Deborah worked at Rich’s for 15 years, and at Presto Products for an additional 12 years. Up until the end of her life, she loved to laugh and have fun in whatever she did.

I would like to say a special thank you to her nurse Fran at Atrium in Neenah for the exceptional care that you provided my mother, you truly went above and beyond what we could have expected. Also to the residents at Atrium for making my moms last weeks of her life enjoyable, bringing her company and putting a smile on her face. I would like to thank Lynn West Foegen for providing my mother with friendship throughout the years and being there for our family for support. One last thank you goes to Dean Hoks for being there for my mother through her treatment and rehabilitation and giving her the best quality of life that she could have.

As per Deborah’s wishes, we will not be holding any services for her. A celebration of her life may take place in the future.


Wonderful Mother

By Patrick O’Reilly

God made a wonderful mother,

A mother who never grows old;

He made her smile of the sunshine.

And He moulded her heart of pure gold;

In her eyes He placed bright shining stars,

In her cheeks fair roses you see;

God made a wonderful mother,

And He gave that dear mother to me.
