Debra was preceded in death by her son, Eric; parents, Fay and Doris; and her father and mother-in-law, Raymond and Rosemary.

Visitation will be held Monday, February 26th from 3 to 8 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home in Swanton, where the Rosary will be recited at 7:00 p.m.  Visitation will continue Tuesday, February 27th from 10 to 11 a.m. at St. Richard Catholic Church, where a Mass of Resurrection will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m., with Fr.
