August 2, 1958 – July 30, 2011
Deb Urquhart passed away peacefully on the arm of her devoted husband and best friend Rob on Saturday, July 30, 2011 at the Foothills Medical Centre.
Deb will be missed by her beautiful children, Tanya Hartz, Angela Perry (Mike), Quinn, Brett, and Chelsea Urquhart; and the shining light of her life, grandson Cameron Hartz.
Deb was born and raised in Allan, SK, daughter of Otto and Eva Senger; sister to Fay Hoiness (Brian), Eileen Germann and Laurie Bitz (Lorne). She was known as crazy Auntie Deby to numerous nieces and nephews. Deb will be remembered as a caring, passionate and unselfish lady who was always first to help out and loved her family above all else. Even after her diagnosis she remained focused on how she could help everyone else cope with her illness. She never lost her fantastic sense of humour and has taught us all lessons in courage, spirit and love.
