Obituary: Deborah (Sheehan) Rams

Deborah (Sheehan) Rams, passed away on Oct. 28, 2019, in Meeker, Colorado. Debbie was a loving mother, teacher and a beautiful friend to so many.

She was born on Oct. 15, 1963, in Oak Park, Illinois, and achieved many accomplishments in her life. Debbie attended Rocky Mountain High School—1982, received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Colorado State University-1987, and a Masters of Special Education from UCCS-2009. She loved and was loved deeply by her two daughters Courtney and Caitlin Rams. Debbie worked as an elementary art and special education teacher. She had a big heart, enjoyed working with kids and helping those around her in need.
Debbie loved the simple things in life: the beautiful mountains, a meaningful country song, making homemade pizza with her daughters and sharing a laugh for the day with friends. A loving sister to Marcus Sheehan, Dan Sheehan and Michelle Been, and a beloved daughter of Marlene and Timothy Sheehan. Debbie was truly an angel. Her faith in God was bigger than this world could hold. Her belief in the power of guardian angels will have her overlooking all the lives she touched as an angel herself. May the love given to her by her daughters spread to the moon and back forever and always.
