Debby Theresa (Crowder) Lovsey, 66, of Wilsonville, Ill., passed away Thursday, May 26, 2022, at Memorial Hospital in Springfield, Ill. Born May 15, 1956, in St. Louis County, Missouri, she was a daughter of the late Charles and Ada (Zumwalt) Crowder.
She was a mother of three: Jennifer (husband Ronald) Barber, Robert (wife Michelle) Lovsey Jr., and Brandace (partner Paul) Cloud. She was a fiercely proud grandmother of nine: Dustin Barber, Logan Leitschuh, Keegan Barber, Victorya (Tory) Barber, Missy Hormann, Angel Hormann, Robert Hormann, Brendan Lovsey, and Asa Cloud. She was a sister to four: Sharon (late husband Dennis - current partner Thomas Schorn), Melody (husband Steve) Briggs and Penny (late partner Ronald Woosley) Pulley; two brothers, Charles "Chuck" Crowder, Jr., and Donald "Duck" (wife Paula) Crowder. She was an aunt to many nieces and nephews and a fast friend to anyone she met.
Debby was a math wiz who found her calling graduating with her bachelor’s in accounting from Sangamon College. However, this accomplishment was preceded by her desire to stay home with her kiddos until they were all in school. After her graduation, she was ready to strike out! It didn’t take long for Debby to become her own boss, successfully owning her own branch of H&R Block in Carlinville through retirement. She always had a steady, loyal crew including Mary, Linda, and Dave. However, every season she would generously hire anyone that needed work. She rarely charged family and friends for her accounting services because she loved being able to help people.
Debby was a social butterfly who loved the movies and dinner out on the town with friends, old and new. She loved traveling. From cruises to road trips, she thoroughly enjoyed exploring the world with the people she loved. She also enjoyed shopping with friends. She was incredibly generous. If she had something you needed, she’d happily hand it over. Debby will be deeply missed by her family and friends. We hope that she has found the peace she so desperately sought when she was on this earth.
A visitation will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday, June 17, 2022, at Williamson Funeral Home in Staunton. Memorials are suggested to Catty Shack in Hamel, Ill.
