Debra “Debbie” Lynn Young age 59 of Mena, Arkansas passed away Friday, November 27, 2020. Debbie was born on November 24, 1961 in Tucson, Arizona to Wallace Willard Reid and Darlene Ann Basgall.

When she passed, loved ones and her “golden” dogs were with her in her home. She was a private person, but her friends say she “touched hundreds of lives”, and she was a “spectacular person who kept it all underneath”. She really loved her family, her dogs, and her online “dog mom” friends. She will be dearly missed.

Debbie is survived by her brother, Scott Reid and wife Amanda of Mena; nephews, Jacob Reid, Aaron Reid, and Willard Reid; step-niece, Summer Venable; step-nephew, Daniel Venable; numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins; and her dogs, Taylor, Paisley, and Holly.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Wallace Reid and Darlene Basgall.

A graveside service will be held on Wednesday, December 2, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. at Owens Chapel Cemetery in Acorn, Arkansas with Reverend Lamar Austin officiating. Services are under the direction of Beasley-Wood Funeral Home of Mena.

Considering recent health concerns, the graveside service will replace a traditional church service. Those attending are urged to wear masks and practice social distancing.
