47, of Ladyslipper Lane, passed away on Friday, August 26th at Maine Medical Center from the effects of a cardiac arrest three days earlier. As she wished, her organs have been donated to the New England Organ Bank. Born in Boston and raised in Duxbury, Massachusetts, Debbie was the daughter of Doug and Sue Gray of Duxbury and Boca Grande, Florida. She married W. Godfrey Wood in 1982 and lived in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts before moving to Falmouth in 1992. Debbie was the mother of Sidney Gray Wood, 20, and Amanda Burr Wood, 18, both starting freshman years in college, and a stepdaughter, Whitney Wood Bylin of Palm Beach, Florida. A graduate of Noble and Greenough School and of Connecticut College, Debbie was an active and accomplished skier, hiker, cyclist, and runner. Within just over a year she had recently summited all 48 of New Hampshires 4000 foot mountains, and was preparing to climb Mt. Katahdin. She recently completed the 180 mile 3 day bicycle Trek across Maine, a charitable fundraiser. Debbie worked for State Street Bank in Boston, the Church of the Redeemer in Chestnut Hill, the Portland Pirates Hockey Club, and the Falmouth School System. An active community volunteer, Debbie was devoted to the young, and served as a board member of Falmouth Soccer Boosters, coached the first girls youth soccer team in Falmouth, supported the Kids Who Care program, and had been assistant coach of the Falmouth Ski Teams. In addition to her parents, husband, children, step-daughter and countless devoted friends, Debbie is survived by her sister Dana Gray Moodey of Seattle, Washington, nieces Lily and Hope Moodey, and nephew Jack Moodey, as well as her step-grandchildren Alexander Wood Bylin and John Pillsbury Bylin of Palm Beach, Florida.
