Deborah Jean Pepp

Deborah Jean Pepp, at 62, passed away peacefully on 03/01/2024 in the hospital with family at  her side after a long and courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.  

Deborah was a remarkable woman who lived an eventful life. Born on September 1, 1961, to  Bradford and Margaret Brooks, she grew up in Livonia, MI. Deborah married Frank Pepp on  June 30, 1995, in Livonia, MI, where they shared many happy years. 

Deborah was a proud Livonia, MI, resident for 57 years and graduated from Bentley High School  in 1979. She worked as a bookkeeper for most of her career, spending the last 12 years at  Weinstein Jewelers in Novi, MI. Her passion for her work and dedication to her clients were  unparalleled. 

Deborah was an exceptional athlete and excelled in softball. She enjoyed coaching,  participating in, and watching multiple sports. Her love for sports was evident in her time on  the field and how she inspired others to do their best.  

Deborah’s family was her pride and joy. She treasured her time with her grandkids, her family,  and her cousins growing up at Camp Dearborn during the summer.  

She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend who touched the lives of many.  Deborah was preceded in death by her father, Bradford Brooks, and brother, Rick.  

She is survived by her beloved husband, Frank; her mother, Margaret Brooks; her older brother,  Brad; her younger sister, Sandy; and her three children, Jessica (son-in-law Alex), Brianna Frank  IV. In addition, she is survived by her grandkids, Wyatt, Lorelai, and Cody, along with many  nieces, nephews, and cousins.


Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

    Ah, Deb, you left too soon but I know you put up a good fight.
    Man, we had some great times in high school. I have many fond memories of the fun you, Kelly, Debi, and I had (and the occasional trouble we got into). You were always up for a mischievous time!

    My sincerest condolences to your family.

    Rest easy, old friend.
