Debbie & I were co-workers at the Toronto CAS. in the early 70's. Debbie was a compassionate & dedicated Social Worker. From there, we became good friends & enjoyed many fun gatherings, back & forth in each other's homes, especially when our respective children were quite young. Eventually work separated us geographically but we still managed to keep in touch. I always looked forward to Debbie's Christmas News Letter so artfully done. She was very talented artistically
Debbie moved on to other Social Work positions but eventually chose Teaching in the mid-80's , involving going back to University for her Teaching Degree.
Debbie faced her health challenges with great strength. Her warmth & friendship will be greatly missed.
Win & I send our deepest condolences to Michel & daughters Alyssa & Rachel..

Thank you Michel for allowing us to share what would be our last great memories of Debbie while at Maple Leaf Golf & CC in September of 2017. We had a wonderful time eating great food, playing tennis and meeting your many friends during happy hours in the park. Debbie looked forward to her early morning swims...we could tell she was in her happy place. God Bless.

Monsieur, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I have fond memories of Mrs. Lecavalier at Canadian Martyrs where she was such an inspiration to me and my fellow students. I wish you and your family the best through this difficult time.
