LUCAS – Debra Lee. June 13, 1953 –

August 22, 2013. It is with heavy hearts that we announce Debra’s sudden passing. She is survived by her loving partner of 28 years Gregor Tirrell and many relatives in various places. She is predeceased by her parents Milton and Edna and her brother Dale. This extraordinary woman managed to do so much and touch so many people in her relatively short life. Debra was born and raised in Fernie. She moved to Abbotsford in her 20’s, where she took up Skydiving with a passion and competed very successfully for many years. She had a career with CPR as a train dispatcher and was able to leave in her 40’s. She then became a golf pro and taught lessons for several years. Golf was a great passion of her’s also. Debra was always willing to help people and did so right to the end by successfully donating organs to transplant recipients on her last day. She will be loved and sorely missed. In lieu of flowers please donate to BC Organ Transplant Society, BFM Thrift Store or a charity of your choice.

A Celebration of Debra’s Life will be held on Sunday, September 8th, 2013 at 11:00am at Garden Hill Funeral Chapel, 11765 224th St, Maple Ridge.
