Deborah “Debbie” Biggs Bennett, 73

Deborah “Debbie” Biggs Bennett, 73, passed away at home on
Saturday, February 10, 2024, with her family near.
A lifetime “Barbertonian”, Debbie was born on November 11,
1950. She was a proud Class of 1969 graduate of Barberton High
School. The family requested a special shout-out to the many
classmates with whom she shared friendships. Debbie lived life to
the fullest, always laughing with joy and gusto. To know her was
to love her.
Debbie and Othel Bennett married in 1976. She and “O,” as
she affectionately called him, raised daughter, Stacey and sons,
Cole and Nick on the eastside of Barberton. Her family was her
greatest treasure. She loved LARGE!
Debbie endured heartache after the loss of both sons, Cole and
Nick Bennett and husband, Othel. She also was preceded in death
by her father, Charles Biggs, mother Gertrude and beloved
stepfather, Paul Freeman.
Left behind to miss her greatly are her daughter, Stacey and
son-in-law, Jim Harshbarger; grandchildren, Dana (Travon)
Ambrose, Griffin (Alanna), Madi and Trevin Harshbarger,
Makayla Foster, Payton, Cole II, and Bella Bennett; five great
grandchildren, extended family, and many friends.
There will be no service.
Donations may be made in Debbie’s memory to the Barberton
Public Library or to the Alzheimer’s Association for Research.
