Deborah “Debbie” Ann (Bates) Fishburn, 60 of Indianapolis, passed from this world on Thursday May 31, 2018. She was born to William Thomas and Dorothy Pauline, (Pritchett) Bates, both of Indianapolis, on Sunday June 9, 1957.
Debbie loved spending time with her family. When her children were younger, she would take them to the summer festival at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church. She also loved going to midnight masses. One thing that was at her core was being welcoming to others. She never met a stranger. She was very kind and nurturing to all she met. She was a great cook, and her chili, ham & Cheese potatoes, and anything comfort were welcomed treats by family and friends.
Debbie was preceded in death by her parents and her brother Donald Bates.
She is survived by her brother Robert Bates, her 3 children, Amy (husband Steve) Evans of Greenwood, Brandon (wife Sarah) Fishburn of Indianapolis, and Brett Fishburn of Indianapolis, 6 grandchildren Tanner, Katie, Wyatt, Liam, Charlie, Remi, and great grandchild Khy.
She is missed by all who loved and knew her.
