Deborah Starr died Aug. 18, 2011, of liver failure, surrounded by family and loving friends. She was 48.

She was born Sept. 11, 1962, in McMinnville Ore. She graduated from Taft High School in 1980. She later received an associate degree from Central Oregon Community College in Bend, Ore.

On Nov. 18, 1989, she married Tim Middlemiss, divorcing in 1991. Debbie was a very social and charismatic person. She could walk into a room knowing no one and walk out with a room full of friends. She loved being active and on the go. Family was important to her and she enjoyed time with them watching football, going hunting, and fishing. Debbie loved the outdoors. Helping family, friends, or just people in need was a favorite pastime.

Debbie will be sorely missed by her family as well as her many, many friends. 

Survivors include her son, Douglas Middlemiss of Portland; her mother, Mildred Starr of Salem; brothers Michael of Gresham and George of Salem; and her numerous friends.

Her father, Douglas Starr, died earlier.

There will be a celebration of life at 1 p.m. on Sept. 17 at the Salem Elks Lodge, 2336 Turner Road, S.E. Salem (across from the Salem airport).

Food and refreshments will be available.
