Deborah Jane Meier passed away peacefully in the comfort of her own home on Saturday, March 26th, 2016 after a battle with cancer. She was born in New Westminster, BC, later moved to Merritt, BC, and she retired in the Cariboo to the beautiful timber home she and her husband Doug built in Lone Butte BC.
Deborah was predeceased by her parents and is survived by her loving husband Doug, her three sons; Joel (Delane), Travis (Sandy) and Ryan (Karla), her stepchildren; Crystelle (John), Lelayneya, and Chad (Ashley), her sisters; Donna, Sherry (Glen) and Sandy as well as her many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and many friends.
Deborah loved to dance! She taught dancing lessons and enjoyed every moment of it. Later in life she became a care aide because helping people came naturally to her. Deborah was a welcoming, kind and generous person who always put others before herself. Her other passions in life included horseback riding, fishing and gardening. Deborah was a lover of all animals and above all had a great love for her family. She cherished everyone who came into her life and she will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
A Gathering of Love will be held for Deborah at 1:00pm, April 23rd in Merritt, BC at the
Cadet Hall (1755 Coldwater Avenue) with a reception to follow.
In Lieu of flowers please spend some time reminiscing on happy memories of Deborah.
