Local Business Showcase

Deborah Rose with Mary Kay
Deborah Rose began her Mary Kay business in May of 1991 and just celebrated her 29th Anniversary with the company. Deborah & her husband, Murray, moved to Wichita Falls in 1985 when Murray took a job as an electrical engineer at what was PPG Industries (now Vitro Architectural Glass). Before Mary Kay Deborah was a stay-at-home mom of 4 of their 5 children, a childbirth educator and a breastfeeding counselor. She joined Mary Kay to earn extra money, never imagining that it would become a full-time career. 
What Deborah loves most about Mary Kay is the flexibility to work her business around the needs of her family. She enjoys making women feel beautiful with her products and enriching women’s lives with her opportunity. 
Deborah has earned 15 Mary Kay career cars and is on-target to earn her 5th Pink Cadillac. She and her Unit are finishing their goal of the $400,000 Circle of Achievement by June 30th. 
“I highly recommend Welcome to Texoma as a boost for any business. I have consistently gained new customers and team members from the service over the years and I would be happy to visit with anyone about my experience with Sally and Welcome to Texoma.”

Did you know?...
Fun Fact about Our Area!
Wichita County was organized in June 1882. The city of Wichita Falls was not recognized as a fully chartered town until Sept of that year. “Legend” has it that John A. Scott, a farmer from Greenville Mississippi obtained 19 Texas land certificates, good for 640 acres each, in a poker game. He stowed them away and they were forgotten until 20 years after his death, when his heirs dedicated the land for public use, and establishing our town plat. A great portion of the town site remains the same today.

Here's How Basket Delivery Works!

Referrals of new residents are given to Sally by realtors, mortgage companies, and various networking groups. (By the way... YOU can refer too!) She calls and introduces herself and schedules a complimentary basket delivery which can be made in person or by porch drop off. Lots of wonderful information and goodies are included .
