She was active in the LWML for 60 years at the local, zone and district levels, and also taught Sunday School and Bible classes for many years. Debbie is survived by her daughter Sally Hennessey (Patrick), son Philip (Elizabeth) and granddaughter Yolanda Conde (Gabriel), great-grandsons David, Gabriel and Xavier and great great grandchildren Gabriel Jr. and Reana. She was preceded in death by her husband of 61 years, her parents and her brother, Bill. Debbie and Norm relocated to Florida in 1999 and loved living in On Top of the World.
