In Memoriam: Debbie West of LegacyTV

Debbie WestDebra Lou Wright (“Debbie”) West, Vice President for Affiliations at LegacyTV, went to be with the Lord on Saturday.

West, who was married to LegacyTV President Jim West, had been suffering from a bad cough and cold throughout last week and fell unconscious Friday as she was being taken to the Emergency Room. She was later diagnosed with severe pneumonia and sepsis.

“She was the love of my life for 42 years of marriage,” noted Jim West, who also serves the chairman for the NRB TV Committee.  “It will be a great loss to all who loved her. She can number her friends in the hundreds, if not thousands. She was a special lady who will be greatly missed. But we firmly believe ‘to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.’”

A Celebration of Life memorial service for Debbie will take place at First Baptist Church in New Port Richey, FL, this coming Saturday at 11 a.m. Debbie is survived by her parents, two sisters, husband, two children, and four grandchildren.
