Debi is preceded in death by her son, Justin and her mother, Joyce.
Debi was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, daughter and friend. There was nothing more important to her than her family by blood and the extended family she chose. Debi was the love of my life and the strongest woman I have ever known. She wasn’t afraid of anyone or anything, including me. We married 42 years ago and created many wonderful and memorable times that I cherish dearly. As any couple, we were met with many obstacles but the strength of two, in love, will most times overcome them. Her energy and spirits will live on in us, and we will forever be grateful for her presence in our lives. Debi made the world a better place for her having been here. Those we love never go away, they stay with us always in our hearts. Still they are always missed and loved.
A private Memorial Service will be held at a later date.
