Deborah Denise Brent was born on October 15, 1959, in Pineville, Louisiana to Calvin Ray and Virginia (Pace) Gray. She had worked as a waitress at the Town Café in Centerville for the past twenty years until her health began to fail. This, however, provided Deborah with some much needed time to spend with her grandchildren, whom she loved dearly. Family was extremely important to Deborah, and she had a large one. She always made sure that each member always knew how much they were loved. Deborah had lived in Centerville for the past twenty-four years, coming from Willis. She passed away in Bryan, Texas on October 4, 2017.
