Deborah Ann "Debbie" Byrne

July 3, 1950 — September 7, 2022

Heaven gained an angel in Deborah Ann Byrne September 7, 2022. A loving sister, wife, mother, and grandmother. Debbie was born and raised in Wathena, KS where she spent the summers of her youth doing chores on her grandparent’s farm and working at Uncle Fred’s Fruit Market. Her beauty earned her a Homecoming Queen crown her senior year of High School.
She started working at Southwestern Bell at age 19 as a switch board operator and worked her way up to Telecommunications Engineer who oversaw land lines in four states during her 31-year career. The example she set for her daughters as a professional woman juggling motherhood and a demanding career continues to be an inspiration to her children.
Debbie took pride in having a clean home that was elegantly decorated with her dazzling taste. Her outfit, hair, and nails were always on-point. Debbie will be terribly missed by all who loved her.
Welcoming her to paradise and preceding her in death are her parents Esther and John Shuster and her brother Darwin Shuster of Wathena, KS. Surviving her are daughters Bridget Morrison, Shannon Harris, and Rory Forck; her cherished grandbabies Kaelin, Charlee, Vincent, Waylon, and Korbin; brothers Mike Shuster, John Shuster Jr., sister, Shelly Vertin; and her husband James Byrne.
A memorial visitation will be held on Wednesday, September 14th from 9-10am with a service following at 10am, both at Speaks Suburban Chapel, 18020 E 39th St.; Independence, MO 64055. Guests are invited to honor and celebrate Debbie by wearing the color green, her favorite.
