The staff and residents of Langdon Place of Keene were and still are so saddened to learn of Deb's sudden passing. A resident just spoke to her a few days before and shared joyfully her conversation with her. We have missed her visits on Monday afternoons with Seamus and Boom due to the COVID pandemic and are heartbroken to not see her again. Her memory will reside within each of us as her visits were so enjoyed and appreciated throughout the years.
We extend our heartfelt sympathies and love to her family including Seamus and Boom. Linda

Deb and I have been friends since about 1982 and worked together for many years, but our friendship did not exist simply for that reason. We shared many wonderful memories over the years. Whether we were walking her dogs, chatting about anything ar decorating a room, we always had a great time. Volunteering for Project Graduation was fun when I was doing this with her as well participating in Women's Retreat at Camp Takota. i have so many good times that will keep her memory alive. She will be missed and I am blessed to have had her in my life.

I met Deb decades ago with my family through Cheshire Kennel Club. She became my 4H leader and introduced me to dog showing. Later I babysat her son. I remember being devastated when her Irish setter stole cupcakes from the counter while I was putting her son to bed.
15 years ago, I joined NGM, and was pleased to meet her again as a coworker. I have many fond memories of her kindness and willingness to share her knowledge. Deb will be greatly missed.

Bob and Family,
There are no words to take away your pain, please know you are all in my thoughts and heart. May fond memories of a life taken to soon help you all through this difficult loss. Give the boys a good pat for me and I am sure it was comforting to have them with her. Now she will rejoin the rest of her crew across that Rainbow bridge.
With sincere thoughts, Kathy Winsor

My Mom and I have several fond memories of Deb, mostly involving Deb and a newfie at class, or doing therapy work. She was always a bright light. Her friendship is one I will always cherish.

Deb, my friend, and things I will always cherish about her:
She was the backbone of Paws to Read, and so passionate about all her therapy dog work with her beautiful Newfs, Seamus and Boom. She appeared to spend more hours following her heart in this work post-retirement than when she was otherwise employed previously. She brought joy to every demographic in the region and never said no to any responsibilities attached to keeping therapy programs running.
So many hours spent with my "lunch buddy". We shared so many experiences as like-minded women with a progressive bent. Always so proud of her family (human and canine) - I'll never forget her saying "I promise I'll put my phone away after I show you this", only to have her remember something equally amusing or fun that she just had to share. She always ordered mac and cheese, no matter where we went.
Her colorful and festive nails were certainly her only allowance to vanity, and it was always fun to see what she was rocking each week. They were always perfect.
Deb understood my anxiety issues and never judged, only offered support, help and a sympathetic ear; a trait I'll always love her for. A huge heart and a level head.
Her last words to me were " Wishing you well and hoping we all stay safe. We'll have lunch together yet!".
Impossible that she's left us all so suddenly, when we clearly need her still.
Rob, your lady love will be truly missed, and you have our deepest sympathy during this dark time.

I met Deb at the National Grange. She and Gail were there for me when my father passed. I meet her Newfee's in Westmoreland. To her husband and family, I am so sorry for your loss! Karen

There are plenty of dogs to greet!

I knew Deb through the NCNE and the NCA. She was generous with her time and her kindness. My condolences to Bob and her family members. I will miss her and traveling with her.

We have been deeply saddened by the news of Deb's passing. Our deepest sympathies to Bob and the family. We only knew Deb for a short time through the NCNE but we thoroughly enjoyed her visit with Bob (and the Newfies) visit with us at our home as well as our many e-mails back and forth. She was a very warm and caring person. She will be greatly missed by many.

DEBBIE was a member of a select group of very close and caring people. We were always together and always there for one another. She was a special person and gifted with the ability to connect with someone and share in their problems. I will miss her and share in Bobs grief and loss. I am glad that she and Bob were able to enjoy some time together. You are always with us , and you will be in our hearts and memories until we join you. So long for now .
