Barney, Debra J., (nee Dirkin), of Wenonah, 52 years, on May 19, 2012.

Legacy

Deb embodied the essence of life. A compassionate, intelligent, and endearing person, she enlightened the lives who touched her. Enriched with generosity and a caring heart, Deb was always present for those in need of a helping hand, a pleasant conversation, or a warm smile. A devoted mother, she encouraged her children in their every endeavor routinely traveling nationally supporting them in competition cheerleading and motor-cross events.

Deb's kindness, laughter, and zest for life will be truly missed by all.
