AMES, DEBORAH

On April 5, 2022, Deborah (Debbie) English Ames went peacefully home to her Lord. Debbie was filled with grace, loved God, had a servant’s heart, and giving spirit. She firmly believed and knew she would be united with her loved ones again.

Debbie was the youngest daughter of Dick and Mary Jane (Lowery) English of Westfield, PA.

Those left to cherish and honor Deb‘s memories are siblings Diane Verbjar, Sue and Pat McAlinn, Mark and Terry English, nieces, nephews, other family members, and daughters of Jock Litras, her dear loving partner and best friend. Debbie has many friends who will miss her dearly as well.

After high school and earning a Nursing degree, Debbie continued her education and became a nursing home administrator. She was skilled in handling all aspects of her responsibilities, and even prayed with her patients and provided comfort to them and their families in their time of need.

Debbie’s closest friends and family remember her as their great encourager. She left her mark on so many hearts and was always helping; she listened, researched, gardened, painted, decorated, and beautified their world.

She held fast to the lost art of letter writing, and sent many sweet, encouraging, and humorous cards which included her sage words. She loved sending inspirational magnets too! Everywhere she worked and went, she even left encouraging words on note cards.

Debbie and Jock were passionate about visiting Art Galleries and art shows; they traveled to Key West, Sarasota Florida, up and down the East Coast, the New York Finger Lakes, and numerous cities and places in between. They loved going to her brother Mark’s art shows and she always shared pictures of his metal artwork with everyone.

For a number of years, she was her friends ‘travel agent’ arranging group trips and fantastic itinerary!

Debbie enjoyed music and dancing! She loved being near the water and spent as much time as she could by lakes and oceans. Her favorite movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” of course!!

Beautiful plants always graced her home and in recent years fuchsias profusely bloomed on her patio. She and Jock always put-up feeders for her beloved hummingbird ‘Mollie’ and feathered friends.

Everyone who met Debbie was blessed to know her and will dearly miss her sweet sense of humor and her generous spirit!

KENT, DEAN

Dean Charles Kent, 69, of Middleburg Heights, was called home to be with his Lord and Savior,
Jesus Christ, on March 25, 2022. Born in Cleveland, Ohio on February 5, 1953. Beloved husband
of Phyllis, loving father of Kristal, Adam (deceased), Julie, Jennifer Olson (Alan), Michael (Layla).
Beloved Papa of Brooke, Nathan, Kelly, Brendan, Lyla, Ryan, Colleen, Kevin, Scarlett, Rosalie.
Another grandson, Levi Michael, will be arriving in late June. Dearest son of Jean Kent (nee
Lamparyk) and the late Eugene Kent and son-in-law of Cora DeCapite (Bosl, nee Sample) and the late
Andrew DeCapite. Dear Brother of Timothy, Sandra Furber O'Malley (deceased), Susan (Phil) Urban,
Barbara Gawloski (Raymond - deceased), Terri (Brian) Cleary. Brother-in-law of Andrea (Lyle) Hill,
Nancy (Tony) Rylow, William (Judy) Bosl, Gregory Bosl, Rick Bosl, Rebecca Bosl. Dear Nephew,
Uncle, Cousin and Friend to many.

Dean was a man who loved God. He was a good man, but he wasn't perfect. He would say, "I'm a sinner
like all the rest of us; the only perfect one died on the cross". He was absolutely right. Dean's greatest
desire was for all of his family and friends to have a relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,
so that he would one day see each loved one again.

Dean and his wife, Phyllis, were soulmates, lovers and best friends. They were blessed to have a
special love that often only comes once in a lifetime and flourishes. They were inseparable. Being
self-employed, they spent many hours together and did it well. Dean successfully ran his own carpet
and furniture cleaning franchise, Duraclean Kent's Craftsmen, Inc. for nearly 40 years.

Dean loved spending time with family & friends. He enjoyed gardening (flower & vegetable) and music
of all kinds (he had a wonderful voice). His love of Christmas and collecting antique ornaments grew
into a successful ebay business that he shared with his wife. The Christmas trees he decorated were
stunning and he collected many Nativity sets. He loved Christmas, but never forgot the real reason
we celebrate Christmas......the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
He was an avid football fan of the Browns & Ohio State. Dean was outgoing and took every opportunity
to share his Christian faith with strangers or someone he just met. His sense of humor and laughter
were infectious and will be dearly missed by all who knew him. "Our loss is great, God is greater".

Dean was diagnosed with 4th Stage Lung Cancer that had spread to the brain in October, 2021.
He had a couple of radiation treatments and 2 chemo treatments that proved ineffective. He was
active until the last 2 weeks, when he began to tire easily.. God answered his prayer to go quickly
and peacefully. He only spent a day and a half away from home at the hospice facility.


There will be a Memorial / Celebration of Life Service on Saturday, April 23, 2022 at 11:00 am at
Park Hts. Baptist Church, 16189 Sheldon Rd., Middleburg Hts., OH 44130. The service will be
followed by a luncheon for the family. Dean's favorite color was purple. Please join us in wearing
purple in his honor.

For those unable to attend, the Service will be streamed live. Go to the church website:
