    Deb took several classes with me over the years at CLEAR. I always looked forward to seeing her. Deb’s wonderful sense of humor and ability to see the ridiculous made her especially great to work with. I will miss her. God bless you my friend.

    My heart goes out to Deb’s family. She was a treasure.

  2. Gary Blumenthal Says:

    I am very sorry to read of Debra’s passing. I appreciated Debra’s lifelong fight for justice for people with disabilities. She had high expectations for the people who were entrusted with authority. I was happy to have her as my friend, as my constituent when I was a legislator and as colleague at JCDS. I will miss her.

  3. Courtney Barden Says:

  6. Sue Coughlin Says:

    Deb and I always teased each other about which one of us was the “older” cousin….will miss her and her phone calls that started with:
    “Hey, Cuz”,

    and ended with:
    “I love you”.

  8. Carol Zeller Says:

    From the time we were kids (cousins)I’ve always thought of Debra during baseball season – she was such a fan! I’ll miss our Christmas greetings.
