Although it has been many long years ago, I still have fond memories growing up as a next door neighbor and walking to catch the school bus on Snake Road with Debbie and her siblings.. Debbie’s sister Terri was actually in my grade, but I remember playing in each other’s backyards as children and attending Bunker Hill school together. I’m so sorry to hear of Debbie ‘s passing. From reading of all her family and friends, it sounds as though she has lived a full life and is well loved. Saddened to hear of another old friend who has left us too early, but I know she is in God’s loving grace now.

I've known Deb most of my life. She was hard working, loving, and giving. We just saw her in July. As always she was helping with her mother in law's transition to heaven. Now there are 2 plus many more of our family waiting for us. Del and family, keep her lovely spirit in your hearts. She loved you all.

To lose an angel like my Aunt Debbie is a loss to the entire world. I can’t count how many young women she took charge of and impacted. Including me. Her selflessness for so many will always be remembered and will carry through for generations to come. Our hearts break together, as she was family to everyone she cared about.
