Debeney Ceryse Kreiling (LaLa) born February 3, 1989, in Houston, TX, was torn from our lives on April 11, 2011.

Spending most of her life in Independence, Missouri, she and her mother ministered to children and adults serving the Lord at Hilcrest Ministries. Debeney was mutli-lingual at seventeen and a missionary to Mexico. She had such great compassion for third world countries and people of all cultures. As we all suffer such great loss, perhaps, Emanuel, her baby boy will the most, as he will never really know the softness of her heart or those beautiful eyes full of love.

Debeney is survived by her mother, Tisha Menzies; son, Emanuel Kreiling; brother, Michael Mitchell; sisters, Sharon Tran, Crystal Rodriguez; grandparents, Bob and Charlene Menzies.  She was also an aunt to 11 nephews and nieces.

A gathering will be held on Saturday, April 30, 2011, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.  A service will follow at 1 p.m. at D.W. Newcomer’s on Noland Road.
