Retired KGH Lab Technician (30+ years).
It is with great sadness that the family of Debbie announce her sudden passing on Wednesday, July 6, 2022, while on holidays in Ireland. Debbie enjoyed travelling and it provides some comfort knowing that she passed away doing something she loved. She also loved camping in Ontario’s provincial parks with her cherished furry companions Higgins and Taryn. Debbie met many people and made new friends on her camping adventures. She was always willing to give a helping hand or advice to people who were new to camping.
Predeceased by her beloved husband John Bylsma in 2015. Dear sister of Rob Bosman (Helga), Pauline Bosman (Lorne), Eric Schneider and Mona Schneider. Deeply missed by her nephews Ryan (Katie) and Nick (Megan), her great nieces and great nephew Roxanne, Bennett, Hadley and Millie, her uncle Henk, her cousin Michel (Sacha) and their children Tom and Sam. Also missed by her step-children Angela Bylsma and Derek Bylsma and their families and her extended family in New Brunswick and the Netherlands.
A Celebration of Debbie’s Life will be held at 132 Desmond Road, Yarker, Ontario on Saturday, September 10, 2022 from 1-4 pm. For those desiring, please consider a memorial donation to Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre in Napanee, Ontario.
Arrangements entrusted to Payne Funeral Home, 178 Main St., Odessa, Ontario K0H 2H0 (613-386-7373).
