Mar 13, 1958 – Apr 25, 2012
Debbie-Lynn (Debbie) Kimberly May Johnston was born in Winnipeg Manitoba on March 13, 1958, raised in Vancouver BC, and lived in Chetwynd BC for a short time before moving and making her home close to her children in Clearwater BC. She passed away suddenly, in her home, on April 25, 2012. She was just 54 years of age. Mourning Debbie’s passing are her children, Tammy Johnston(Quentin), Adam Johnston, and Sheldon Johnston; grandchildren, Cody, Derrick, and Tadam of Clearwater BC, Joel, CJ, and Samantha; her sister Ena Jones of Edmonton Alberta, numerous nephews and a niece, cousins, and other relatives. Debbie was predeceased by her father Stewart Johnston, mother Martha Johnston, brother Stewart Johnston (Jr), sister Joyce Axelson, aunt Helen, grandson Jarid, and by her best friend Tracey Jones.
Debbie was an avid cat lover; she always had many cats to make her house a home. Although Debbie loved all her cats with all her heart, she always loved to dog sit for Tammy. Debbie loved all animals; it was not unusual for her to take care and nurse an animal back to health like she did for a broken crow. The hummingbird, angels & fairies have always had special meaning to Debbie and her children; they will always know that when they think of these things she will be close by. Debbie loved to spend time with her children and grandchildren. She loved to read any and every kind of book, and she loved to bake up a storm.
Funeral services for Debbie-Lynn will take place Tuesday May 8 2012. There will be a viewing from 12:00 until 12:30 p.m., and the funeral service will begin at 1:00 p.m., at the Clearwater Community Baptist church. A graveside will follow immediately at Riverview Cemetery, Clearwater BC. Everyone is welcome to gather at the Elks Hall afterwards to share memories of Debbie; light refreshments will be served.Print This Obituary & Condolences
