ForeverMissed

Deborah was born in Luverne, AL to John C and Christine (Holmes) Hurley on January 17, 1960. She married her first love William Earl Rayborn. Deborah and Earl were known to be a spontaneous, fun loving and adventure taking couple. Soon the two of them became three with the birth of their son Jeffrey Earl Rayborn. She worked in retail for many years before she became a pipe-liner. It is rumored that “There is nothing finer than a pipe-liner”.  
Deborah is preceded in death by her parents, JC & Christine (Holmes) Hurley, brother Wayne (Charlotte) Hurley and husband William Earl Rayborn.

Deborah is survived by her companion Tommy Tatom: Son Jeffrey Earl Rayborn: Brothers Kenney and David Hurley and a multitude of nieces, nephews, cousins and amazing friends.
The family wishes to extend our sincere thanks and gratitude to Dr. Pat Walker, Foster Drug Company, the nurses and staff of Crenshaw Community Hospital and to all of the friends and loved ones who have been such an amazing support system.
In lieu of funeral services an online memorial has been dedicated to her eternal memory. This tribute will allow friends and loved ones to share their own personal stories, memories, photos and even music.

I had the pleasure of meeting Deborah on many occasions over the years. It was always a beautiful sight to see how Jeff and Deb were not just Mother and Son, but best friends. From dinners and BBQs to tramway excursions. I remember staying in Luverne with Jeff at Deborah's home. I remember having a great bonfire and party outside her home into the wee hours of the night having a beer and eating food on the grill. We went one day to the most happening place in Luverne back then, the water well, lol. It was a lot of fun. we then drove to Panama city beach and enjoyed ocean walks and sunset dinners near the ocean. Deborah was always a joy to be around. She absolutely loved spending time with her best friend and son Jeff. We will keep dancing and will always think about you when a country song comes on. With love, Alexander Dowell.

Debra has been friends with my family wayyy back! My daddy and her husband were best friends. That’s been a long time ago. Always friendly and kind words. But I would have to say the best time I had with her was working at the Bill’s Dollar Store lol. Cindy (Holley) Lester, Kim Dillon, And Karen Kelly also. Needless to say there was never a dull moment at the Dollar Store! Hard worker and just plain out fun to be around. Not to mention her and Tommy T always cutting up! Fun she was. RIP Debra, you will be missed by many ❤️ (Tracey Jordan)
