Deborah was born in Brockton and was very proud of her Irish, Lithuanian, and Polish heritage. She loved growing up in the Village. She graduated from Cardinal Spellman High School and Framingham State College. She worked for many years in the business field. She loved life, her family, the Red Sox, doing Sudoku’s and a great meal. Her greatest joy was her grandchildren; she attended as many sports games and school events for Hayden and Hayley as she was able.
Friends and family, with masks, are invited to pay their respects on Friday, November 6th from 4-7 p.m. at Waitt Funeral Home, 850 North Main St., Brockton.
