Debi was a long time Scotiabank employee and proud to be married to a veteran. Debi and Rudy wintered for many years in Cypress Woods Florida and idled the hours away playing mahjong and pickleball with her fellow snowbirds.
With Rudy’s military career they lived all over Canada and her volunteer spirit was appreciated by every community she lived in. Active in Rotary and the Catholics Women’s League, Debi loved helping those in need. Their love of travel didn’t stop when Rudy retired. They traveled the world exploring with family and friends.
Debi would want everyone to celebrate her life, not mourn her death.,.. so please raise a glass (of diet coke and Southern Comfort) and share your favourite memories of Debi.
In lieu of flowers the family requests a donation to be made in her memory to a charity of your choice. Courtney-Winter’s Funeral Homes were in care of the arrangements.
