Debbie was the person who would do anything for anyone. She was always eager to lend a hand and make a new friend. She loved her job as a PCW at Arbourstone Enhanced Care before retiring after 38 years. She had one daughter, but could count dozens of others she met on her life's journey as her children as well, most of whom have a favourite Debbie story to tell. Debbie was the biggest AC/DC fan, earning the nickname “AC/DC Mama” from many of those she worked with. She loved her movies and she loved her books, with stacks of both never far away from where she was.
Debbie’s family would like to extend a special thanks to the staff at the QEII who made her final hours comfortable; friends, David Boyce and Annie Spaargaren; brother-in-law, Joey and sister-in-law, Angela; and the many others who reached out during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, Debbie had wished for donations to be made to Arbourstone Enhanced Care Resident Council.
