BLY, Debra Ann (Age 63) On May 3, 2021 Debbie Bly, loving wife of Dan Bly and mother of four children passed away at age 63. Debbie was born on February 28, 1958 in Everett WA. She schooled in Everett prior to graduating from EWU, and receiving her Master of Social Work degree from Walla Walla College in 1995, and LCSW designation in 2010. Debbie married Dan Bly of Spokane on July 25, 1981. Debbie worked with the YWCA Domestic Violence Shelter, and served as Senior Clinician with the Spokane Mental Health Crisis Response Team. Moving to Gilbert, AZ, in 2009 she worked as a Mental Health Professional at the women's correctional facility in Maricopa County. She retired due to complications from Alzheimer's Disease in 2016.

Debbie is survived by her husband Dan of Gilbert; her sister Jackie Adams of Chandler AZ; stepchildren Teri Delany, Tricia Cobb and Alan Bly all of Spokane; daughter Tia Bly of Mesa AZ; four grandchildren and three nephews. Debbie was preceded in death by her parents Jack and Delilah LeGros, and sister Pat LeGros.

Aunt Debbie,

Thank you for being by my side. Thank you for helping me with my Christmas gifts as we gathered to the left of the tree, opening gifts, near the door that was painted shut at Grandma & Grandpa’s house during the Holiday seasons. I remember your laugh, your care for others, and love of music and dancing. Thank you. Love, Trav
