Deborah Betty Jean Thachuk of Parkhill passed away peacefully listening to the loving words of her family messages played next to her on Tuesday, May 11, 2021, at the age of 62.
Debbie married the love of her life and enjoyed 45 years doting on her husband John Thachuk Sr., working side by side in their younger years and simply being together sipping coffee in their retirement.
Debbie leaves a legacy in her family of John Jr. & Nicole, Trish & Graham Holloway, Bobby and her grandchildren Caedan, Delany, and Charlotte Holloway.
The fifth oldest in the family, Debbie is predeceased by her loving parents Betty Dunseith & Clayton Casselman, parents-in-law Jack & Doris Thachuk, and is remembered by her many siblings and extended family. Thanks for adding all you did to her life.
The Thachuk family are so thankful for their special family friends; Steve & Jeanette Majors and Marilyn Hodgins who have always been such a support to Debbie and their entire family.
Debbie loved her animals including her German Shepherd, Zoe, and beagle, Buddy, along with her many stray cats fed daily including Rolly, Baby, Bella, and Dicky. Debbie's favourite pas-time included bossing her husband around and hosting family events where all preparations were completed by Debbie, and the only requirement was to "come as you are".
Grandchildren and family were always priority for Debbie, a woman who could only be described as a woman with a Heart of Gold.
Debbie's family would like to thank the Dr's and nurses at Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital who cared for Debbie during the past few days. Donations in Debbie's name are appreciated to the Children's Health Foundation Oncology Department London, Health Science Centre.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Arrangements are entrusted to Gilpin Funeral Chapel, 123 King Street East in Forest. Please leave a memory or condolence online at www.GilpinFuneralChapel.com
