Debra Michael

MICHAEL, Debra Ann (nee Johnson)

It is with deepest sorrow that we share the news of Debra’s passing on August 4th, 2011.

After many courageous battles with cancer over the past 16 years, Deb passed away peacefully in Nanaimo, B.C.

She will be remembered for her passion for life, and the pride and love she held for her children.

Deb will be greatly missed by her children, Lena and Matt, son-in-law, Steve, fiancé Taz Gammill, brother Gordon Johnson and his family, as well as numerous cousins, nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles. Deb had a large extended family who will also miss her: step-daughter Michelle, step-daughter Bevie, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

We thank you Mom for helping us overcome life’s challenges and for celebrating its blessings with us. We will miss your laugh, your tears, your hugs, and your love.

At Deb’s request, there will be no service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Nanaimo Palliative Care Unit in Deb’s memory.
