It's now July 2021 and I'm still mourning the unintended loss of our friendship. Because we lost contact, I only learned of your illness and death after the fact. I never stopped hoping and praying that you were okay. You were among my first students; I was your teacher. Soon, you were my babysitter and I was a friend and mentor. We shared many fun times and I like to think I helped you trust and like yourself!! How sorry I am that I never knew you were ill. And that I only met your boys when they were little! My thoughts are with you, your brothers, and your kids. I wish I knew how to reach out to them and to your godson, who I see lives in Bethpage, where I raised my family - with you babysitting! I think of you often and never stopped trying to stay in touch. Love... Madey

My condolences to you Chip and James, and to Deb's extended family and friends. While I didn't know Deb well, our families were intertwined, as she was my dear sister-in-law Penny's bestie. Over the years I got to spend time with your mom. I know her as smart, dedicated, and fiercely protective of those she held dear. I loved her humor and appreciated her determination, particularly in her later years as she forged new beginnings, and at the end, faced grave challenges. I hope your grief will be punctuated with sweet memories of your mom that will eventually be the picture that remains in your heart. Sent with our love, Gloria & Gary
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Deborah King was the person who hired me along with Mr. Planz. What I remember about her was how comfortable she made me feel when I was getting interviewed. A few years later I was going to be excessed and it was Mrs. King who came running out of her office when she heard me getting upset to tell me that I still had my benefits until the end of the year. She spoke with me a few minutes and calmed me down. I will never forget that as Assistant Superintendent, how she cared enough to come out of her office to speak with me as I did not know she was even in her office. I will keep her in my prayers and pray that she finds peace with God and that you and your family find peace knowing that she is safe.

Deb was an independent spirit. One of my first memories of her was that she rode her own Harley Davidson Motorcycle, at a time when it was rare for a woman to ride alone. Deb was a fair minded Administrator, who treated all of the staff equally, She was a pleasure to know and work for, she was a true friend.
Laura Neville left a message on January 20, 2019:
Deb was my principal at Dinkelmeyer.She was a compassionate, smart, funny, honest person. Not only was she a supportive administrator, but she also reached out to me during a challenging time of my life. She will be missed. May she be at peace now.
