Debra Ann (Dozah) Mefford

October 9, 1953 ~ December 19, 2018 (age 65)

 Debra Anne “Dozah” Mefford, age 65, passed away peacefully with her family
 at her side from complications of Cancer, on Wednesday, December 19, 2018,
 at her home in Powell, Wyoming. She was born October 9, 1953, in Greely,
 Colorado, to Eugene “Coach” and Patricia (Golden) Dozah.
 She was a 1972 graduate of Powell High School excelling in Swimming under
 the direction of her dad, Coach Dozah. She graduated from the Sheridan
 College Dental Hygiene program and loved her work and her patients for
 nearly forty years that she worked in Powell. Her true passion was helping
 people and she thrived as an EMT for the Powell Hospital for over 15 years.
 She had a stellar knack for problem solving under pressure and was a natural
 leader which made her an adored co-worker and caretaker.
 She married Gary Mefford on August 14, 1976, in a typical animated Mefford /
 Dozah celebration and they always affectionately referred to each other as
 “my best friend”. Debbie’s favorite place to be was in the mountains, riding
 her horses and the smell of sage after a fresh rain. She passionately loved
 animals, saved many strays, and adored to be outside beautifying her yard or
 walking through the fields with her dogs. She also loved her coffee, red wine,
 baking homemade bread and kitchen gadgets.
 Although she liked her alone time, she cared the most about her friends and
 family and found great joy in giving gifts in which she was always
 extraordinarily thoughtful. She had an uncanny ability to reach people in a
 deep way and help them through the toughest of times.
 She and the love of her life, Gary, had two beautiful children, Kassidy Mefford
 Love and Paul Mefford. Her children were the light of her life as well as her
 two grandsons, Maverick Paul Love and Indio Gunnison Love. She took in
 several of her children’s friends as if they were her own and they opened up to
 her like a trusted companion, including Denny Sullivan, who she considered
 like a son. She was an avid football fan and loved watching the Denver
 Broncos and the Wyoming Cowboys with her husband Gary, sister Denise,
 Sister-in-law Maureen, cherished Denny, and son-in-law Benny Love. She is
 survived by her husband, Gary; her sister, Denise (Maureen) Dozah of Casper;
 daughter Kassidy (Benny) Love and grandkids Maverick and Indio Love as well
 as her two dogs, Zoey and Bear and horses Onyx and Bella. She is preceded in
 death by her parents Pat and Gene Dozah, and her son, Paul Mefford. Family,
 friends, and others whose lives Debbie touched are invited to a celebration of                                                                                                                            her life which will be held on January 4, 2019 at 2:00pm at the Union Presbyterian Church.
