Deborah Deb Joan Jones (Williams)

July 17, 1959 - July 18, 2014


Deborah Joan Jones (nee Williams)
July 17 1959 – July 18 2014
Deborah (“Deb”) was born on July 17, 1959, in Olds Alberta. She was the 4th of 6 children born to Eric and Joan Williams. Months after she was born, Deb and her family moved to Nakusp.
In 1973, after many years spent with good friend Denise Jones (Marchischuk), Deb began dating Denise's brother, Warren Jones. On April 29, 1983, Warren and Deb were married in Nanaimo. On November 21, 1983, Warren and Deb celebrated the birth of their first child, Haley Morgan. Four short years later, Mason Russell was born, to complete the family.
Deb graduated from the Nakusp Secondary School in 1977. After graduating high school, Deb moved to Calgary to attend University and work teaching figure skating. After University, Deb returned to Nakusp and worked for CIBC, until starting her career. On October 27, 1990, Deb was hired with the Nakusp School District where she worked ever since. 
Deb's passions included her family, the children she worked with, and figure skating. She was an amazing cook and had many talents. Deb took great pride in helping the less fortunate in the most inconspicuous ways. She would go above and beyond for anyone in need. Deb had a very comical side and loved to share jokes, mostly at the expense of her husband Warren. 
Deb's husband Warren, her children Haley and Mason, and the school children she worked with, were the lights of her life. Deb shared an individual bond with each child she worked with and she loved them all dearly. 
Deb leaves behind her husband Warren, daughter Haley (David), son Mason (Dawn), her parents Eric and Joan Williams, sister Rose (Jack) Taylor, Gary Posnick, sister Colleen (Terry) Warren, sister Laura (David) Demitor, Daro Yoshida, sister Kathleen (David) Nixon, brother-in-law Darcy (Carrie) Jones, sister-in-law and good friend Denise (Kim) Marchischuk, nieces and nephews, Shannon, Doug, Karen, Lisa, Leanne, Jerod, Brayden, Damyn, Kim, Jen, Deanne, Matt, Nicole, Abby, Saedy, Logan, and great nieces and nephews. 
Deb is predeceased by her brother Glen Williams, inlaws Roy and Dorothy Jones, brother-in-law Russell Jones, and her niece Teanne Jones. 
Deb was loved by many and will forever be missed.

“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit”.
 Psalm 34:18
“They that love beyond the world cannot be separated by it. Death cannot kill what never dies.”
– William Penn
