I was saddened to hear about the passing of Debra. She worked for me about 4 or 5 years ago and I think of her often. She was a great employee and a great person.

Wesley, Courtney and family, I was very shocked and saddened to hear of your Mother's passing. She was one of a kind. As others have said, whenever I think of her, I see her big smile and can hear her wonderful laugh. I first knew her in high school, then when we volunteered together at the food bank. Debbie always had a story to tell and was so animated as she told it, whether it was good or bad, and usually ended with laughter. Please except my sincere condolences. She will be missed.

June, Shirley and Donna Sandercock - May 21, 2022

Joan, Courtney, Wesley and family, Our deepest sympathies to all of you on the passing of Debra. Debra had that laugh that I can still hear now and that look when she was adamant about something she said. She would sneak up on you in a store and it's like hello. I saw her April 24th and we had what would be our last chat. I couldn't believe it when I heard the news and I hope she's up in heaven catching up with her dad. You all have another angel shining brightly down on each one of you. I hope the memories bring comfort and that you all know how much she'll be missed. Rest In Peace Debra.

Sue Campbell - May 20, 2022

Always enraptured in Deb’s presence. Who wouldn’t be? Between her massive smile, huge infectious laugh and the look on her face when she was ready to tell you something that was under her skin. I’d always laugh and say, “ sorry can’t help it” because of her multitude of facial expressions. She was a very special rare gem and I cannot believe I will never see nor hear all of her again. Wesley and Courtney I’m so very sorry. Both of you please stay close as she would want. Love Auntie Sue.

Diane - May 19, 2022

Wanda Douglas - May 19, 2022

I am so saddened to hear about Debra. I knew Debra for many years and went to school together. Did not see each other very often. Different life styles I guess. Seen her a little while ago at Walmart and what was to be a quick trip in and out, turned out to be an hour just catching up. Her smile would light up the world and her laugh was infectious. You will surely be missed by your family and friends. May you rest in peace.

Cindy and Kaz - May 19, 2022

We can't believe it! Laura sent me the picture of you waving and I was sure I was going to see you again. You will be missed but never forgotten my dear friend. ❤

Judy Marsden - May 19, 2022

Wes and Courtney I am so sorry for your loss. Such a proud Mom, she beamed whenever she talked of you.

A real ray of sunshine. Cherish your memories. RIP Deb.

Sorry for the loss of your mom and to Mrs Grills, the loss of your daughter. Debbie was a longtime friend, since Sunday school / elementary school. May not have connected much, but facebook had us back in touch and had a couple chats. She was so genuine, and her laugh I still remember! Thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

Angel Mariee - May 19, 2022

She was such a beautiful woman thru and thru, the sunshine glowed around her. She was that Mom that would take any child in. She treated Courtney and Wesley’s friends as they were her own children as well. Her heart was gold. She loved with no condition but unconditionally. She was funny, loving and her home was full of love and warmth. This isn’t goodbye. It’s see you when I see you.
