Mrs. Deborah Kay Blackard Chase, 72, of Fayetteville, passed away on Monday, June 10, 2019.

Deborah was preceded in death by her husband, Brian Chase; her parents Stella and Thomas Blackard; and her cousin, Subdeacon Claude Franklin Sr. 

She is survived by her daughter, Robin Dalton Talley and husband, William of Fayetteville; three grandchildren, Erica Gilbert, Heather Gilbert, and Shannon Alleman and husband, Adam; five cousins, Ingrid Franklin, Father Claude Franklin Jr, Michelle Franklin, Christian Gray, and Allison Averitt, and her beloved dogs, Buddy and Neko. 

A doting and loving mother, grandmother, and friend, Deborah enjoyed spending time with her family, moments full of laughter and spoiling her beloved pets. She had been a resident of Fayetteville since 1986. She worked for the FTCC Continuing Education Department as Secretary for Emergency Services before retiring. Deborah loved life from discovering new restaurants to the simple pleasure of watching a hummingbird or feeding the squirrels in the Boston Commons, but most of all she cherished her family and their many vacations to the mountains and the beaches. Deborah will be dearly missed by her family and friends and loved infinity infinities.
