Debra Mihm, 60, formerly of Buhl, MN, passed away suddenly January 1, 2017, at her home in Santa Paula, CA, after battling several health issues. She was born December 29, 1956, in Rochester, MN, to Robert and Phyllis Mihm.
Debra was employed by Velocity Truck Center of Ventura County, CA, and enjoyed her job very much. She was an inspiration to many for her ability to unconditionally love so many people of various walks of life. Debbie had the ability to shrug off any setback life had to offer and kept smiling, no matter what the circumstance. A true lover of her little dachshunds, Annie and Stinkerbella and her recently passed Rhodi and “Stretch Limo”. She had an unsurpassed love for her niece, Pamela (Mihm) Ellis; Pamela’s children, Porter and Madison; and their little Yorkie, Mocha Bean, who are now the adopted owners of her beloved fur-babies. Deb was truly one of the kindest souls a person could meet. She will be missed greatly.
Debra is survived by her sister, Patty Marks (Ed Heikkila) of Buhl; brother, Jeff (Carla) Mihm of South St. Paul; sister-in-law, Dawnette Mihm of Dark Lake; step-brother and step-sister, Joe Gravich and Melody (Gravich) Staffaroni; many nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews, cousins and numerous friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Robert (Phyllis Kinsman, Gravich) Mihm; brothers, Phillip and Daniel Mihm; sister, Jane Mihm; and niece, Ashley Mihm.
We are specifically grateful to her California friends Rob and Margaret Frost and her bff Linda Frank.
