Deborah A. Massey passed on March 30 in the comfort of her home surrounded by family. Deborah, born and raised a farm girl, moved on to nursing after graduating from Seaford High School. It wasn’t long until raising her family became full time which allowed her to babysit for many other family members. One of Deborah’s greatest joys was becoming a grandmother many times over. She was able to attend and participate in many of her grandbabies events. Whether it was field day, camping in the distant mountains, or a BBQ and bonfire at home, as long as there was a cold crisp Pepsi, she cherished every moment. 

Deborah was preceded in death by her parents Bill and Jean Ockels, her brother Billy and sister Joyce. She is survived by a sister Grace; brothers Jimmy and Donnie; her children Brian, Scott and Jen and Marie; all of her many grandchildren as well as nieces and nephews. 

Services were held at Cranston Funeral Home in Seaford on April 6. Burial was  in Blades Cemetery.
