Deborah Ann Lizana, 58 of Waveland, passed away November 1, 2020 at St. Joseph Hospice in Gulfport. Deborah was born January 15, 1962 in the old Hancock General Hospital, the second of five children to Earl Louis Lizana, Jr. and Agnes Juliette Nelson. She grew up a country girl on a small family farm in Kiln, with an assortment of animals that included goats, cows, hogs, chickens and more. Deborah also loved country music, especially from the late 70s and 80s. She graduated a member of the Hancock North Central High School Class of 1980, making her home in Picayune. Deborah started her family and raised her kids there until moving to Waveland in 1990. She worked for the schools for many years as a substitute teacher and thoroughly loved it. In her spare time, Deborah loved to fish. If the fish weren't biting that day, you could usually find her shooting pool and enjoying a glass of sweet tea with her friends at her favorite hangout, the Knock Knock. She is remembered as an amazing, determined mother that supported and worked hard to help her children every step in life. Though she could be a tad stubborn at times, Deborah was a loving, giving woman, described as "a ray of sunshine on the cloudiest days" by those who knew her best. She will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by all who knew and loved her. She was preceded by her parents, Earl L. Lizana, Jr. and Agnes J. Nelson. Left to cherish her memories are: her son, Johnathon Perry of Waveland and daughter Kasondra Perry (Keith Smith) of Lakewood, WA, with her step-daughter, Shauna (Daniel) Chauvin of Bay St. Louis; her sisters, Tammy (Michael) Steno and Donnell Landtroop, both of Bay St. Louis, Stephanie Sigur of Pearlington and Patricia Palmer of Waveland, and her brother Kevin Lizana, also of Bay St. Louis. Deborah leaves a legacy of twelve grandchildren, four great-grands, with numerous extended family and friends. Her final wishes were to be cremated, which her family is honoring. A memorial service has been set for Sunday afternoon, Nov. 8th from 12:00 until 5:00 PM at the pavillion, located at the end of Washington Street in Bay St. Louis. All who knew and loved Deborah are encouraged to attend. Trinity Funeral Services is honored to serve the Lizana family in their time of need, asking everyone to keep them in your thoughts and prayer during this difficult time.
