Debbie Lee Day

February 16, 1960 — January 16, 2024

Donna Lee Day, known to all of us as Debbie, passed away peacefully on January 16, 2024, in Kaysville, Utah after a short and courageous battle with Pancreatic Cancer. Born on February 16, 1960, in San Antonio, Texas, she was the beloved daughter of Dolores May Morgan (Montgomery). Debbie shared her life with her devoted husband, Zane M Day, and together they created a home filled with love and cherished memories.


Throughout her life, Debbie journeyed through various states, including Texas, Wyoming, California, Arizona, and Utah, leaving a lasting impact on the communities she called home.


Professionally, Debbie worked in different capacities, contributing her skills to Smiths in the Bakery and Deli Departments, Meyer & Frank, and Macy's in the Jewelry Department as well as a Sales Representative for Papa John's Produce.


Debbie's passions were diverse and reflected her vibrant spirit. She found joy in decorating, cooking, collecting kitchen gadgets, hosting gatherings, basking in the Arizona sun, traveling with Zane, camping with her family, and enjoying shopping and dinners with her girls. Above all, she cherished her roles as a wife, mom, and grandma, holding her family at the center of her universe.


Debbie is survived by her loving husband, Zane Day, of Kaysville, Utah, and her children: Kyle Day (Jill) of Kaysville, Utah, Brandon Vavricka of Peoria, Arizona, Amanda Pitkin (Stacy) of Phoenix, Arizona, Vanessa Paulino (Frank) of Peoria, Arizona, Brittney Austin (Brady) of Roy, Utah, Shawnda Cheneler of Springfield, Missouri, Brock Day (Amber) of Kaysville, Utah, Airyn Kussee (Kole) of Syracuse, Utah, and Alyx Jensen (Brian) of Kaysville, UT. She leaves behind 30 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. She is also survived by her siblings: Loeni Wilson, Michael Smith (Mary), David Morgan, and Sandy Corley (James). 


Debbie was preceded in death by her mom Dolores May Morgan, her daughter Misti Daun Pitkin, her grandson Bryce Pitkin, and siblings Dottie Hord and Lynn Smith.


The family extends their gratitude to Nurse Erin and Dr. Arango at Ogden Regional Oncology, as well as the nurses at CNS especially Danita, for their compassionate care during Debbie's final months and weeks.

There will be no public services held at this time.


In memory of Debbie, a small private family gathering will be held to honor and remember her wonderful life. The family kindly requests privacy during this sensitive time. Funeral services will take place at Lindquist Mortuary in Kaysville, followed by a burial service at Kaysville Cemetery. Your thoughts and support during this period are deeply appreciated.
