Debra "Debbie" Ann Gonzalez, 65, of Indianapolis, passed away on Tuesday, May 30, 2023.
Debbie was born in Indianapolis, IN on June 27, 1957 to Benny and Georgetta Blankenship. Debbie was fun. She loved dancing and when she was younger went out every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. She enjoyed going to the casino and playing bingo. Debbie was an amazing person. Her heart had infinite love to give, she considered her best friend's kids her own, and her grandchildren, also her own grandchildren. She would move heaven and earth for her loved ones, and stand in to be what they needed; be that a father figure, confidant, cheerleader, or kick in the pants, Debbie was there for you. She always went to bat for her loved ones, even if it put her in harms way. Debbie was so strong, a true Superwoman, who endured so much and still came out loving and compassionate. She was sweet but sassy, and she will be greatly missed.
Debbie is survived by her granddaughter Tara (David Hughes) Johnson; her great-granddaughter Chloe James: her lifelong best friends Carol Arriaga Penaloza and Joann Huerta; bonus son John; bonus grandchildren Juanita, AJ, and Ana; her nephew Benji; and several great-nieces and nephews; and too many bonus great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren to name.
Debbie is preceded in passing by her sons Wayne Stephey and James Blankenship; her parents Benny and Georgetta Blankenship; and her sister Portia.
Services for Debbie will be 6 PM, Friday, June 2, 2023 at Fountain Square Cremation & Funeral Services. Visitation will be from 2 PM until the hour of service.
