Deborah Susan Carroll

October 22, 1954 - September 18, 2021

Deborah Susan (Osborn) Carroll, 66, passed away peacefully, September 18, 2021, in Virginia Beach, VA alongside family.  Debbie was born to James Eugene Osborn and Elizabeth Osborn Jones in Bristol, VA on October 22, 1954.  She was a graduate of Sullivan East High School and enjoyed her years at King College.

Debbie blessed the world with many talents using her skills in administration to work in Bell Telephone in the 1970’s, as a receptionist for a dentist office that later led her to becoming a dental assistant in the 1980’s, a columnist for a newspaper in West Point, VA, an over-the-road team truck driver keeping log records for Roger’s Trucking in the 1990’s, retired as a church secretary for Fairmount Presbyterian Church through the turn of the century, and she was always eager to help family and friends write letters or file income tax returns when called upon.  Some of her earlier hobbies included traveling, painting, writing, and enjoying “game time” with family and friends playing cards or board games.  In more recent years she has enjoyed online gaming and focusing on her beloved pets.  Always her family has been a key aspect of her life.  

Preceded by Debbie’s passing was her husband Jerry W. Carroll; her father, Gene Osborne; her mother, Elizabeth Jones; and her loved grandparents.  Left to cherish Debbie’s memories are her daughter Shannon; her sons Scott and his wife Joni and son James his wife and Suella; her grandchildren Jay, Jareth, Hunter, Alura, Brody, and Asher; and many of her cousins, aunts, uncles, dear family friends and young ones that called her “Grammy”, and her beloved best-friend Rusty (dog).  Debbie was rooted in her Christian faith.  She loved her church families, and she was blessed to share time with her daughter in Virginia Beach and ask for membership at Discovery Church as well as spend time with her son, James, when he lived in Mechanicsville, VA attending Truth Baptist Church.     

Debbie loved her family near and far.  A visitation will be held from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm on Sunday, September 26, 2021, at Weaver’s Funeral Home, 630 Locust Street, Bristol, TN  37620.  A Celebration of Life will be held from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm on October 2, 2021, at Discovery Church at 4881 Euclid Road, Virginia Beach, VA  23462.  The family sends special thanks to the support of Sentra’s Nursing Staff for their loving care when Debbie needed her most and to Altmeyer Funeral Homes for their support in her final journey.
