Debra Lee Fawcus

March 7, 1959-July 14, 2016 Age 57

Deb was taken too soon, by an on-going illness, early Thursday morning July 14, 2016. She will be missed by all that knew her. Deb was born at Grace Hospital in Vancouver, BC on March 7, 1959. Deb grew up in Vancouver, Alberta, and eventually moved to Duncan BC. At the age of 15 she met her soon-to-be husband Eric Fawcus. They were married on April 21, 1979 and had two wonderful children, Rick (1982) and Erin (1984). Deb had a passion for family. She loved big holidays and always looked forward to any get-togethers with family and friends. She welcomed you into her home without a second thought and was always there for anyone who needed it. She was a farm girl at heart and loved all animals especially her horses. Deb was skilled at cake decorating and she was known for her elaborate wedding and birthday cakes. Deb had a dream to become an Architect and she fulfilled that dream when she drew up plans to a house. She even saw the house become a home to another family. Deb is survived by her parents Harvey and Dorothy Osborne, husband Eric Fawcus of 37 years, son Rick Fawcus (Amber), daughter Erin Horne (Rob), Grandchildren Kaelen Horne, Lana Horne, and Jax Fawcus, sister Donna Osborne (Don), nephews Ryan and Matt Hunt (Crystal), niece Karleigh Malner, nephew Jonathan Malner and many more aunts, uncles, and cousins in BC and Alberta. We love you, we miss you, and you will always be in our hearts. “Remember the best times, the laughter, the song. The good life I lived when I was strong. Continue my heritage, I’m counting on you. Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through” There will be a tea held for family and friends on Sunday, July 24 2016 from 11am-3pm at 6001 St. Ann’s Drive, Duncan BC.
