Debora Lyn Benton (Lott), 63, passed away in her home on May 19th, 2020 in Springdale, Arkansas. She was born September 11th, 1956 in Springdale, Arkansas to John and Ethel Lott. Debbie was preceded in death by her mother, Ethel Lott, father, John Lott and brother, Joe Dean Strope.

Debbie made her life-long home in Springdale, Arkansas graduating from Springdale Senior High School in 1974. She briefly attended the University of Arkansas before joining the workforce at Easco Handtools. During her long tenure with Easco, Debbie gave birth to her only child, Jacqueline (Jackie) Benton. Shortly after, she transitioned to Victor Manufacturing and then onto JB Hunt in 1996. Debbie continued to work for JB Hunt for nearly 24 years.

She was a hard working, fiercely loving and brutally honest person, and most everyone loved her for it. Debbie always tried to brighten the day of everyone around with her charm, wit and sarcasm.

Debbie is survived by her daughter Jackie Benton-Myers (Matthew) and step-grandson Zachary.

The family has chosen to honor her request that no services be held.

Such a fun lady to work with. She could always make you laugh and feel good. Yes she was a spit fire, but you always knew where you stood with her. No holding back, that what I loved about her. She knew how to take care of business the right way and the 1st time. She will be missed by many, but she is now in a better place without pain, R.I.P. Joyce Russell

Jackie --I am so sorry for your loss you are in my prayers.
We worked together for for 24 years. Debbie was tough as nails with a heart of gold. Her laugh was so contagious
and we had some really good times at JBH Corp.

Debbie was a very special lady. She was a wonderful, loving and caring Mom to my precious granddaughter, Jackie. She had a good sense of humor and we would laugh a lot. When we visited, she was always happy to see me and she was very generous with me. I loved her and I will miss her. My heart is with Jackie as she will miss her Mom so much. I know Debbie is with the Lord now.

Wow, she had such a big personality that I for one will miss. I worked with her from day one of starting at JB Hunt, and found I wanted to grow up and be just like her. Wee were collectors back then and she had she could collect anything!! RIP, my friend.

Debbie and I spoke a number of times on the phone, and I was lucky enough to see her twice at family functions. She was funny sincere down to earth. I felt she was the type of person you could talk to and really be heard. I will always be grateful that Debbie gave Bonnie and I one of our greatest joys, Jackie UJ
