Obituary for Debby Ann Richardson

Debby Ann Richardson (Horwat)
June 20, 1955 – January 8, 2020

It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing of Debby after her courageous battle with cancer. Her love of life, strength and fight will never be forgotten.
Mom will forever be remembered for numerous things…her green thumb, anyone who knew her knew her flower gardens were her pride and joy. Her love of Wallace Lake and fishing with Dad (Martyn), as well as her amazing tan that she acquired every year on her “trips home” with Dad to Mazatlan. Mom will also be remembered to being an amazing nurse, that was shown through her dedication to the children’s and families lives she touched over the course of her 40 years at Children’s Hospital. Even though Mom was a private person who chose to let others shine, her bright light will forever and always remain bright in our hearts as well an anyone who knew her.
Mom will always be cherished and missed by her beloved husband Martyn, daughter Lisa, grand daughters Kaelyn and Taryn, father Joseph, sister Valerie (Ken) as well as many other extended family and friends.
The family would like to extend a very special thank you to Anita, Maggie and all the other amazing palliative care staff at St Boniface Hospital.
At Mom’s request no formal services will be held. A celebration of life will take place for close family and friends at a later date.
“I’ll like you forever…I’ll love you for always….as long as I’m living my Mama you’ll be…”
