Mrs. Boyken, age 56, of Meridian, passed away Thursday, January 11, 2018 peacefully after a hard fought battle with cancer.
Debby was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana. She graduated from Heritage Christian High School. Her dream of becoming a flight attendant was achieved. Debby flew for Midway Airlines and US Airways Express. In May of 2000 she received her dream job flying for NetJets Aviation. This allowed her to see the world and provide world class service.
