Reynolds, Debbie

In late December, we said good night to the one who once sang to us “Good mornin’, good mornin’, to you.”

Born in 1932, Debbie Reynolds grew up in El Paso, Texas before moving with her family 7 years later to Burbank California, where she would go on to win beauty contests and get a contract with Warner Brothers.

She would have have small parts in musicals throughout the 50s, including her breakout leading role as Kathy Seldon in “Singing’ in the Rain.” She would have many other high profile roles including Charlotte in the Hanna Barbara animated production of “Charlotte’s Web”, and the mother Bobbi Adler in “Will & Grace.”
Mother to actress Carrie Fisher and director Todd Fisher, Debbie Reynolds provided us with entertainment on stage, television, and film, and left behind a rich legacy of entertainment. She will be missed.

My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!
