It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of my daughter Deborah Jean Cooney (Debby), on Saturday, December 4, 2021. Debby is survived by her mother Madelane Riley, siblings Garry (June), Ross, Gale, and many nieces, nephews who adored their aunt Debby. Predeceased by her father Larry Cooney and brother Mark.
Debby will be remembered by her strength of character, good humour, her love of life, her love of family. Debby was employed by Bristol Myers Squip as marketing manager for 26 years. She has received many awards for outstanding work and her artistic qualities. After she retired, she was hired by as a special consultant for certain firms in the West Island. Debby loved to play golf and horseback riding, went away each year with her mother to different destinations. Debby was a bon vivant. Unfortunately, 6 years ago she was wheelchair-bound; it was discovered three months ago that she had cancer. As per Debby’s wishes, her funeral will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her memory to the Canadian Cancer Society Research.
Funeral arrangements entrusted to Voluntas (514-695-7979, voluntas.ca).

Je suis vraiment désolée pour la grande perte que vous vivez présentement. La mort est notre pire ennemi. Heureusement, il y a un bel espoir pour l’avenir. Voici ce que j’ai lu dans un livre rempli de sagesse, dont le message apporte réconfort et espoir à des gens de tous les milieux culturels.
“Et il essuiera toute larme de leurs yeux, et la mort n’existera plus ; il n’y aura plus ni deuil, ni cri, ni douleur. Les choses anciennes ont disparu”. Bon courage!
