Deborah Jean Coon Augustine

April 27, 1954 — July 4, 2023

Deborah Jean Coon Augustine was sent to Heaven on July 4th, 2023, at 12:45 AM in the presence of her loved ones. She was born on April 27th, 1954, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Deborah was affectionately known by her grandchildren as “Grandma Reb.” For part of her life, she was known for her real estate prowess. She also enjoyed time with her grandchildren and children. She was a University of Utah graduate who enjoyed watching Utah football and basketball games with her family. Further, she found immense joy in watching her family’s sporting events. She loved her husband, Dean, and loved the Lord. To her final breath, she praised the Lord through song and the lifting of her hands. She was a devout prayer warrior who unashamedly had the deepest desire for all to find the most meaningful relationship known to humankind: a relationship with Jesus Christ of the Bible. Unapologetic about her attempts to help others find Christ, she would frequently pass out tracts as well as say a prayer of salvation leading to a relationship with Jesus Christ with anyone who was willing.
Grandma Reb is survived by her loving husband, Dean; her children, Melonie, Jonathan, Matthew, Joshua, and Jordan; her twelve grandchildren: Paishence, Mariahna, Sophia, Esther, Ezekiel, Anneke, Cody, Olivia, Lillian, Jeremiah, Rayna, and Jaycie; and numerous others who came to know her as a motherly figure. If there was a chance to worship, see her children, or see her grandchildren, Grandma Reb wanted to be there.
She is preceded in death by her father, LaMar Coon; her mother, Shirley Coon; and her sister, Patricia Coon.
