<div itemprop="description">Beloved wife, mother and friend Deborah Marie Zimmel passed away suddenly September 26th, 2015 at the young age of 57. <br /><br /> Deborah&rsquo;s loving heart will be remembered by her husband David, her lovely daughters Genna and Lyndsay, her extended family, especially her brother-in-law Terry Zimmel and many dear friends. <br /><br /> She was born in New Waterford, Nova Scotia on July 31st, 1958 the second oldest of nine children to Malcolm and Marie McNeil. On graduation she moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba then Edmonton, Alberta working in advertising. There she met her husband David and on February 23rd, 1985 they were married. They celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary this year. On April 20th, 1988 they were blessed with the birth of their first daughter Genna Barbara and almost three years later, on April 11th, 1991 their second daughter Lyndsay Marie was born. To Deborah her daughters became her life. She loved them so much. She loved being a mom. David and Deborah raised their daughters in Edmonton and in 2006 moved to Springbank, Calgary. <br /><br /> Deborah cherished her husband, daughters and the many communities she was so much a part of.
