In earlier years, Deborah enjoyed competing in the Special Olympics. Her participation in social events continued throughout her life, she was known as a social butterfly, and was happiest when she was out with family and friends.

Her family would like to thank the staff at Suffield House and her Masonicare hospice nurses for their compassionate and attentive care of Deborah throughout her stay.

To the Callan sister Marie and Debbie were friends for many years as Debbie grew up in Enfield in our neighborhood. I visited Debbie during her cancer treatments and she was always upbeat, truly amazing. The nurses at the infusion center also loved Debbie. She was a good patient and is now at peace. Marie and I will miss her. May she Rest In Peace.
