December 27, 1950 ~ May 15, 2021 (age 70)


Deborah Ann Tiffany

Debbie was born in Longmont, Colorado on Dec 27, 1950, to Gottlieb Heit and Helen (Frick) and was the eldest of 3 siblings.  Deb grew up in Ft. Lupton, graduating from Fort Lupton High School in 1968. She married the love of her life, Dean Tiffany, on Jan 20, 1973.

Debbie spent the majority of her life, 40 years, living in Brighton and working for Adams County as a Civil Court Clerk and then as the Adams County Jury Commissioner.   Debbie enjoyed antiquing with her cousin Cindy, and loved collecting vintage items and depression glass.  For a short time she had a small shop inside the Past and Present Antique Store in Brighton.  She also loved to cross stitch, crochet, and  tole- painting.   She also enjoyed spaghetti westerns, old movies, classic rock and going to restaurants in search of a good cocktail.  Every morning she enjoyed a good cup of Joe with her son, Jon.  Most of all she enjoyed cooking, trying new recipes, homemaking and taking care of her family including her Schnauzers whom she loved very much.  Holiday gatherings were always very special at her home.

Family was very important to Deb.  She took care of her sisters after their mother’s death in 1971.  She also took care of her Grandma Frick after a stroke and helped with her father during his health crisis.  She was very kind, loving and generous.  

Debbie is survived by her husband of 48 years, Dean Tiffany of Brighton; son, Jonathan Tiffany of Brighton; sister, Jacquelyn (Donald) Smith of Ft. Lupton; sister, Pamela (Cliff) Trostel of Longmont; sister-in-law, Melanie Tiffany (Mike Hollingworth) of Greeley; nieces, Jessica Trostel (Chris Wilson) of Denver, Niki (Ryen) Craig of Torrington Wyoming, Joy (Alfredo) Valdez of Gilcrest; and nephew, Travis (Jennifer) Deaton of Brighton.  She is preceded in death her parents.
