Debbie worked as a legal secretary for 20 years, working 8 years for IBM. She was never to busy to volunteer to help people. When living in Lindenhurst, NY she was involved in feeding the homeless for over 5 years which carried through when moving to North Carolina. Her latest time was spent volunteering to raise money for many different projects. The last project was a memorial bench that was dedicated just 1 month before she passed.

Travel was a true passion of Debbie’s from the casinos in Atlantic City, NJ, Las Vegas, NV to the beautiful islands of St. Marten and Aruba. She loved to be around friends and entertain and throw a good party! She will forever be missed by many.
