Debra L. Pieczynski

Debbie was a loving and passionate person with a bit of a stubborn streak, which she undoubtedly got from her father. She was a great sister and an even better mother. No matter what she was going through, her boys always came first. She helped them see how important education was and attended every one of their hockey games she could. She was mother not only to her boys but also to her Beagles, which she treated like her own children.

Deb worked at ECMC as a medical billing specialist, which she greatly enjoyed. She loved to travel and go camping. She and Thomas rented cabins and went on cruises to explore new places together. She enjoyed lazy days of floating in the pool and loved spending time with her friends. Deb was good to her friends and dedicated so much of herself to maintaining those close friendships.

Debra never let her breast cancer stop her from doing the things she loved. She was a warrior to say the least.
