Obituary – Deborah Myatt




Deborah Ann Myatt, 65, of Bowling Green, Kentucky, an angel that left our world to go home on Tuesday, July 31, 2018.

She was the daughter of William Randall Hart of Elizabethtown, KY and the late Edith Louise Herman Hart. Deborah was born on March 9, 1953 in Ft. Knox, KY. Deborah Ann Myatt was a beloved Christian woman, she was as pure as what we consider from the Bible a "saint". Deborah was known for her love of Jesus Christ and her love for her family. She dedicated her life to serving others selflessly. She left an image for all who met her of her beautiful smiling eyes that had a twinkle to them that was almost surreal.

She was known as MiMi to most, as one of her favorite things in life was to cherish, love, and support her 3 grandchildren from basketball games, soccer games to recitals. Basketball is definitely the soul of the Myatts. Deborah proudly watched and attended almost every game of her oldest grandson Hunter. She enjoyed watching her son Jason compete at the highest levels of competition, her family has attained 10 world and world grand championship titles. Deborah was an avid horse breeder and owner and member of the TWHBEA, a breeder of many quality horses and a huge supporter of her son and grandchildren at the shows.

The sweet beautiful, and gracious side of Deborah will be passed along generations to her daughter Jennifer and down to both her granddaughters Jenna and Makena. Through sickness and in health for 46 years Deborah and Jerry were together, influencing all that knew them with their love to each other. The bond is second to none. Reading the Bible before they would start each amazing day together was just one example of the faith and commitment she had to our Lord. Deborah was a member of Bethany Baptist Church.

She is survived by her husband of 46 years, Jerry Myatt, daughter Jennifer Raymer, son in law Chad Raymer, son Jason Myatt, daughter in law Hannah Myatt, grandson Hunter Raymer, granddaughters Jenna Raymer and Make na Myatt all of Bowling Green, KY, sister Susan Hart Thomas of Elizabethtown, KY and brothers David Hart and Randy Hart of Elizabethtown, KY. Funeral service is 1:00 PM Friday, August 3, 2018 at J.C. Kirby & Son Lovers Lane Chapel with burial to follow in Bethany Baptist Church Cemetery. Visitation at the funeral home begins tonight; (Thursday) from 4:00 - 8:00 PM and Friday from 11:00 - 1:00 PM. at the funeral home. Arrangements have been entrusted to J.C. Kirby & Son Lovers Lane Chapel. Deborah was the epitome of the loving woman of Christ so cherished in the Bible. Her beautiful blue eyes and sparkling smile that could light up a room will be missed by all who knew her. Matthew 25:21 - "His Lord said unto him, "Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your Lord."
