Debra (Debi)’s Obituary Debra Kay “Debi” Beck-Trueblood, age 57 of Anderson and formerly of Elwood, passed away unexpectedly in her sleep on February 13, 2019 at her residence, and God gained another Heavenly Angel. She was born September 5, 1961 in Elwood, the daughter of Paul “Ed” and Judy (Blaylock) Beck. Debra was a 1979 graduate of Elwood Community High School, and attended the nursing program at Indiana University in Kokomo. She graduated from Ball State University in Muncie with a Bachelor’s Degree in nursing. Debi was passionate about nursing and formerly worked as a registered nurse at St. Vincent Hospitals in Elwood, Carmel, and Indianapolis. As someone who was always caring for others, she also worked in several nursing facilities in the area. She married Howard “Leon” Trueblood on December 27, 1991 and they were blessed with 27 years of marriage together. Debra was currently working for Amazon Corporation in the Whitestown Distribution Center as a product picker at the facility for the past 5 years.

Debi was also an avid NASCAR fan and especially liked Dale Earnhardt, Jr. She was known for taking pictures of everyone and everything, and she enjoyed connecting with friends and family on social media with her interesting picture posts.
