She then enrolled in the nursing program at David Hale Fanning Trade School and became a licensed practical nurse. She worked for many years on the nursing staff at the Providence House in Worcester.
Deborah had a strong faith and a deep spiritual core. She found inspiration in religious readings.
She was a loving wife, mother and nana, devoted to her family. She also had a tremendous sense of humor. It’s not goodbye – it’s until then.
