Debbra Barefoot

Debbra Barefoot, 69, passed away April 19, 2024,  in the comfort of her home. She was born April 21, 1954, in Hart, to Axel and Leota Johnson, the youngest of four children. Debbra’s life was marked by love, family, and a steadfast dedication to her roles as a mother, wife, and professional.

Debbra embraced motherhood, welcoming her first son, Timothy, in 1970. After graduating from Hart High School in 1972, she married Michael Kaat in 1973, and together they welcomed their second son, Benjamin, in 1974, and daughter, Heidi, in 1977.

In 1984, Debbra embarked on a new chapter, marrying her second husband, Bernie Lensky, and relocating to 48th Avenue, where they opened their business Little Woods Morgans. They owned and sold Morgans for several years. However, after Bernie’s passing in 1995, it was in 1996 that she found true love with William Barefoot, and they cherished 26 amazing years of watching grandchildren and great-grandchildren grow.

Throughout her life, Debbra pursued various careers, but she found particular pride and fulfillment in her work as a truck driver and as a corrections officer at the sheriff’s office. Her dedication and commitment left an indelible mark on all who knew her.

Debbra will be remembered for her kindness, strength, and unwavering love for her family. She leaves behind cherished memories and a legacy of love that will continue to inspire those who knew her. Debbra was a wonderful mother, and as her grandbabies knew her, tough-Nana.

Debbra is survived by: her children, Heidi (Michael) Moul, Benjamin (Jamie) Kaat, and Joseph (Nancy) Barefoot; grandchildren, Meika (Brandon), Katlyn, Elizabeth (James), McKenna, Blake (Daniel), Megan (Jesse), Jordan, Brandon, and Marissa; 16 great-grandchildren; beloved dogs, Topper and Maggie; and her cat, Mittens.
