BRACKETT, Deborah Ann, September 24, 1970 – May 11, 2004. Loving wife and mother, passed away in Peace Arch Hospital in the arms of family at the age of 33. You gave all of us strength Debbie as you fought so hard to remain with the family you cherished so much. You left nothing to chance as you planned for their future without you. You will be missed more than words can say.
Debbie is survived by her loving husband Ross; children Isabel, Jacob and Gordon; parents Jim and Mary; sister Barb (Randy) Toppozini; brother Doug; grandmothers Evelyn Winter and Kaye Swan; Aunt Eleanor Nichol and Uncle John (Marj) Dormer; mother and father-in-law Harry and Norene; brother-in-law Luke (Shelby), sister-in-law Janet (Kelly) Scott; nieces Tara-Lynn, Cassidy and Emma; nephews Greg and Weston; cousins John, David, Julie, Lynn, Suzie and many loving friends.
A special thanks to all the Doctors who participated in Debbie’s treatment and care, the prayers of so many, the love and support of neighbours from Latimer Elementary School, Sharon United Church, family and friends with fundraising, gifts of casseroles and baking, will never be forgotten. Special thanks also to the staff in Palliative Care, for their care and compassion and to Shelley Page for making Debbie’s final days more comfortable. A Celebration of her Life will be held on Thursday, May 20, 2004 at 11:30 am in the South Langley Mennonite Brethren Church, 20098 – 22 Ave, Langley, B.C. Refreshments to follow. Debbie’s final resting place will be Valley View Memorial Gardens, Surrey.
