It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Debbie Ann Procter after a long and courageous battle with C.O.P.D. At the time of her passing Debbie was in the hospital awaiting a lung transplant. Debbie’s journey through life started on March 5, 1960 in Roseau, Minnesota, USA and came to a close at the Peter Lougheed Hospital in Calgary on October 3, 2019. Debbie was predeceased by a daughter, Chantel Lynn Procter in infancy, as well as her mother Corinne Palamer and her father Ed Thompson. She leaves to cherish her memory her daughter Kaylee Monique Procter, brothers; Gordon (Patty) Thompson, Donny (Christine) Thompson, one sister Marilyn Kinsella, as well as numerous nieces and nephews all of whom she cherished. Throughout her journey Debbie enjoyed many occupations, working in several restaurant and night clubs as well as many years for the Bank of Montreal in Calgary where she received countless awards for “Employee of The Month.” Her final place of employment was Walmart in Medicine Hat where she was treated with respect and compassion. They would adjust her work schedule to accommodate her ability to work and give her any time off she needed when her illness would not afford her the strength to work. The family would like to recognize and thank Walmart for their compassion and understanding. She made many new friends at every stop. Her happiest moment and biggest accomplishment came when she saw her daughter Kaylee, whom she loved only as a mother could, graduate from the University of Toronto with a Masters Degree and a perfect 4.0 G.P.A. It was at this moment that Debbie found peace and was truly prepared for what lie ahead. Debbie also leaves behind her two constant companions and best friends, Pixie and Bella, the puppies she loved and treated as children. As per Debbie’s wishes there will be no formal funeral service and cremation has taken place. A celebration of Debbie’s life will be held at Whiskey Creek, Creekside Reception room on Saturday October 12, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. To honour Debbie please dress casual. In lieu of flowers, the family would ask that donations in Debbie’s memory be made to APARC - Alberta Pound and Rescue Centre or to the Alberta Lung Association.
