Deborah was a former business owner (Drummond Point Fish Camp) and then became a Registered Nurse, which was her true passion. She retired as a Hospice Nurse.
Deborah loved her family and friends beyond measure, rescuing animals, gardening, the beach, cooking, painting, arts & crafts, and was exceptionally passionate about caring for others. She was adored by all who knew her. She will forever be remembered for her fun and loving spirit, and her fried shrimp!
She leaves behind many who will never be able to fill the hole left by her absence. Our comfort rests in knowing she is at peace, pain free, and in the arms of her Savior in Heaven. Fly high beautiful woman.
