Debra Frances Shifflett, 66, of Ruckersville, Va., passed away at 7:00 pm Wednesday, May 20, 2020 after an extended illness. She spent the last year at home per her request. She was the only child of Ben O. Lam and Dorothy Frances Lam of Stanardsville, Va. and the oldest grandchild of Rev. Ben Lam, Lizzie Lam, and Carmen and Cornelia Meadows. Debbie had a love for life and her dogs were her best friends. You could see Dolly, her mom, and Deb, driving to craft shows and shopping with her boxer riding along for the cruise. They were Tasha, Amber, Morgan, Brindy, and Kinzee. They were quite a team. She also had an eye for sports cars and clean cars. She loved her TR3 and her TR250 Triumphs and still had the TR3. She was a talented singer and was asked to sing in church with her dad, Mac, and also at funerals for friends and family. Her ability to sing was a great talent handed to her from the Lord.

With that being said, she is survived by her dad, mom, and husband, Steve Shifflett; and lots of aunts, uncles and cousins.

A private graveside service will be held at Middle River Cemetery officiated by Brother Rick Savage of Culpeper. Flowers are welcome. Corvid 19 requirements will be expected and followed.

My condolences, Steve. I can't help thinking about the song by the Nittty Gritty Dirt Band called the Precious Jewel:

Way back in the hills, when a boy, I once wandered
Buried deep in her grave lies a girl that I love
She was called from this earth, a jewel for heaven
More precious than diamonds more precious than gold

When a girl of sixteen, we courted each other
She promised someday to become my sweet wife
I bought her the ring to wear on her finger
But the angels they called her to heaven one night

A jewel here on earth, a jewel up in heaven
She'll brighten the kingdom around God's great throne
May the angels have peace, God bless her in heaven
They've broken my heart and they left me to roam

This world has it wealth, its' trials and troubles
Mother earth holds her treasures of diamonds and gold
But it can't hold the soul of one precious jewel
She's resting in peace with the heavenly fold

May the angels have peace, God bless her in heaven
They've broken my heart and they left me to roam
