Debra L. (Schiesser) Moser, 69, of Allen, KS, passed away September 24, 2021, at St. Luke’s Hospice House. She was born in rural Agnes City, KS, on July 14, 1952, to Donald and Dorothy Reaka Schiesser.
Debra married Gene Moser in 1969 and graduated from Northern Heights High School in 1970. She worked at West-America Securities until the company ceased operations. In 1977, she became a bus driver for USD 251. For 40 years, she enjoyed being a school bus driver but more significantly loved the kids, where she was a second mother to many. Every Halloween, she would often make over 100 of the best donuts to give to all the trick-or-treaters (and their parents).
Throughout her life, Debra enjoyed playing and coaching girls’ softball with her sister, Kathy. She loved spending time with family, collecting antiques, caring for the many dachshunds she had over the years, watching her grandkids’ events and taking them to catch their first fish. She was dedicated to service and community. A member of the American Legion Auxiliary, a Sunday school teacher, city of Allen councilmember and the cemetery sexton.
She was most proud of her two children and four grandchildren. Debra is survived by her son Mark Moser (wife Diane) of Valley Center, Kansas; daughter Laurie Dunn (husband Richard) of Weston, Missouri. Grandchildren include Todd Moser, Calista and Adalynn Dunn and a bonus grandson, Carter Dunn. She is also survived by her parents Donald and Dorothy Schiesser; sister Kathy Jackson (husband Larry); brother Jeff Schiesser (wife Dana); and nieces and nephews.

Always a fun and funny classmate. Someone to laugh with and know she said and meant what she said.
My heart goes out to those who were closest to her.
Debbie fought so hard to stay with you all and was so proud of you all.
She traveled to Salina to spend the day with me a few years ago. Seemed time just stood still and we picked up with our friend ship.
Rest well and enjoy time with those gone ahead of you, girl.

Sympathy and prayers headed your way. I was one of the fortunate friends of Debbie and Gene back in the 70’s while they were building their family. Debbie worked at Westamerica Securities, right beside me. She was a wonderful coworker and even better “work sister”. Hugs to all who love her 💕
The last time I saw her she took me and my daughter out to my grandparents farm I lived there for a few years when i was 6 to maybe 10 Aunt Dorthy would know she showed us her horse she very proud of that horse
