Debbie Koehler's Memorial Fund

All of those who knew Debbie Koehler are shocked, heartbroken and forever saddened by her sudden passing.   The depth and breadth of her caring of others is reflected in the beautiful poignant words of those who face life without her unique and generous spirit.  She was one of the kindest, most humorous, generous, thoughtful, wacky, quirky, authentic, creative, energetic, conscientious people who graced this earth.   All those who were blessed to have her in their lives know the void they will feel by her absence.  Eric Alperin, Debbie's husband, her mother Yoko,  and her siblings, Nancy, Linda (me) and Michael Koehler are asking for contributions to fund a "Celebration of Life" service that will be as memorable as she was.  We will be holding her memorial event on October 14th from 1:30 to 4:30 at the Strawberry Seminary in Mill Valley.  Please let Linda know if you are planning on attending, you can send a message through this site. Funds will also be withdrawn by her husband to be used to assist him with the cost of final services.  Additional remaining funds will be sent to charities that moved her very large heart which will include those that benefit animals everywhere such as the ASPCA, SPCA, Best Friends Animal Society and the World Wildlife Fund.  Thank you all so much for so generously remembering Debbie.
