Debra Sue Grubbs was born January 11, 1958, in Bainbridge, Ga., the daughter of Joe, Sr. & Mattie Mae Lewis Grubbs. She attended Bainbridge High School and lived her entire life in Decatur County. In 1992, Debra married Herman Mills. She was a member of Eldorendo Holiness Church.

Coming from a large family, Debra knew the value of “the more the merrier” and enjoyed every minute spent with her family and friends. She didn’t really know how to cook for a few so there was always plenty to share. Debra canned vegetables, loved to fish, and spoiled her grandchildren every chance she got. Travel plans were constantly on her mind; if you said “adventure”, Debra said, “I’m in!”

Survivors include her husband of 29 years, Herman E. Mills; her children, Dusty & Lauren Brogdon of Cataula, Ga., Rusty & Brandi Brogdon of Climax, and Jason & Bridget Mills of Wewahitchka, Fla.; her grandchildren, Jalyn, Erin, Carley, Chloe, Maddie, Walker, Drake, and Mason; her siblings, Marion (Lennis) Grubbs, Bobby (Jane) Grubbs, Jackie (Diane) Grubbs, David (Linda) Grubbs, Joe (Elaine) Grubbs, Mary Williams, and Rita (Rawleigh) Furney; and a host of extended family. In addition to her parents, Debra was preceded in death by her brothers, Donald Grubbs and Danny Grubbs.
