Jan. 14, 1958 — Nov. 3, 2018
Debra Sue Miyar was born in Astoria, Oregon, to William Charles and Vesta Jane (Brons) Eggleston on Jan. 14, 1958.
Debbi, as she called herself, had a very independent spirit and would set her sights on something, and with hard work and planning would achieve what she set out to do. At 16, she had her first job, and then, when she graduated from high school, she announced that she would be going on a trip to tour Europe.
Such was Debbi’s life. One could say that it was this willful independent sense that defined her life, and how she could set her mind to something and achieve it. She attended college while working and raising Charlie. Debbi went on to graduate from Linfield College with a bachelor’s degree in international business. Before retiring, Debbi worked at Costco for 20 years.
Debbi had a strong belief in God and love for Jesus. While she was able, she attended Astoria Christian Church.
Debbi departed this life surrounded by the family she loved on Nov. 3, 2018 at 60 years of age. Debbi was preceded in death by her father, William, and nephew, Scottie Earls.
She is survived by her son, Charles Eggleston (Sarah), of Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington; her mother, Vesta Eggleston, of Warrenton; her three sisters, Joni Osborn, of Astoria, Vicki Earls, of Warrenton, and Tami Gilliatt, of Lynchburg, Virginia; and her two granddaughters, Ryann and Jordan Eggleston, of Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington. There are also four nephews, three nieces and a host of people whose life she touched, who will miss her dearly.
Debbi’s cremated remains will be interred in a private ceremony at the gravesite of the family plot at Ocean View Cemetery in Warrenton.
The public is invited to celebrate Debbi’s life at a memorial service that is scheduled at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 10, 2018 at the Astoria Christian Church, 1151 Harrison Ave., Astoria, Oregon. A reception will follow the service.
In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that memorial donations be made in Debbi’s name to either the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital or the Lower Columbia Hospice.
