In Memoriam: Debby Flynn, Beloved NRB Staff Member

Debby FlynnDebby Flynn, who faithfully and joyfully served the Lord through NRB and the NRB Network over the past six years, recently went home to be with the Lord after a lengthy battle with cancer.

A memorial service for Debby was held earlier this month in Manassas, VA, where friends, colleagues, and loved ones remembered her faithfulness, her joyful attitude, and her loving and persevering spirit.

“Debby was (and is!) a woman of faith, whose life lived out before a watching world was marked by confidence in her dear Savior,” noted NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright.

“Debby was an incredible sister in Christ, and we miss her personally and professionally. She inspired us all with her diligent work ethic, even at the height of her battle with cancer,” added Troy Miller, President & CEO of NRB Network, where Debby served as the Accounting Clerk.

Continuing, Miller noted how Debby loved her job and the people she worked with, but more so how she loved being a part of the work of the Kingdom.

“She understood that her role, even though it was in the back office, was having an impact on people's lives for Christ and she did it with excellence,” Miller shared. “But, what I will forever be impacted by most was Debby’s faith.  I spoke with her a few days before she went home, and she was so full of joy.  Debby’s faith in the Lord remained fixed.  I will forever be built up by her steadfast faith in our Lord."

Debby is survived by her loving husband, Buddy Flynn; her parents, Ann and Raymond Reaves; one sister, Sherry Price; one brother, Richard Reaves; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A selection of comments from NRB and NRB staff members can be found below:

“It was my privilege to work with Debby at NRB. She had a great sense of humor and was always quick to share a word of encouragement or to pray for you. She will be greatly missed at NRB.”

Mary Montemayor, NRB Administrative Assistant

“I had the great privilege of being Debby’s supervisor at NRB for the past 6 years. Debby always had a great attitude and never complained. I could always count on her to fulfill tasks assigned to her with excellence. She had a joyful spirit that honored and glorified the Lord.”

Mike Kisha, NRB Vice President of Finance

“I worked with Debby at NRB. She was a beautiful and genuine person with a heart for God. She will be deeply missed.”

Tina Givens, NRB Network Marketing Manager

“I was so sad to hear of Debby's passing but also happy that she is now resting comfortably. She will be missed by her NRB family!”

Beth Wakefield, NRB Manager of Convention Services

“Debby was an incredible sister in Christ, and we miss her personally and professionally. She inspired us all with her diligent work ethic, even at the height of her battle with cancer. Debby loved her job and the people she worked with, but more so she loved being a part of the work of the Kingdom. She understood that her role, even though it was in the back office, was having an impact on people’s lives for Christ and she did it with excellence. But, what I will forever be impacted by most was Debby’s faith. I spoke with her a few days before she went home, and she was so full of joy.  We would have all loved to have seen God reach down to heal Debby’s cancer, and so would have she, but He chose not to.  Even so, Debby’s faith in the Lord remained fixed. She looked at death, and saw through its transparency to see her Lord and Savior on the other side. I will forever be built up by her steadfast faith in our Lord. ‘O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?’ They have been swallowed up by the victory of Christ. Thank you, Lord, for allowing Debby to be a part of our lives. We look forward with hope and joy to that day of wonderful reunion!”

Troy Miller, President & CEO of NRB Network
