Memories Timeline


  1. candle 8So sorry to hear of Debi’s passing. Could someone share details with me please? We were trying to let her know Cousin FrankBuesing had died. We plan to attend zoom funeral but would like to talk to Bill. Suzanne Levy.

  2. candle 1My Dear Debi, rest in peace my dear cousin. i am so glad we spent time together last FEBRUARY. You will be missed. Love, Mary Buesing Martens

  3. candle 8Debi was a true friend for so many years.
    She loved her job, she adored her fur babies.
    She had such a passion for what she did in the Food Service Equipment Industry.
    I miss our conversations and lunches.
    She will forever be in my heart. I loved her like a sister.

    Godspeed Debi!

  4. candle 8Something so unfair about Debi’s passing! She was my sister-from-another-mister. My Dad loved working with her over the decades, first at KIA and then Duray. I will miss our not-often-enough lunches, and of course that wonderful smile. Rest well Debi!

  5. candle 7Debi was a true go-getter and a friend. She had the utmost dedication to Duray and the foodservice industry. She knew the tricks of the trade to land a job and get the job done by any means.
    She was also very compassionate about her kitties and extremely passionate about the NFL. She could go into depth and predict which team would achieve a win on each game before Sunday.
    She will be missed but not forgotten.
    Travel well Debi.

  6. candle 7Debi was one of my dearest friends. She was like a mother or big sister. We first bonded over us both being from Michigan. She became a true friend and mentor and I learned so much about life from her. We spent many a nights at Outlaws after the restaurant closed talking and laughing. It was very hard not to wish her a happy birthday this year for the first time in over 20 years and even harder when I didn’t hear from her on my birthday a few weeks ago. I will miss her frank talks…her love of all cats…her spunk…her drive…and her beautiful smile. She was one of a kind and I will always miss her. I know she is in heaven surrounded by her loved ones and her cats! Farewell my beautiful friend. ❤️❤️

  7. The perfect picture with that great smile that I remember over the years calling on Debi, a true business professional and a friend.
    Rest in Peace Debi
    Ted Kolstad

  8. candle 1I will miss Debi. She kept me on my toes and had a great sense of humor. I remember her at KIA but saw her for many years at Duray. She really was an icon in the industry by my reckoning, she got things done.
    I will never forget her and I believe she will never be forgotten by her family or industry family.
    Rest In Peace Debi

  9. candle 4It took my breath away to hear of your passing since we had just reconnected. Too many years had passed but talking to you was as time stood still. God must of needed another Angel. I only wish we could of connected sooner my old friend.

  10. candle 1Debi,

    For soo many years you were a customer but over those years, you became a dear friend. I enjoyed our conversations in your office and that darn jar of chocolates! You will be missed…. May you rest in peace. ❤️

  11. candle 4Debi,

    Thank you for many years of friendship and laughter. I will miss your warm-hearted, thoughtful, but strong minded approach to life. I will fondly remember my many visits to your office and your smiling reception.

    God speed

  12. candle 1Debi,

    I did not know you as long as most people but I really enjoyed working with you, you truly are missed here in the office and are not forgotten by any means. Rest in peace Debi and enjoy all your many kitties that I’m sure were waiting to greet their “mama” once again!

  13. candle 8Dear Bill,
    Debi was such a sweet dear person. I’m so glad you were there to be by her side and help her walk through life’s toughest journey.

    I will be watching you this Saturday on the zoom. My prayers of comfort and peace are being sent to you.

  14. candle 8Debi, I am so sorry to learn of your passing. I’m sorry I waited so long to check in with you these last few months. We were always in touch most of our lives and I can still hear your voice and laugh. One of my fondest memories is going to your surprise birthday breakfast that your mom planned for you in Tucson. Rest in peace my friend. De Colores.

  15. candle 7Debi: You were a great neighbor living just across the street. I remember when I was laid off my job, you asked if I could come to your house and help take care of your mother until I found another job. I went over for a weeks and then I found new job. You were a great neighbor and Mike and I will greatly miss you. Bill was so great to you and glad you were not alone. Enjoy your life in heaven!

  16. candle 1Debi,
    I will miss you greatly. I lived next door to Debbie and her kitties aka Catwater and always enjoyed spending time just hanging out.

    When I moved we still hung out. She made sure I took a fur baby with me to keep me company and I worked with her on Friday nights at Outlaws.

    We went through many changes in our lives and sometimes we would not see each other as much, but when we did we just picked up where we left off.

    I will always remember her laugh, kindness, generosity, and friendship.

    ❤️ Tanya

  17. candle 4Deb, you will be missed greatly. I always enjoyed our time together especially the lunches and laughter. Rest In Peace

  18. candle 1I just now learned of Debi’s passing. I think we spoke last not too long before. She was my brother Paul’s “Girl Friday” at the KIA and elsewhere. What a doll… RIP, Debi, and thanks for being such a great friend to my brother and me. xoxoxo
