Debra was a native of Juliet, IL and resident of Sunset for eight years. She was an artist and a traveler. She loved all things beautiful, especially her puppies, ceramics, stained glass and Italy. She was an incredibly strong woman who fought cancer for sixteen years and never once let it control what she could or could not do with her life. She remains an inspiration to her family and those whose lives she touched, and is her daughter's hero.
