As I light this candle I am reminded of the lovely lady it commemorates. Her beautiful spirit and light will always live on in my heart. Deb….you are so greatly missed. The void we feel will be replaced by the wonderful memories we shared, the laughter and joy and solving the problems of the world. I know you are resting in peace, dear friend.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Dear Allison and family, Chris and I are saddened by your loss. Your beautifully worded obituary keeps the light of your mom vibrant for all of us to feel. Your mom was an incredible person and lived such a life! I remember when our families were lucky enough to overlap while visiting VA at the same time and your mom was so kind to Keagan and Sienna while we were swimming in the pool. Her deep intelligence, dedication to service and love for travel lives on in you, my friend. We are thinking about you all, and holding you in our hearts. Love, Kendall, Chris and families

My heart aches from the news of Debbie's passing. It has been over 20 years since we were together...if my memory serves me well. We both volunteered at the Silverbrook Library, served on the PTA and coached Allison and Nicholas' Odyssey of the Mind team. We spent many hours talking, and I always appreciated Debbie's well thought out interpretations. Her calm demeanor and no nonsense comments were so appreciated. BUNCO was oh so much more fun thanks to Debbie...the consummate entertainer. It is so very hard to accept that Debbie has left this earth. I am so very thankful for the time we spent together all those years ago. Her spirit and legacy live on in Bruce, Laura, Allison, sons in law and her beautiful grandchildren; not to forget all the friends and extended family as well. What a blessing Debbie was for us all.

Schoemer family…we will keep in our thoughts the many happy times we shared with your parents, from timing at HS swim meets, to attending NJHS induction at the middle school for our kids. Graduation from W&M and the USNA. At the wedding of our kids and the celebration of our grandchildren’s births. Debbie will be sorely missed but her daughters carry her heart with them every day.
