When we moved to Virden I didn't know anyone there. She took me out for coffee and introduced me to her friends. She helped me fit in.
We had a great friendship from then on! I miss her so much! What a hole she is leaving in our lives!

Deb was so kind & loving. I’ll always cherish the birthday celebrations we attended for her on Christmas Eve, countless meals she invited us to consume; that filled the air with laughter and games of crib and dice (she was the crowned winner more often than not).

My heart goes out to Paul, all her kids & grandkids, family & friends. She will be greatly missed. My sincere condolences. All our love, Steph & Dave Z.
