OBITUARY: Debra McLean


Mrs. Debra McLean passed away Tuesday, March 29, 2022, in Columbia, Tennessee, she was 67 years old.

She was born to the late Harry Walker and Ann Marie Blake in Trenton, Michigan on March 21, 1955.

Debra was a strong, passionate, creative woman. Everyone knew her as “Mom”. A term that lets you know that she was a very special lady in everyone’s heart. Debra had a huge heart for others; always had open arms and open doors for anyone that stepped inside her home, that included any furry little critters that needed some TLC. Her sweet nature had a way of showing itself through her cooking, especially her sweet treats. “Heart of an Angel, Soul of a Viking”

Debra was a gifted, crafty person who had mastered the art of her talent. She could make anything with her own two hands, whether it was making jewelry, sewing, or embroidery. She took a lot of pride in the things she could do. Not only did she enjoy being creative, but she also looked forward to decorating and spending time with friends and family for every holiday. Debra’s larger-than-life personality will be greatly missed but never forgotten.

The loved one’s left to cherish her memory are her husband: Mark McLean, children: Mike (Julie) Lazarz, Eric (Brandy) Lazarz, Majestia (Jesus) Torres, Margeaux (Ronnie) Embrey, Melonie Comstock; grandchildren: Alyssa, Hunter, Braden, Brookelyn, Faith, Sophia, Madalyn, Esabella, Luke, Blaine, Annaleigh, Bryce, Lucy, Walker; great-grandchildren: Morgan and Charlotte; siblings: Gail Kincaid, Jerry Walker, David Beeler.
