MUISE, Deborah ‘Debby’ Lee Yarmouth Deborah ‘Debby’ Lee Muise, age 67 of Yarmouth Nova Scotia Passed away on October 23rd surrounded by her loving family. Although life threw Debby some curveballs, the death of her husband at age 63 and her cancer diagnosis at age 57 she always managed to meet those challenges. Debby will always be remembered for her fighting spirit as she set an example of courage that inspired everyone who knew her. For the past two years as a Palliative Care patient, she looked death in the face, kicked him to the curb and said, “not now buddy”. How do you measure the life of someone who quietly un-assumably does acts of kindness, like picking berries for elderly shut-ins; knitting hats for premature babies at the IWK and knitting mittens for needy elementary school children. Small acts of kindness: that is how she made this world a better place. For our family, giving the gift of life by donating a kidney to her younger sister was the greatest kindness of all. Debby felt no need to be the centre of attention. Instead, she liked to come into any room and blend in, sitting back to observe and quietly participate in whatever was happening. Debby cherished special moments. One such special moment was on the occasion of her last birthday when her daughter, who is the Athletic Therapist for the Yarmouth Junior A Mariners Hockey Team, showed up at her birthday party with the full team roster in tow. They brought flowers, planted kisses and sang Happy Birthday. Debby loved her children, grandchildren and her dog Benji beyond measure. Was she a good person? Absolutely. Will we miss her? Without a doubt. Debby was pre- deceased by her husband, David Muise; and her parents, Captain Ernest Wilson and his wife Mary (Myrtle) Wilson. She is survived by her six siblings, Penny LaRocque (Guy), Halifax, Mike Wilson, B.C., Ginger Driscoll (Robert), Yarmouth, George Wilson (Sherisse), Yarmouth, Sam Wilson (Dana Watkins), Yarmouth, Angela Wilson, Halifax; her three children, Kenneth (Skippy) Churchill, Yarmouth, Amanda Wells (Dave), Yarmouth, Tessa Morehouse (Shane), Yarmouth, and five grandchildren, David Muise (Lauren) New Brunswick, Megan Wells, Yarmouth, Connor Wells, Yarmouth, Colin Morehouse, Yarmouth, Hayden Morehouse, Yarmouth; and great-grandchild Kinsley Muise, New Brunswick. Visitation will be held at Huskilson's Funeral Home, on Monday October 28 between 6 and 8 p.m. The funeral service will be held in St. Ambrose Cathedral October 29 at 3p.m. Burial will take place in Our Lady of Lourdes Cemetery, Melbourne.
