Obituary for Deborah Lynn Dykes

Deborah (Debbie) Dykes, nee Smith, of Independence, KY, passed away surrounded by loved ones at St. Elizabeth Hospice, Edgewood, on Saturday, February 17, 2018 at the age of 64. Beloved wife of Rob Dykes, of Independence, KY. Debbie retired from Bob Evans, Florence, in 2015 – she also worked many years for Frisch’s. She enjoyed gardening, fishing, bonfires, crafts and playing the slots! A kind and caring soul, whose selfless and unassuming ways paralleled her zest for life. She’ll be remembered for the joy and laughter she radiated everywhere she went. Perhaps most of all we’ll remember the way she lived, while dying. Debbie will be greatly missed. She is preceded in death by her father, Elmer Smith of Covington, KY. Debbie is survived by sons, Jason (Felisha) Houp and Jeremy Houp of Georgia. Her mother, Martha (Pressler) Smith, of Villa Hills, KY, Siblings; Ron (Ruth) Smith of Independence, KY, Carolyn (Smith) Bitter of Villa Hill, KY, Rob Smith of Florence, KY, Tim Smith of West Covington, KY, Kevin Smith of Union, KY, Tina (Smith) Panzeca of Union, KY, sister-in-law, Pam Dykes Blackburn (Bob), 5 grandchildren, several nieces and nephews, and “Willie” her beloved Shih Tzu. Visiation/Celebration of Life will be held on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at Stith Funeral Home, 7500 U.S. Highway 42, Florence, KY 41042, from 4:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. A Catholic Blessing will take place at 7:00 p.m. The family suggests that memorials take the form of donations to a charity of the donor’s choice.
