Obituary: Binschus, Debra M.

Age 54

BINSCHUS, Debra M. (Audie) (Age 54) On Friday, November 30, 2012, God called Debbie home to be in His Kingdom after her two-year long battle with lung cancer. Debbie was born September 8, 1958 in Saco, Maine, to Joan and Renald Audie. She moved to Spokane when she was two months old and grew up loving and enjoying her brother, Shawn, sister, Barb, and many cousins and other family members. She graduated from Rogers High School in 1976 and is in the process of receiving her Honorary Bachelor’s Degree from Wahington State University. In 1987, Debbie married Jack Binschus and had three blessed sons, Jeremiah and Jonathan and Devin. They were her heart and soul. Debbie was a pre-school teacher for ten years and loved it. Once she had kids of her own, she found her real passion and started working for 7-11 Inc., in 1988. She worked for them for 22 years, managing stores all over the northwest. Although Debbie is gone, she will never be forgotten. She touched so many lives, it is a testament to her that 25 of those people were in the room with her when she passed. She is survived by her sons, Jeremiah (and wife, Lee), Jonathan and Devin; Jon’s best friend, Bethany (not Brittany); her mom, Joan; sister, Barbara (and nephew Patrick and wife, Lynsy); brother Shawn (and wife, Peggy); her aunt Ammagene (and her cousins and their families, Troy, Leslie and Scott); her BFF CarlaJean (and her family); her granddog, Pennie-Poo, that gave her so much joy. Debbie is preceded in death by her uncle Harry, aunt June and her dog Muggsy. The family would like to thank everyone for their love and prayers through this difficult time. Donations can be made to Cancer Patient Care at Deaconess Hospital (509-456-0446). So many thanks for the care of Dr. Lund, Sandy, Jeanne, Katherine and the rest of the staff or Debbie’s life would’ve been much shorter. Debbie’s life will be celebrated Thursday, December 6 at 6pm at Family of Faith Community Church at 712 W. Nora in Spokane, WA. She will be cremated and her sons will put her in mud puddles so whenever anyone wants to visit her, they can just run through a puddle when it’s raining.
