In loving memory of

Debra Marie Givler
August 21, 1962 - December 21, 2021

Debra Marie (Moore) Givler was born Aug. 21, 1962, to James Richard "Dick" Moore and Delores (Uttecht) in Norfolk. She graduated from Norfolk Senior High in 1980 and moved to Phoenix later that year, transferring her employment with Arby's. She also worked in management with Walgreens for several years. Deb met and married Chris Givler, the love of her life, Oct. 26, 1991, in Phoenix, where they had their sons, Jerric and Justin. Chris passed away unexpectedly on Feb. 7, 2000, in a work related accident. Deb had a great love of Arizona, her cabin in Pinetop, fishing, camping and 4-wheeling. She also loved volunteering at a local animal shelter from where she adopted many of her beloved rescue dogs. She loved spending time with her two sons and shared their passion for sports, especially the Arizona Coyotes hockey team. Deb was one of the generous giving persons one could ever meet.

Survivors are her sons, Jerric of Phoenix and Justin of San Diego, Calif.; mother Delores Patocka of Norfolk; brother Dan (Nancy) Moore of Norfolk; sister Diane Moore of Omaha; stepsister Hayley (Tony) Jelinek of Kearney; step brother Russell (Michelle) Patocka of Phoenix; and extended family and friends. She was predeceased by her spouse, Chris Givler; father Dick Moore; stepfather Ronald Patocka; in-laws Gerald "Pops" and Jean Givler; and numerous extended family.

A Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday January 11, 2022 at 2pm at Hansen Mortuary 8314 N. 7th Street, Phoenix, Arizona 85020. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials to local animal shelters.

"Deb took us and our boys as her own. We spent countless days and hours in the woods, four wheeling and playdate dinners at the cabin. We will always think of her in these activities and know she is with us. "

"Deb was our wonderful neighbor for 20 years. Bill and I watched her raise her boys with love and care. Our grandchild loved to go over to their house and play. She always had a rescued dog that she took everywhere with her. We are going to miss her so much. Brenda Swan "
