Debbie Newland Perdue, 64, of Quinton, Virginia, passed away Monday, Oct. 28, 2019.

Debbie was a woman who found joy in decorating her home with flowers and cow knickknacks, taking trips to the mountains and caring for children, which she did throughout her life. More than anything, she treasured time spent with her family. Her beloved husband and children will forever cherish their final moments with Debbie, as she passed away with them by her side.

Debbie was preceded in death by her parents, Melvin J. and Constance A. Newland; and her sister, Donna Fay Newland.

She is survived by her loving husband of 43 years, Jesse J. Perdue Jr.; daughter, Holly Gifford (Joseph); son, Jesse J. Perdue IIII (Angie); two grandchildren, Robbie Gifford and Morgan Gifford; four sisters, Connie Stewart, Alice King (Gaynor), Charlotte Newland, and Joyce Hanvey; sister-in-law, Gail Von Mosch (Carl); brother-in-law, Earl Perdue (Tammy); and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

A funeral service was held on Saturday, Nov. 2, 11:30 a.m. at Vincent Funeral Home, 9923 Pocahontas Trail, Providence Forge, VA 23140, with burial following in Washington Memorial Park. The family received friends from 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1, at the funeral home.
