I would like to thank you Deb for all that you have
taught me about nursing. I could not have asked for a better teacher. You have shown me patience, kindness, and the value
of a human life. I am so sorry that in the last few days I did not have the answers that you were searching for, though it
seems like someone on a higher throne had them for us. My thoughts and prayers are with your family, I know how much they
meant to you. In an ordinary person, I would worry about their loved ones now that you are gone, however, I know you and what
an extraordinarily great job you did and how proud you are of your children, I know they will be alright. You will be in my
thoughts every time I put on a nursing uniform. Love You.
Deb was not here by chance but by God's choosing.
hand formed her and made her the person she was. He compared her to no one else- she was one of a kind. She lacked nothing
that His grace couldn't give her. He allowed her to be here at this time in history for a short time to fulfill His
special purpose for this generation.
Deb was a very special person to alot of people. She was kind, understanding
and always tried to find the good in all people. She also was a very kind, compassionate nurse and her residents were always
the most important thing to her. May she rest in peace.
Prayers and thoughs are with the family at this time. I remember Deb when we worked together at Carlisle Hospital.
always was smiling and nice to work with.

As the mother of one of my best friends, Debbie
was also like a second mother to me for much of my childhood years. She and her whole family opened heart & home to me
and I am so blessed to have known her. I am sad that she had such a long bout with illness but thankful that she is
no longer suffering. She was much loved...and will be greatly missed.
I was saddened to read of your mothers' passing. John,
I met you when your mother and my mother were roommates at ManorCare. This wasn't where they first met, Mom babysat your sister,
Jennifer. I wish my mother could have seen Jennifer. She is not doing well, and I was trying to figure out how I could contact
Debbie to let her know. Now, I know they will meet again soon with no pain or worries. Take care and know what a wonderful
person your mother was and always will be. Take care.

Deb was one of those wonderful, rare people whom God brings
across our path in life and we are never quite the same. She was a loving, kind person full of encouragement and helped me
through some difficult times in life. She was giving, loved her family, loved the Lord, loved her friends, loved to laugh.
I was blessed to have known her as a long-time, dear friend. I will miss her.

Having known Debbie well during the younger years of the
children I was always sure the kids would have a good Christian environment and an excellent mother to care for their every
need. She was fun to be around and a loving friend. To my loss, I lost touch when I moved to Texas. I know she will be greatly
missed and I know her family knows she is with our Lord where we will join her in due time. Love and prayers to the family.
I MISS EVERYTHING ABOUT HER
AND SHE WAS A GOOD PERSON TO
My deepest sympathy to Deb's family at your time of great
loss. I knew Deb through the WOW bible study at BiC church, and appreciated and admired her dedication and selfless service.
A warm, caring woman who will be missed by so many.
I regret that I will not be able to attend the service, as I am working
Love in Christ to you all,
My thoughts are with John and the family. It was
a blessing to have known your mom. What a great lady. I always enjoyed conversations with her.
Like so many others
who were drawn by Debbie's charm, courage and warmth, we are deeply grieved by her death. The world has lost someone
very special. We have so many wonderful memories to cherish. Our love to the family.

Our deepest condolences and prayers are with all of you

John, my deepest sympathy to you and your family.Your
mother was a wonderful woman with a contagious smile. She will be missed by all. She must have a very special
mission to complete for God.
My heart is hurting this day over the loss of a dear friend
who is responsible for the beginning of my spiritual journey some 20 years ago. Due to changes in our lives, we were
unable to see each other regularly like we did back then. I will never forget her benevolent heart and unceasing giving
of her time, talents and possessions to anyone in need. Her love touched so many lives - young and old.
What a role model she was for all who knew her. She was truly an angel sent by God. Blessings to all of her family.
Tim and I were extremely sad to hear of the passing of
Deb...my heart reaches out to her children. Tim and I were both blessed to have worked with Deb in church in the past. Tim
and Deb taught a young pioneer boys group together called Whirly Birds and I was involved in a ladies bible study with her
about 23 years ago. I was always amazed at her generous spirit and her steadfastness at working with disadvantaged families.
When I knew her, she was responsible for our bible study reaching out to the children and families who resided, at that time,
at the Molly Pitcher. She had a big heart and will be missed by many whose lives she touched over the years.
sympathy for the family's loss...Tim and Julie March
You fought a good battle with many things these past months.
I am glad to have had the time with you and have our private chats along with laughter from our days working together at Carlisle
Hospital. I will miss your wit, smile and your stories of your twins. You will be missed but never forgotten. You have left
me with many good memories and a hopeful heart of healing. You are a wonderful person and now are fully healed. You are with
the Great Father above and celebrate with him with your eternal life.
Deb was such a Godly woman-I can imagine her huge
smile now as she is rejoicing!!! My heart and prayers are with you John, Jen and Jeremy, that God will give you strength,
comfort and wisdom now and in the future.
