Debra K. "Debbie" Rash

January 31, 1957 - December 9, 2015

Debra Kay Rash, “Debbie,” of Virginia Beach, entered rest until the Lord comes on Wednesday, December 9, 2015 at the age of 58 years.

Debbie and her husband Jeffery were married on March 28, 1981 and on May 2, 1981. She was predeceased by her parents, May and Willard Herman. She is survived by her husband Jeffery Rash; children: Jessica; Joe Tabanan, and their children Josiah, Jacob, Jyla; Kayde and Justin Mendoza and their children Kayden, Brenden, Jorden; and Cecil Robtoy and his son (Raighne and his mother Shelle); and her brother Cecil Herman.

She was a member of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church who gave entirely of herself to her faith, family, and friends.

Celebration of Life for Debbie will be held on Sunday, December 13, 2015 at Altmeyer Funeral Home (5792 Greenwich Rd. Virginia Beach, VA) at 4:00 PM.

Many people in the community would recognize Debbie with her station wagon and the many hours she spent delivering food three times a week to families that would have done without otherwise. In light of her love for helping her community and trying to make our world a better place for her grandchildren, please make any donations in her name to the Community Service Fund at White Memorial Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Portland, ME. Contributions to this fund may be made in her memory at

To my dear, sweet, loving wife, “Ebbe Dey,”

From the first time we met we became the best of friends. That friendship blossomed into a loving relationship. Your family accepted me in from day one and became my best friends as well.

All the adventures, experiences, and memories we shared I will treasure forever.

I am so proud of your life; your relationship with God, your love of cooking & doing things for others, patience, understanding, and forgiveness, especially of me, our children, grandchildren, and friends. Your neverending determination and will to persevere through sickness and disappointment with the face of beauty and love. For all the love you created will be with us now and forever. You’re the Best! Final Answer!

Your loving hubby,

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
