Deb was one of my best friends in school and I have so many fond memories of the times we shared together. She was so talented and creative and always a big part of decorating our prom, my surprise 16th party, our wedding, and later our class reunions. She was vibrant, classy, and lots of fun. Even after raising our families, we still loved to get together at the winery or for a night of dancing. Deb will be dearly remembered. May these cherished memories help all our hearts to heal.

"Old Bern," Tiffany, TJ and Tenille, our hearts break for you and the whole world that this life, so loving, so comforting, so filled with laughter and joy is no longer on earth with us. But there is an eternal reward for a life like this. Deb was the perfect example of what Jesus taught us about charity, kindness, and hospitality. You were the best neighbors we ever had and we and our kids loved Deb and the beautiful family you two created. We will NEVER forget.

Deb was a cherished high school friend who shared everyday of teenage fun, adventures and girlfriend secrets! Her art talent was exceptional and her style was uniquely individual. We practiced dance moves, sang in our girl’s singing group, and spent countless hours together going to weekend dances, pool hops, bus rides to Hanover to shop, and just hanging out. When she married I saw a recent high school grad morph into a living wife and mother. Deb’s priorities changed without a second thought. She became a wife and a mother. How sad that she is not with those she loved the most but she will be watching over them from a better view. God bless you Deb!

I am so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I was glad I got to know her for a short time. She was always friendly on the phone when she called you at work and I got to chat with her for a bit. I remember spending time with her at your baby shower and having breakfast with the two of you in Westminster. I always loved hearing about the cool vacations you had with your parents and family with the themed nights your Mom would plan. Tenille you were so lucky to have such a wonderful, caring Mom. I pray that all the special memories you shared will help you through this time. Tenille, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
