Debbie Archer
a very cheerful, genuine lady, with a great sense of humor and a radiant smile. Too many of her friends and family, she was a great inspiration.
Although she was physically bond to her bed, her world knew no boundaries. Her family and caregiver Deborah made sure of that. Debbie’s world included her neighborhood as well as her family and friends. Little went on that she wasn’t informed about. Debbie chose to be part of everyone’s life, with her extension to everyone (by her phone) constantly calling to check on friends and family alike.
Billy, I always admired your compassion and love you have for your sister Debbie. You have been the epitome of “my brothers’ keeper’ in your case your sister. From midnight calls to turning a pilot light back on to making early morning runs with coffee and oatmeal. I know she has left a huge hole in your heart however, she left it full of funny memories for you to pull from. It was my pleasure to have known Debbie and her family

Debbie was my dear friend and running mate in high school and what a great friend she was! Beautiful, bold and she never seemed to meet a stranger. I was in such awe of her!
I hate that we lost touch a few years after high school but I certainly will never forget her. Deepest condolences to her family and friends. She leaves a true void in the world.
