Debbie Kae Summitt Debbie was born and raised in Redondo Beach and lived in various locations within California. The last 15 years she resided in the Hemet-San Jacinto area. Debbie had two children, Berta De La Cruz and Jamie Millbank and two grandchildren, Gabriella and Sofia De La Cruz. Sewing and collecting antique tea pots were some of Debbie's hobbies, but spending time with her two granddaughters and all those that she loved was her favorite pastime. Debbie was an individual that loved and cared with everything she had and everything that she could give. We remember with fond joy and deep love of all the memories of Debbie. We only wish there were more tomorrow's to spend with her. Memorial Service Tuesday, October 2, 2007 at 1:00 P.M. at Rice Chapel, Torrance, CA.
