Life Legacy

Debra Ann Palacios 39, a resident of Silver City, NM entered eternal rest on Saturday, October 3, 2009 in the comfort of her residence. She was born April 20, 1970 in Silver City to Luis E. Palacios and Natalia (Jaramillo) Palacios. She was co-owner of the family owned El Paisano Restaurant. She loved catering and serving customers and friends. She was a huge fan of the Raider nation. She also was a proud sponsor and supporter of the Grant County Toy Run. Debra was well known as a local bartender; known all around Silver City. She loved being around family, friends and children. She enjoyed camping and being in the outdoors. In her youth, she was a huge fan of music, ranging from your heavy metal to your soft music. No matter the song she was always in tune. From the memories of Oz Fest to early MC Hammer she could always vibe, groove and head bang. In her greatest moments she was a very inspirational person and touched the hearts of many. Even in sickness and health, she was a shoulder to lean on, someone to confide in with the understanding to never point a finger; but understand with compassion and always, always put a smile on your face. To never forget you will always live in your family’s hearts until the end of time. So always remember as along as we live we’ll never forget Deb.
