MANN, Debra Dawn

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our matriarch. Deb passed away on Sunday, January 10, 2016 at the age of 64, at hospice in Vernon, BC after a sudden and brief struggle with cancer.

Beloved mother to daughters Sonja (Blair) and Amber (Dany); proud grandmother to Jacob and Sabrina; dear friend to former husband, Kevin; the eldest of nine siblings: Cheryl (Bart), Kim (Cormac), Ceci (Mike), Richard, Shawn (Laurel), Tracy, James; and predeceased by, Lisa.

Debbie will be greatly missed by her loving and large extended family, friends and colleagues from her long, devoted career as a Business Agent for the Hospital Employees Union and numerous facets of community service work both in Vancouver and the Okanagan, and more recently, her time as a volunteer for the Meals on Wheels program at the Schubert Centre.

Debra had a way of touching the hearts of all those she came in contact with, through her generous spirit of unconditional love and her vibrant zest for the simplest of life’s pleasures. We will be forever grateful for her teachings; her essence will live on in us and continue to uplift this world.

A service of remembrance is scheduled for Saturday, January 23, 2016 at Pleasant Valley Funeral Home at 2:00 p.m. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Debbie’s life. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Kelowna’s Gospel Mission.
