Dearest Sis, you were laid to rest today! It still feels so unreal. I have tried not to think about the fact that you are really gone cause each time i tried my heart hurts even more. You were such a treasure, you loved everyone uniquely and personalized all your relationships. There was never a time you didn't have something nice to say about someone, you had a way of making everyone feel special when they are with you. "UK babe" as you would call me, with so much energy and excitement when ever we met. I can still hear you voice and see your beautiful smile. You are always ready to cheer people on and support them when ever you could.
I remember when my mom joined us in Canada, very quickly you warmed up to her and even started giving her gifts, she nicknamed you "Nọ1 grandma" cause you called my baby your grandchild.
Oh precious sister Debbie! You will be deeply missed.
Rest well, till we meet again on that glorious morning.
Goodbye Nọ1 grandma
Goodbye my darling Sis

My dear sister Debbie you were such a treasure and a blessing to those around you. I remember when we first met years back you had wanted me to join your cell but I had already committed elsewhere, you said it’s okay we are still one big family. You then went ahead to point out your husband to me and said you see then husband dark guy there, he is my husband. I thought that was such a striking description and that comment stayed with me.
It was indeed an honour spending time with you and getting to know you. You had such a lovely smile, your commitment to the things of God was evident and you were always there to give yourself to make things run smoothly. You were highly dependable and sincere about your feelings. You use to call me gorgeous and I use to call you that too right back. I remember our last conversation and how beautiful you looked that day.
Your pet/nick names for those around you showed your warmth, your outspokenness made those around you sure of where they stood with you. Your motherly instincts was also truly remarkable. Your sense of fashion and style was also admirable and the way you carried yourself showed confidence. You were indeed a star and your memory will live on, I love you and miss you.
You were truly a treasure and no one can take your place, a rare gem. It truly hurts to let go of such a beautiful treasure as you but my consolation is that you are in a better place. Rest well my beautiful sister, till we meet again.

My Shine, Shine Sister Debbie: Shining Like the Stars Forever

I first met Sister Debbie here in church in 2011 as a young beautiful bride. And I have watched over these 13years of sisterhood and friendship how she evolved from being a young bride to becoming a go getter and a loving mother to her three sons (David, Darius & Darren).
Debbie was a very hardworking and determined person. I remember when she first arrived it was like a matter of weeks before she got her first job in the education sector but it was in the South even though she lived in the North. She was not deterred by the distance, the unpredictable Calgary weather that is always changing or any other inconveniences; she made the commute everyday in good spirit knowing that, the condition is subject to change. These qualities of hers propelled her to quickly re-trained to work in the health sector where she was until her transitioned unto glory.
As a wife Debbie was selfless and supportive of her husband. I remember when the oil price crashed during the NDP era & many in the oil and gas sector lost there jobs; Debbie was very supportive of her husband and exhibited the virtuous woman she was in her home.
Sister Debbie has a warm personality, always full of smiles and of a pleasant demeanour that anyone meeting her for the first time is comfortable in her presence. She calls me my Shine, Shine Deaconess and I in turn will greet her my Shine, Shine Sister Debbie. If I want to crack her up …. I will say my Shine, Shine Sis Debbie of the most high God possessor of Heaven and Earth. And she will just burst out laughing and will say Deaconesssssssss….
The book of Daniel 12: 3 says “Those who are wise shall shine Like the brightness of the firmament, And those who turn many to righteousness Like the stars forever and ever.”
My shine, shine Sister Debbie turned many to righteousness through her many partnerships with our dear man of God Pastor Chris while she was on this side of heaven and is now truly shining ever so brightly like the stars forever!
Debbie, your memories I will ever treasure. May your lovely soul rest in the bosom of our Lord until we meet at the rapture, to part no more.
Adieu dearie😘 you will always remain my shine, shine sister Debbie!

Our Sisterhood started 13 years ago. During these 13 years of friendship, you always declare your love for the Gospel. A dedicate Children’s Church teacher, an incredible Mom, not just to your children, but to other children as well.
I admired your selfless nature, your beautiful smile that always lights one’s heart, because your smiles are pure and real.
You were truly the brightest light, full of God’s Life.
There is nothing that I can say that will ease the pain of your early departure. However, one thing that I know for sure, that you fought a good fight and won your race.
I will always remember your birthdays and will not forget your three incredible children.
I will say goodbye with one of your favourite phrase “The Christian Behaviour”.
I will missed you, I love you.
🕊️🕊️ Rest On Sister🕊️🕊️

My dear sister Debbie, your departure has left an irreplaceable void in our hearts. You embodied love in its purest form, touching everyone with your warmth, kindness, and unwavering compassion. Your laughter was a melody, your smile a beacon of hope. Though you are no longer with us, your spirit continues to light our way. You lived with a heart full of love, and that love will forever be our guiding star. Rest in Glory beloved Debbie. Your memory will be cherished always. Thank you for all your labour of Love in the house of the Lord❤️💜

Dearest Sis Debby, rest well! A wonderful woman and mother! You were the first sister to discern what my sons needed when we first landed. Brought items that your sons were still even using for my son to use, because you are loving and kind and you knew we needed those things just by discernment. A true woman of God and friend and dear sister to the brethren. You always make me laugh out loud when we meet up after working in church. I know you are in a better place and I thank God we will see again. Love you dear! Rest in the Lord.

Dearest Sis Debbie, always accommodating, always smiling, always ready for a chat, and also very generous. I miss you dearly. You were always cheerful after every Church service, such fun to be with. You made a great impression on me when our families met by chance at the Calgary Stampede in July 2018. I will always cherish our times together in Church, and at restaurants. At restaurants, you sat with me on purpose, wanting to hear the quiet Sis Tolu talk. It was always a pleasure to be in your company. Since your passing, I have been looking at our pictures together - beautiful memories. I try not to cry, knowing you're in a much better place with the Lord. See you again my dearest sister at the rapture.❤️💖

Pure heart.
Sweet soul.
No guile.
All round loving.

My first interaction with you was a pleasant one and it resulted in cordiality between us thereafter.

Your lovely compliments about my outfits and how I would tease yours was my size and that we should exchange.

You would say to some of us whenever we’re around you “oya oya when are you people marrying” and we would laugh and respond to you “very soon”

At every sight of me, you said to me “I love you” after we exchanged pleasantries.
I love you very much too Auntie Debbie, and I wish I said it to you more with a big hug especially the Sunday we spoke over a bag of chips if I knew that would be the last time I was going see you.

You exude peace and joy, and being around you was always a thing of great joy.

Thank you for exemplifying Christ-like character in word and in deed.

You live on!!!!!
Your light continues to shine brightly!!! I love you ❤️❤️

Dear Debbie,
It will be impossible to forget you dear Debbie. Your big smiles every moment I met you. You always had a pleasant compliment. You were always supportive of any thing I approached you to help with. Debbie you had a gift for my son for every birthday. You took care of all the kids like they were yours. Oh what an impact you made on the lives of these godly seeds. I know you are resting, smiling as ever and enjoying to bosom of our Father. I look forward to that big warm smile of yours on the resurrection morning.
