    I sure loved this woman! A fellow LEMS Warrior she was an inspiration to me and corresponded via snail mail up until Billy passed whom she is now reunited. May her sweet soul Rest In Peace.

    Wonderful amazing woman. Loved going to her house to pick up Avon books we always talked about everything while I was there. She was loved by everyone I think. Hard time and to lose a love one. Mu Dad has been gone 22 years today. Never get over it just learn to live with it

    The sky is bigger and the stars shine brighter tonight. I know with all my heart Debi is rejoicing with Jesus and her family that has gone on before. She is there with my Bob Rees, Bill Boswell and so many park people that knew and loved her deeply. I love you Debi – you were my special Angel in so many ways. You were a remarkable Soul that touched my life and so many others in a profound and blessed way.

    Debi was 4 years my junior, and as a child she was always the pretty one with the blond , almost white hair and was doted over by our grandparents . Debi was very close to my Mother, Mary Tant Chilando, and after the death of Aunt Betty, her mom, she clung to my mom as her earthly mother, it seemed. We were eager to share our mom, and loved to see Debi often. Larry, her brother spent a lot of time at our home, as we did at their home when growing up. You could never find anyone more loving and helpful than Debi to help take care of my mother later in life and even swapped clothes with momma, since they were about the same size. Debi will be missed by many .

    I had the privilege of meeting Debi when I was an Avon District Manager and she was one of my top sellers. Debi was a precious individual with such a warm loving personality. I am so sorry about her passing but I know she is reunited with Billy and celebrating her first Christmas in heaven. I feel so blessed to have known her. Prayers to her family.
