Debbie was a true friend. She was a fighter. The last time that i went to see her in Shadyside all she talked about is getting better. Walking on her own driving her car and getting healthy again.She was the bravest Lady and most loving friend that i ever known.Fly high with the Angels Beautiful Lady and i know ill see you again someday and we will talk and never miss a beat like true friends do
There are no words to express my sadness at hearing about Debbie’s passing, she was like a sister to me. I will hold her in my heart forever. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Debbie was like a sister to us. I have know her from the time she was a little girl coming down to “Aunt Yole’s ” house, and then she came to work for us at the pizza business. Debbie was always a go getter! She started out the way most employees do a cook. And quickly rose to manager position. Soon she became the manager of the St Clairsville store and then set her sites on owning her own store..I will always be proud to know Debbie.When she set her sites on something she got it…. Her kind heart was always helping others. We will always Love and miss her!
I went to high school with Debbie. She was the sweetest person. Prayers for your family. Rest easy Debbie
