Debbie Cleveland

Debbie and her husband, Ron, are long time members of FBC Lake Jo! Together they are the church custodians. Although that sounds like they are simply responsible for cleaning, they too go above and beyond to make sure our church looks its best. Both Ron & Deb can be found on site much after everyone has left trying their best to clean, tidy, and prepare for the next service, meeting or event. Feel free to encourage them by telling them how great our facilities look! 

Member since 1990. 

It is a tremendous loss for our church and Debbie's family.  Debbie went home to be with the Lord, June 10, 2021.  She served our church not only by her job as custodian, but as a Sunday school teacher for our children, a VBS worker, and wherever there was a need.  We all love and miss her!  We will see her again!!
