daughter of an Air Force serviceman, she lived Copperas Cove, Bangor Maine, San Antonio, Houston and finally settled in Dripping Springs, TX where she loved living just a few houses from her sister.

In high school, Debbie became a model and was responsible for running a charm and modeling school. She continued modeling for many years and taught classes at the Greater Houston Model Association. She attended the University of Houston for a while and was a member of the Alpha Chi Omega Sorority. In 1976, she earned her Journalism Degree from Texas A&M University and started a career in free-lance writing, public relations and even had the chance to be in several movies.

Debbie loved to research her family tree and was able to trace her family history back many generations. She wrote a Schneider Family history book and it can be found at the Wendish museum library.

She was always dancing to her own tune. She loved to play pinball and was really a true pinball wizard. She had a love for history, politics, geology, casinos, 70’s soul music and Mexican food but most of all she loved the Lord and loved her family and friends.

Anyone who knew me in high School knew that Debbie was my partner in crime, my lover, my buddy, and my best friend forever.  The nature of our relationship never progressed to the point where we were silly enough to get serious, but we had a lifetime friendship that lasted 50 years. I miss her every day, because up to the day she died, we called each other regularly and it always seemed like I had just seen her yesterday, although the last time I saw her pretty face was back in 1994.  I'm sure we'll meet again Deb and St Peter will probably kick us to the corner for shenanigans.  Oh the stories I could tell, including Wall street in NYC, Blue Light Cemetary, bottle rockets, and running around at U of H at all hours of the night.  I love you Deb, and Miss you, Dave
