  1. My sincere condolences to Deborah’s family. I worked with her at the OB Town Hall, and appreciated her skills as the IT manager, as well as just enjoying her as a fellow employee. I am so sorry to hear of her passing.

  2. My Thoughts and Prayers are with my Uncle Edmund and his Family.
    I wish I could be there with you during this difficult time.
    We will forever miss and love her.
    Sending you all my Love from New Jersey.
    God Bless you all.

  3. Deb was instrumental in guiding me through my first few years as a newly elected tax collector for the town of Oak Bluffs many years ago.
    I will always be grateful for her teaching me the ropes in those first few years. Lots of laughs lots of memories
    The lord has called her home. May her family find peace knowing she is at rest and find strength in their loving memories
