Gardening 11


Debra M Dann

December 31, 1969 ~ September 30, 2018 (age 48)

Debra Marie Dann, of Hull, born on November 17, 1954 in Hingham, to the late Mary C. Dann and the late Lester Woodbury Dann, passed away on September 30, 2018, in Hull at the age of 63.

She graduated from Hingham High School in 1972 and worked for many years in the hardware industry after graduation. Debra was the loving partner of Richard Burke. She was preceded in death by her sister, Claire M. McLaughlin. Debra is survived by her brothers, Edward Dann Sr., and Earl Dann as well as 8 nieces and nephews and 10 great nieces and nephews who dearly loved their "Aunt Debi".

Debi loved animals. In her younger years she would go horseback riding as often as she could. She was an avid board game player and loved playing scrabble with her friends. Debi was happiest when she was with her family and when she was gardening. 

Debi loved family, friends, but most of all, God.  She talked the talk and walked the walk as they say and was a long time  member of the North River Church women’s prayer group where she made many loving friends all united in  the same beliefs.  Additionally she assisted her sister Claire with the children of South Shore Baptist Church where she attended for several years along with family. The strength of those beliefs is what kept Debi moving forward with the love and compassion she showed to all who knew her.  Her smile was a beacon of the love she shared and was returned to her ten-fold.

There are some that bring light so great to the world that even after they have gone, the light remains. This is our Debi.

The graveside service will be private.
