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.
