DEBBY WAS FEARLESS SELLING FLOWERS ROADSIDE AT 14, RODE A HORSE NAMED PLAYBOY, LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THE BEACH, MUSIC, AND ANY OUTDOOR FESTIVAL A TRAIL BLAZER WITH A BUTTERFLY TATOO AT 16. SHE LIVED AND LOVED EACH AND EVERY MOMENT AND WAS NEVER AFRAID TO EXPERIECE NEW THINGS. SHE LOVED HARD. THE BEST OF TIMES SPENT TOGETHER TRAVELING AND BOATING WITH FAMILY. AFTER GRADUATING IN 1975 FROM CORAL GABLES HIGH, SHE MARRIED AND MOVED TO MARIN COUNTY CALIFORNIA WHERE SHE WORKED AS A PSYCHIATRIC TECH AT NAPA STATE . SHE ENJOYED TAKING HER PATIENTS ON OUTINGS NOT AN EASY TASK WITH THAT GROUP..  DEBBY HAD A DARK SENSE OF HUMOR AND WAS NATURALLY FUNNY.
