A celebration of life was held on Jan. 17 for Deborah Louise Cline, 39, of Visalia.

She was born in Eugene, Ore. where she was raised; thereafter she spent the remainder of her life in California. As a young adult she spent many years taking care of the elderly in nursing homes. The decision to go to nursing school was a turning point in her life. She was a skilled professional in her career as a nurse and gave so much of herself to her patients.

During the past three years as a public health nurse in Visalia she continued to grow professionally and spiritually. She cherished her precious pets, Ben, Peanut, Rocky and Jimbo.

Her years with us were much too short.

She will always be loved and missed by her mother and stepfather, Jean and Carl; her sister, Elaine; her grandmother, Dorothy; her fianc/e, Chriss; her stepsister and brother, Bobbie and Wayne; and her aunts, cousins, and dear friends. We are thankful that she is surrounded and protected by God's love for her.

Donations in her memory may be made to Hospice of Tulare County, 900 W. Oak St., Visalia, CA 93291 or Visalia Park and Recreation Foundation, FIDO Project, Box 1032, Visalia, CA 93279.

On-line condolences may be made to www.smithfamilychapel.com. Arrangements are under the direction of Smith Family Chapel, Exeter.
