Fain, Debra - East Providence  
FAIN, DEBRA 59, passed away suddenly on June 29th. She was the beloved daughter of Lois Fain and the late Burt Fain, sister of Frederick Fain, and wife of the late musician Paul Murphy. Upon hearing the Beatles for the first time, Debbie just knew she was destined for a life of rock and roll. She became an integral member of the fabric of the music community in RI and all of New England. She was a crew member for Roomful of Blues and then was road manager for The James Montgomery Band for several years, performing with a selflessness usually reserved for saints. She made sure that everyone in the band got exactly what they needed so every show came off perfectly. She got to meet music greats like B.B. King, Mick Jagger, Aerosmith, and Buddy Guy and the bands and people at clubs were like a second family. Debbie loved cats, and the dogs she owned were among the most fortunate on earth. Watching the speed, grace and beauty of race horses filled her with wonder. Animals seemed to quickly understand Debbie and gravitate toward her. She felt blessed by a tight circle of old friends and also had a gift for putting strangers at ease. She was intelligent, sincere, unpretentious and nonjudgmental. Debbie adored her parents Lois and Burt like no others. They were her world, her anchor. A memorial service will be held Thursday, July 2, 11 AM at the Sugarman Sinai Memorial Chapel, 458 Hope Street, Providence, RI 02906. Burial will be private. Shiva will be held at the residence of Lois Fain Thursday afternoon 2-4 and Thursday night 7-9. Donations may be made to the Potter League for Animals, PO Box 412, Newport, RI 02840 or the charity of your choice. For information and condolences visit www.sugarmansinai.com
