Deb continued her education and graduated from Grand Canyon College in 2010 receiving her BA degree.She has been employed at the Lake Havasu Regional Medical Center for the past 5 years. Deb was recently promoted to clinical nurse supervisor of the med/surgical unit on the second floor. She loved her career caring for patients and working with the staff. Deb was driven to be successful and has accomplished great goals in her short life of 23 years. What a shame to have lost such a wonderful person with such great love and compassion. She had so much more to give if not for this tragic event.Deb was a very loving and devoted mother to her two children Kaia Rose Diez and Cole Anthony Diez. She spent time with her sister doing many things together with their children. They walked them in the channel, played at the park and went to the bounce. Whenever she would pick up the kids from the baby sitter when she walked in they yelled mommy in joy and ran to her. Deb would get down on the floor and play with them until she wore them or herself out. Every Friday friends came to her house to visit and play games so she wouldn't have to take them to a sitter. Deb and the children loved going to the beach to swim and play in the sand and also go boating and feeding the ducks.Deborah leaves behind her beautiful daughter Kaia Rose 4, and her handsome son Cole Anthony 14 mo.
