Deborah Dickens "Debbie" Berger

December 7, 1957 - July 5, 2018

Deborah (Debbie) Dickens Berger passed away peacefully on July 5th, 2018, at the Elizabeth House after her long battle with cancer.

She is survived by her two sons, Jared Berger and wife Rebecca, and Nolan Berger and wife Ashton; grandchildren, Hadlynn and Hudson Berger; brother, Greg Dickens and wife Traci; sister Gayle McCrary and husband Robert; and a multitude of nieces, nephews, aunts, and uncles. She was preceded in death by her father, Rev. Charles Dickens and her mother, Judith Dickens.

Debbie was born December 7, 1957 in Lexington, NC and moved to Hendersonville with her family in 1973. She was a graduate of East Henderson High School in 1976 and Isothermal Community College in 1978. Debbie was the Vice President Trust Officer of First Citizens Bank. She was a devoted worker who truly cared about each and every one of her customers. Debbie was an active member at Living Water Church and volunteer at the Hendersonville Rescue Mission. She made it a point to always give back to her church and community. However her number one priority in life was always her family.

In addition, Debbie was always willing to provide a sympathetic ear and a shoulder to cry on to anyone in need. Even in the midst of her treatment, she put the needs of others above her own. She maintained a selfless demeanor all her life, even after her diagnosis. She was much loved by her family and community and will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.

In the end, she found comfort in her faith and knew without a doubt that all was well with her soul.
A celebration of Debbie’s life will be held 3:00 pm Sunday, July 15, 2018 at Living Water Baptist Church. Rev. Tony Birkhead will officiate. The family will receive guests from 1:30 to 2:30 pm at the church prior to the service. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to the Hendersonville Rescue Mission, P.O.
