Deborah Ann Addison (born Deborah Ann Loccia) was always a force to be reckoned with: fiercely intelligent, defiantly independent, inspirationally (and frustratingly) challenging, Debbie had an effect on everyone who met her. Despite the length of time that had passed or the briefness of the relationships she held with hundreds, she maintained a connection with every person she loved and cared for. From the old high school friends of her children to her own high school friends… From the coworkers of her husband to the caregivers of her neighbors… From God to her grandchildren, Debbie assured her world of friends and family that they were never forgotten, lost, or not loved.
With the loss of Debbie’s mother and father, Natalino and Mary Loccia, she battled with what many folks battle with when losing loved ones: depression, a sense of loss, and a debilitating loss of health.
At the age of 62, shortly after battling everything from heart issues to breast cancer, Debbie was taken into God’s care so she could offer her services to those in heaven.
Her husband, Kevin, was her rock—and through her many struggles, maintained her comfort and sense of identity while her body slowly debilitated, all the while supporting her emotionally, financially, and physically.
During this time, we are doing our best to assure that her arrangements as she descends into the afterlife are what she deserves. Given the financial constraints being undertaken by her husband and family—this includes everything from cremation services and funeral plans to flowers and travel arrangements for her immediate family—we are depending on those who knew and loved her best to contribute what they can.
Any and all donations, handled by her sons and husband, are not only appreciated but essential in assuring that her passing is done with respect and love.
