Barbara Debolt


Surrounded by her loving family, Barbara Jean (Grounds) Debolt age 80, of Marion, Ohio was granted her heavenly wings on December 20, 2018 at the Walnut Crossing assisted living facility in Marysville, Ohio. Barbara was born on June 7, 1938, in Marion, Ohio, the daughter of the late James and Louise (Spidel) Grounds. Barbara was swept off her feet by a handsome young man with blond hair and beautiful blue eyes, Ronald Arliss Debolt. They were married on July 10, 1954 in Liberty, Indiana. Ron and Barb shared 53 wonderful years of marriage together and lovingly raised three children; Rodney A. (Maria) Debolt, Pamela S. (Phillip) Pierron and Patricia A. (Charles) Ropke.  In addition to her three children, Barbara leaves behind eight grandchildren; Ronald, Daisy, Ryan, Jarlin, Rodney Debolt Jr. Stephanie Lupica, and Joshua and Bradley Ropke. Eleven grandchildren; Steven, Kathy, Austin and Lily Debolt. Noah Debolt, Kaitlin and Megan Bouie, Tyler, Jacob, Dylan and Alec Ropke. Brother Malcom Grounds and sister Mary Martin as well as numerous nieces and nephews.  Barbara was preceded in death by her twin sons Richard and Ronald, husband Ronald Debolt, grandson Brian A. Debolt, brothers James Jr. and Dwight Grounds and sisters Ann Ferriman and Jesse Bowen. Barbara worked for and retired from Kable Fulfillment Corporation.  However, her family was always her priority.  She would love to visit her family in California and she was very proud of all of her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. We would like to extend a special heartfelt thank you to the Capital City Hospice nurses and aides for all of the loving care they gave their mother and the support we received from them during this difficult time.  The staff at Walnut Crossing also proved to be an invaluable resource. Graveside services in Barbara’s memory will be observed at later date by her loving family. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the American Liver and American Diabetes Associations.
