Debbie will be deeply missed! Every few years I think about taking a trip back east to see all of you. I knew Debbie would be a great tour guide showing me all of the historical sites!
I’m sorry I waited too long...
My memories of Debbie will be her joy, cheerfulness, quick wit and assertiveness.
I pray for comfort for each of you...Doug, Dominic and Dawn!

It was always a delight to serve this lovely lady and her husband at Kroger. It was a pleasant surprise when I discovered we had the same first name! She fought courageously and I'll miss seeing her smiling face. May God strengthen and comfort you all at this difficult time. Debbie
