With great sadness, we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother and grandmother, Debra Hagen. She lost her life too soon to Cancer at the age of 67.
Debbie married her loving and devoted husband, Jerry Hagen, 14 years ago, and their time together was much too short. She leaves behind her mother and father, Emily and Andy Friess and her sons Robert(Susan) and Craig(Angel) Jones. Debbie has two granddaughters who will miss her so much. She always said they were the gift she got for raising two sons. She also leaves behind a brother Barry(Sandra), and a sister Carrie(Bob). There are endless other family members, too many to list, that will miss her greatly. As she was known by so many, Grandma Debbie will also be missed by countless close family friends.
Debbie retired eight years ago from her administrative assistant position at NRGH and, upon doing so, made her dream come true of owning a horse. She spent most mornings feeding her horse and enjoying all the duties that came with owning a horse. In addition, spending time with loved ones, whether playing cards, going for walks or on trail rides, were some of her favourite ways to spend her days.
Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts.
You will be so greatly missed.
The family gratefully declines flowers, if you prefer, please consider donating to the BC cancer foundation or a charity of your choice in lieu of flowers.
