Deb was a long time employee of ICBC and leaves behind many friends. She had a special bond with her grandkids and they will miss her everyday especially the random outings they use to have travelling all over the city. She use to joke about the fact that her car had a pull to it when she went past the casino so it wasn’t her fault that she ended up in there. She had a huge heart and was always there to listen if you needed a friend to talk to.
