Our hearts are with the entire Luther family. We are deeply sorry for your loss. We are so very grateful for all the wonderful memories with Debbie. For us, it started with Little League. From there, we looked forward to her smile and at least a short conversation when we'd bump into Debbie at school or while out and about in town. She made the world a better place. She touched our hearts and will be missed.

Deb Luther was a classmate of mine. We graduated in the class of 1967. I know her and Buddy, and their company was always enjoyed at our many class reunions. Deb was a kind soul, always with a warm Smile and willing to help in any way she could. She and Buddy shared many years of memories together, and I send condolences to him And his family. It is my prayer the pain will heal in Gods time. Take good care Buddy. Angela (Balzano) Ellis

Buddy, I am so sorry for your loss of Debbie, your sweetheart for many years. I love the picture you selected for her obituary. It really captures her nature as a self-assured, loving and caring woman. I will never forget how formidable she was on the ball field. No matter the outcome, she was always gracious and friendly. She will be missed by many.
