Debra Kay Poling

April 13, 1954 — January 22, 2022

Debra Kay (Evans) Poling went to be with her Lord and Savior on January 22, 2022, at her residence in Old Fields, WV with her family at her side. Born on April 13, 1954, she was the daughter of Agnes Elizabeth Hawse Evans and James Richard “Pud” Evans, as well as the little sister of Nancy Taylor and Kathy (Michael) Snyder. Debbie was married to the love of her life and high school sweetheart, Daniel Milford Poling, for 46 years and had two children, James Lindsey “JL” Poling of Old Fields, WV and Katie (Matt) See of Morgantown, WV. The joys of her life were her granddaughters, Miss Mollie Elizabeth and Emilie Edna (aka – “Emie the Elf”) See.

Debbie retired in October after a long career with the 22nd Judicial Court and Hardy County Probation offices. We thought she would be heading out to Morgantown to frequently knock on her son-in-law’s door, but it turns out the Lord had other plans, which we suspect may be that of the official Heavenly yard sale organizer and bake sale locator. She loved yard sales and clearance racks. And jewelry. She loved jewelry so much that there is a dedicated closet for her costume jewelry and other treasures.

She was an active member of the Moorefield Church of the Brethren, where she dedicated a lot of her time and a fraction of her endless energy to efforts, such as leading the children’s story, teaching Sunday school, helping with meals and serving on boards. Her church family was a tremendous source of support throughout her time of illness.

Debbie leaves behind countless friends and friends-like-family. She truly adored the people she worked with throughout her career, beginning with circuit court judges and attorneys and most recently, her Hardy County Probation Office family including her best buddies Pam and Rick.

Debbie left an impression on everyone she met. Everyone who ever met her has their favorite story about their time with Deb. She showed her love in many ways, one of which included showering those she loved with gifts and favorite food.

A Celebration of Deb's Life will be held from 2:00 PM until 4:00 PM, Saturday, June 4, 2022 at Brighton Park, 644 Fisher Road, Moorefield, WV. Attendees are encouraged to bring a lawn chair.

Memorials may be made in her memory to the Moorefield Church of the Brethren, 115 Clay Street, Moorefield, WV 26836.
