She loved to live life to the fullest, she was a people person, she always helped and cared for others, always remembering their names and their children’s names and always asked about them she always asked the names of our servers to be personable. She had been active in the SVRAACA, a Lady of

Debi loved the beach, shelling, shopping, dancing, golfing, and MahJong as well as Roulette and Slots and she had the most amazing matching Outfits-from shoes to hats that you could imagine.

    Our deepest sympathy to the family of Debi. We went to high school with her and ALWAYS enjoyed her outgoing, fun personality. She was one of a kind and she will be greatly missed. Very sad at such a tragic loss.
