    Mrs Marks, Kim and Lori, I am so sad to hear of Debbie's passing. I went to school with Kim and didn't know Debbie well until we worked together at Shari's Hideaway in Orchard Park. We spent a lot of time together and had so many laughs and I will remember her fondly. My deepest condolences to you all in this difficult time.

    Doreen. Kim, Lori and family,
    I am so sorry to hear of Debbie's passing. I have such wonderful memories growing up in Peachland and hanging out with you all. She was a wonderful person. It breaks my heart that she has left us way too soon. Sending my heartfelt condolences to you all.

    Mrs. Marks, Kim, and Lori: I am also so saddened to hear of Debbie's passing. This is a beautiful picture of her! Kim, my biggest memory of Debbie is when she would go out (probably with Sue) and we would sneak in to her bedroom downstairs and listen to her NEW Fleetwood Mac record. She would have killed us if she knew! :) Its so tragic to see someone of her age in the obituary page. My heart goes out to all of you. God Bless

    I too went to school with Debbie at Pringle. Fun to be around. My heart too is very heavy. My condolences to her family, hold your memories close to your heart.

    I am so sorry to read this. I feel a heaviness in my chest as the shock hits. I hung out (and went to highschool) with Debbie at George Pringle. We used to drive a 100 miles each Friday and Saturday night in the summer cruising the "strip" in Kelowna up and down Bernard Ave. In those days, it was $10 a night...and that wasn't easy to scrounge up.
    Oh how we used to laugh!!! My most heartfelt condolences to the whole family.
