Family and friends are sad to announce the passing of Debra (Debbie) Ruth Taylor at the age of 61 due to a second battle with cancer. Debbie is survived by her moher Joyce (Hamilton) Taylor, her sister Vicki (John Aitchison), nieces Samantha and Rebecca Schmidt, nephews Kris, Tim, Joshua, David, Mike, Justin, Jason, Wyatt, Jared and Zach Taylor and their families. Also left to mourn are uncles Patrick (Pierrette) Hamilton, Tom (Sonia) Hamilton, Joe (Donna) Taylor, Rod (Linda) Taylor, and aunts Nonie (Ernest) Ouimet, and Linda Gadoury and their families.
Debbie was predeceased by her father Don Taylor, brothers Len, Don, Kirk and Mike Taylor. Uncles Roy, Bob and Barry Taylor, Stan Hamilton and aunts Peggy (Hamilton) McPherson and Jackie (Hamilton) Draper. Grandparents Leonard and Patricia (Poulin) Hamilton, Percy and Elsie (Wallace) Taylor.
Debbie enjoyed spending time with family and friends, reading, crafting and was a "crazy cat lady". She loved her "timmies". She worked in office administration for many years, in Alberta and southern Ontario as well as locally. She managed Northern Shores Motel and Cottages for many years and met a variety of people and made some good friends. She watched the sunrise many mornings.
Cremation has taken place. As per Debbie's wishes, there will be no services. The family will hold a private Celebration of Life in the new year.
If desired donations to the Care Close to Home campaign would be greatly appreciated.
