Not sure what to say?

I was a year behind Debbie in our Catholic high school in Marshfield. I remember her very well. Like Tracy, she was a very talented and intelligent person. I particularly remember her playing the part of the Caterpillar in our Columbus High musical Alice in Wonderland. It was hilarious. I offer my deepest and sincerest condolences to both the Daniels and the Schanz families.

those that we love dont go away there always walking be hind us Debbie will truly be missed

Jarry and family-
Our thoughts and prayers go out to you all during this difficult time. Now, when you gaze at the stars in the night sky, imagine Debbie shining through - letting you know she is still happy. Her shining disposition and warm personality made a lasting impression on all the lives she touched. We will all hold her memory gently in our hearts.

Jerry & family:
Knowing Debbie's sunny disposition, I suspect she would tell us all ~ "Remember me with smiles and laughter, as that's how I'll remember you. If you can only remember me with tears, then don't remember me at all." You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Jerry and Family,

I am so sorry to hear about Debbie. She was such a wonderful person and friend. The short time that we worked together for TC Schools was very special. I enjoyed receiving her emails where she kept me updated about her family, who she was so proud of, and especially enjoyed receiving the "after Christmas" newsletters she had sent after you had moved downstate. She will truly be missed. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Many of us up here in Grayling have you in our thoughts and prayers.

To all the family members,

Deb was my daughter, Sheila's, roommate at St. Cloud State, and in the years since, Deb became a treasured friend of Sheila's family. I am so grateful for the friendship that Deb and Sheila have had, and she will be greatly missed.

Last year on Sheila's 40th birthday, Deb drove to Minnesota on a Tuesday evening to share in Sheila's surprise party. We were all delighted to see her, and we will fondly remember Deb as the bouncy, happy,...

We are saddened to hear about this and our prayers are with all of you. (from Michael & Pam Ayers, son of Kitty (Zoellner) & Tom Ayers
