Deborah will be most remembered for her love for her family. Her favorite moments were Sunday dinners at her house or enjoying a game of cards with her children or grandchildren. Her home was her happy place and was always filled with love and laughter. She had a kind, loving and graceful heart and always put others first. She was at her happiest with a baby in her arms. She fostered numerous children, for over 30 years, and was a mother figure to so many more within her community, which is how she gained the nickname, Mama Kwi. Her home was open to everyone and was a place of warmth and comfort as you stepped through the door and once you did, she was bustling around the kitchen to make sure you had a home cooked meal. Her genuine heart and character came from a life that was guided strongly by her faith, she took comfort in the word of the Lord.
