Debbie, a longtime resident of Plymouth, had worked in Customer Service for many years, but her focus in life was her family. She loved the time spent with her grandchildren and was always willing to help someone in need. She had the knack for always making people laugh, and she was the life of a party.
Debbie was encouraging and generous and gave the best hugs. She loved the beach as her happy place. She was an avid hockey player in her younger years and was presented with the Bobby Orr Sportsmanship Award. She loved watching all of the New England Teams.
