Debra K. Miller

Born July 22, 1956

Debra K. Miller, age 59, of Wilmington, DE, passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 21, 2016.

Born in Bud, WV on July 22, 1956, Debra was a daughter of the late Walter and Catherine (Mills) Sizemore.

Debra loved cooking and was amazing at it. Her legendary meals included her famous crab cakes, shrimp salad and her mouthwatering soups. Known for her friendly and kind disposition, Debra had the unique ability to make anyone feel at ease. She was an incredible mother and Grammy and her love and devotion to her family was a tribute to the beauty of her heart and soul. Debra’s inspiring presence will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.

She battled the horrible disease of cancer with strength and bravery knowing all the while she would be reunited with her son, J.R. who passed away to be with the Lord nine years ago. Debra was also preceded in death by her parents; beloved husband, Roy D. Miller; sister, Karen Scarabourgh; and brother, Tommy Sizemore. She is survived by her daughter, Amy Parker and her husband, John of Wilmington, DE; brother, Ricky Sizemore of North East, MD; and grandchildren, Bailey, Taylor and McKenzie Parker.

A private memorial service will be held by her daughter at a later time.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Debra’s memory may be made to a cancer charity of the donor’s choice.

  • It is with a heavy heart ,do I say goodbye to a very wonderful friend and co-worker. She and I shared a love of reading and frequently exchanged books we had read. She will be sorely missed.

  • Amy , my heart goes out to you and your family. My family and I are sincerely sorry for your loss. Love Ya

  • Amy, your mom isn’t gone ~ she’s just moved to another plane & you can not she her. But she sees all of you & one day you all will be united. Your mother lives on for your beautiful daughters, thru YOU. YOU are a testimony of her huge capacity for love, for family and for beauty. I know that you’re Christian or I wouldn’t say this ~ I know (& have read) a book called “90 Minutes in Heaven” (they also made a movie, but book is always better), it has COMFORTED SO MANY PEOPLE all over the world & in different languages, who have lost people they’ve loved dearly. MANY people, myself included, have said it had transformed their life. It’s a true story of a man who was in a car wreck & was CLINICALLY dead for 90 minutes & returned to life to tell his experience in heaven. After 30+ operations & rehabilitations, for 20 yrs,. he’s been traveling all over the world sharing his experience of Heaven. It’s easy reading & moves real fast right from the beginning. I hope that it will bring you & yours comfort, girl. I love you, Lori.

  • Amy and Family,
    The Lord took a very special flower to his garden, he needed more sunshine and laughter, so he chose Debbie. I have know Debbie for many years. When she came to work at Highborne her and I would chat
    about old times and do cross word puzzles. Debbie was a terrific woman and I had great respect for her.
    Her laughter was contagious. Her true love was her children, grandchildren and her family. Debbie you are now pain free and with your son JR. Hugs and kisses. You have showed love and affection to many of us left behind. Till we meet again. RIP Sending condolences to the family and friends.

  • Amy and Ricky,

    Mom and I are so heartbroken to hear about Debbie. We are truly sorry for your incredible loss. I pray God gives you and your family comfort in this difficult time. I am certain that she is at peace and in the loving arms of her family that went before her. We had many great times over the years when she lived in North East. Mom is very sadden that she has lost two of her best friends who were amazing ladies. It makes it easier for her to deal with knowing that Debbie and Karen are once again reunited and that someday she will see them again. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
