Its with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Deborah (Debbie) Lynn Parker, age 68, of Westville, passed away April 3, 2024 surrounded by the love of her family. Debbie left her friends and family to join her loving mother Bernice, brother, Kelvin, father, Albert, stepmother, Kay and a nephew, Jonathan after a lengthy battle with COPD and cardiac issues due to her connective tissue disorder. Debbie was a loving spouse, mother, nana, sister, cousin, niece, and friend. She was caring, compassionate, supportive, generous, fun, and will be missed horribly by those of us left behind. Debbie is survived by her children: Carrie (Scott) MacDonald; Dale Fleming; her loving spouse Carl Spears, his children Christa (Eddie), and Joseph and their families; sister, Faith (Bruce) Parker and brother, Hazen (Nicole) Parker; along with many cousins. A special Aunt, Marie (Allan) Parker and long-time loyal friend, Catherine (John) Macleod. Her five grandchildren were the light of her life, Breanna, Hailey, Emily, Brody, and Peyton. Debbie graduated from Prince Andrew High School in Dartmouth, NS then continued her education taking the Certified Nursing Assistant program at the Dartmouth Community College. Upon moving to Pictou County, she worked at the Aberdeen Hospital in New Glasgow, then ended her professional career after many years at the Sutherland Harris Memorial Hospital in Pictou. She was a member of Christ Church in Stellarton; she loved to sing in the choir and participate as a member of the ACW. She loved to craft and tried her hand at many, including knitting, crocheting, sewing, ceramic dolls, cloth dolls, ornaments, stain glass, and scrapbooking. She loved to travel around the world, especially to warm places where she could lay on the beach and listen to the ocean. Most of all, she loved spending time and playing games with her grandchildren, she was the best Nana doing anything and everything to put a smile on those faces, whether that was playing cards, washer toss, scoring dance competitions, or snuggling up with a book to read or singing to them. Debbie also loved animals and fostered a number of dogs until they found their forever home. She will be missed by her canine companion, Jack who she loved dearly. Visitation will take place on Sunday April 7, 2024, 2pm-5pm at Howard Angus Funeral Home. A private family committal will take place at a later date.
