Deborah Thompson

Deborah Thompson, age 70, died peacefully on January 28, 2023 in San Antonio, Texas following complications of diabetes. Born on June 25, 1952 in Charleston, South Carolina to Dr. and Mrs. Oliver Carrier, she was the middle of five children. She earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in early childhood education in San Antonio, Texas. She lived in several states throughout her life, but eventually settled in Devine, Texas at the end of her life. Debbie was a devoted educator for almost fifty years with a special heart for teaching special education and life skills classes. She was always looking for new and creative ways to teach and engage with her students. A generous daughter, sister, aunt and great aunt, Debbie is survived by her sister, Sharon Weber and husband Matthew; brother, Richard Carrier and wife Tammy; and sister-in-law, Holly Carrier; nephew Jason Weber, wife Sarah and their children Samantha, Annabelle, Riley, Avery, Nathaniel, and Clarabelle; niece, Ashley Chavez, husband Luis and their child Kyler; and niece, Laurie Feilmeier and husband Tom.
Debbie is preceded in death by father, Dr. Oliver Carrier; mother, Mary Carrier; brother, Dr. Gerald Carrier; brother, Robert Carrier; and nephew, Chad Carrier. While she will be deeply mourned by many, we rejoice that she is at peace and with the Lord.
A church service will be held at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Devine, Texas on Friday, March 3, 2023, Rosary at 9 am, Mass at 10 am with a reception to follow.
In lieu of flowers, her family would welcome donations made in Debbie’s honor to Morgan’s Wonderland, an accessibility-focused theme park in San Antonio that is near to Debbie’s heart for special needs children.
