Deborah Jean “Good ‘Ole” Warrington, 60, of Neopit, started her journey to the Spirit World on Dec. 11, 2015. She was born on Nov. 19, 1955, to the late Kenneth and Lillian (Mackiorowski) Warrington in Chicago.

Deb was a good person at heart. She loved many things in life especially her children and grandchildren, family and friends, and loved framing them on the wall. Throughout life she was referred to as “Good ‘Ole Deb” because she liked to raise heck with everyone who passed her by. The younger generation called her “DebbaDo.”

Deb was a very kind-hearted person, always willing to help out whenever and wherever needed. She loved her nature walks and rides in the woods and most of all White City Hill, the hill she grew up on, lived and fulfilled many fond memories. She’ll always be remembered in more ways than one.
