December 1, 1957 ~ September 13, 2018

Deborah Frances Burrell Ryan, 60, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, September 13, 2018, in Great Falls, Montana. She was born on December 1, 1957, in Ogden, Utah, to Carl Burrell and Frances Wilkes Fuller.

She married Ricky Lynn Ryan August 9, 1991, and on the same day she became a mother to: Jared (Heather) Ryan, Holly (Brian) Reidel, and Alyssa (Josh) Petronella. She and Rick soon welcomed to their family two daughters, Emily Ryan and Kaitlin Ryan. They were later sealed in the Ogden Temple.

Debbie was known throughout her life to be loving, forgiving, generous, and kind. She was independent and worked hard wherever she was needed. The focus of her life has always been family. Her devotion to each of those she loved was unconditional. She has a strong testimony of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and has served honorably in many positions throughout her life including as a missionary to the Portland Oregon Mission.

Her last gift that she gave in this life was as an organ donor to unknown recipients. We hope they know how lucky they are to have part of our beloved Debbie.

She is survived by her eternal companion, Rick; her mother; her children; three sisters: Lynne (Terry) Bexell, Judy (Robert) Young, and Pam (Bob) Murray; and three brothers: David (Becky) Burrell, Wayne (Rachelle) Burrell, and Greg (Donna) Fuller; and her grandchildren: Tory Ryan, TJ Ryan, Marshall Reidel, Brilee Reidel, Carter Petronella, Quinn Petronella, Chloe Buhler and Jaxon Buhler.

She was preceded in death by her dad, O. Kay Fuller; and a brother, Jeff Fuller.

There will be a viewing on Wednesday, September 19, 2018, from 9:15 to 10:45 a.m., followed by the funeral service at 11 a.m. at the Ben Lomond 10th Ward Chapel, located at 3350 N. 1050 E., North Ogden, UT. Interment will be at the Ben Lomond Cemetery in North Ogden, Utah.

Arrangements entrusted to Myers Ogden Mortuary.
