Debbie Tygerlady Paris Conoff born to John and Delores Conoff from Garden City, Michigan, passed away at her Spanaway, Washington home December 17th, 2022. Debbie celebrated her 72nd trip around the Sun on November 26th. Preceded in death by both of her parents, her legacy lives on with her daughters Danielle, Mary-Kay, Jolene, and Rebecca, grandchildren Joseph, Alyssa, Justin, Jordan, Logan, and Harper, and one great-grandchild Chloe.
Debbie studied Gerontology and Psychology at the University of South Florida, graduating with Honors in 1999. She used her education background to become an Activities Director for assisted living facilities. An avid outdoorswoman, Debbie enjoyed hunting, fishing, and homesteading. Her hobbies included gaming, gardening, quilting, as well as, knitting and needlepoint. A creative at heart, she fused her skills with quilting and pattern making to create her own “hippie style” dresses from colorful quilt block patterns with embroidered accents that she would wear to various music festivals.
She was never one to back down from a problem and always stood up for what she believed in. She dreamed big and always wanted the best for her girls. May her memory live on in the hearts of those that she touched and inspired.
