Condolence from Smith & Ellis Anthony on September 21st, 2010 10:25 am

Schedule, sons, daughters, brothers and sisters & grandchildren
I was deeply saddened , yesterday morning when I got a phone call from my brother Hibbert and his wife Josie, telling me tthat Deb had passed away. I have many fond memories of Deb when we were growing up . She spent a lot fo time at our house with me and my late sister Joyce. My mom just loved her to pieces. It has been quite a while since I last saw her but we would always reminisce of days gone by and we would catch up with each other on our families. Deb had a great smile and was very good natured.
Smith and I extend our deepest sympathy to all the family.

What a shock to hear of Aunt Debbie’s passing. She was so sweet, loved to see her when she visited mom and I would just happen along.I remember how she loved to swim and i enjoyed swimming with her and mom years ago at the Milton pool. Love the picture that you have posted of her. It really shows how beautiful she was, both inside and out. I know mom will miss her dearly but she will always be with her in her heart and memories. Just know she is with her family and is loved. xo Cindy (Rhyno) Borden

Condolence from Susan Lane on September 27th, 2010 7:39 pm

It is with sadness that I write having just heard of Deb’s passing. Debbie worked with us at Lane’s for many years and remained a loyal friend. Deb always inquired about our parents and the inn. She hadn’t worked at Lane’s for many years, but always seemed like such a big part of who we are today.

Our thoughts and prayers go to her family ( many of whom followed her footsteps and worked with us). The only thing that makes a time like this bearable is a large, loving famiy like yours. We’ll always miss your smiling face, Deb.

Condolence from Cindy (Cunningham) MacPherson on September 29th, 2010 4:43 pm

To the Roy family,

So sorry to hear of Deb’s passing. She was one of the nicest people in the world. I know how hard it is to lose someone that you love, my thoughts are with you all.

Condolence from Esmar Hansen on October 6th, 2010 4:25 pm

In memory of Debby (Elva) Roy (Westhaver)

I was surprised and very sad when I got the news, at Sea, that you had passed away.
You were my mother in-law and you were a good mother in-law.
We had a very good relationship and the warmt and respect between the two of us was mutual. I thank you so very much for that.
You came a lot to the home at Barss St. and later at Cowie St. and I always enjoyed your company.
I was always welcome at your home and never did I leave your kitchen, hungry. You were always there with the good word. Thank you for that, too.
I will always remember you as a very special one who passed my path.
With deepest respect.
