On August 21, 2012 in Grants Pass, Ore., Debra Lynn (Milts) Boehm passed away just as the sun was rising. She was the joyful, feisty, loving, and beautiful daughter of Robert Milts and Jaymie (Milts) Baty. Debbie was born April 10, 1956. When her father remarried she became the stepdaughter to Donna Milts and the stepsister to Paul Everett and Eric Everett of Medford, Ore. These young boys were overjoyed to have sisters at last. The blending of these families and the love we all shared led to wonderful times and celebrations.

Deb was the wife of Daryl Boehm, the mother of Meghan Boehm-Hart (Brian) and Dustin Boehm, and the loving grandmother of Rylan Hart. During the last months of her life, this little child was who Deb longed to see and hold. Rylan gave her grandmother much comfort and peace. Together they were a joy to behold. Others left to cherish her memory are her father and stepmother, Robert and Donna Milts; her sister, Kathy Jo Milts Mengershausen (Robert); her aunt, Sandy Fillman; her uncles, Michael Milts, Robert Osburn, and William Osburn and their families, plus a multitude of friends.

Preceding her in death were her loving mother, Jaymie Baty, and her brother Robert (Bobby) Milts.

There will be a gathering of family and friends on Sunday, August 26, 2012, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at the Grants Pass Golf Club where Debbie spent many funfilled days.

Contributions in lieu of flowers may be sent to: Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation, P.O. Box 204, Northwood, N.J., 07648.
