Debbie leaves to cherish her memories, her devoted husband of 47 years, Aaron Dermid, her furry companion, Shadow both of the home. One daughter Shannon Dermid and her fiance Gerrod Hardy of Winston-Salem, N.C. Two grandchildren, Mariah (Michael) Hollis and Trenton Rayner, three great grandchildren, Benson Hollis, Michael Hollis Jr, and Kawhi Hollis, all of Lewisville, North Carolina. One brother Danny (Sherri) Douglas, of Hazard, Kentucky, a sister-in-law Charlotte Douglas of Apopka, Florida, two nieces Diana (Johnny) Kennedy of Apopka, Florida, Sarah (Daniel) Martin of Mount Dora, Florida, three close cousins Faye, Barbara and Chuck and a host of relatives of Plant City, Florida. One special family that she held close to her heart, Mike and Terra Parker of Ararat, North Carolina.
Debbie was a very hard worker and a retired employee of Staples in Mt. Airy where she worked for 10 years. Prior to her declining health, she worked part time for Homeplace in Ararat, North Carolina where she gained more family and friends.
Debbie enjoyed camping and traveling the country in her Grand Design 5th Wheel RV for the last six years. She made long lasting friendships along her traveling journey which she spoke about all the time with great love. Although she enjoyed trying new restaurants, her true talents were cooking and baking for others to enjoy. Everyone always spoke highly of her key lime pies and key lime cakes. Although banana pudding was her least favorite, it was the most requested dessert by her RV friends and family. That just goes to show how great she was at her craft.
The family wishes to express their heartfelt appreciation for the loving care she received from the 8th and 9th floors of Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center. A special thank you to Nicole Redd and all of the Nurses and CNAs who provided her with special and supportive care during her stay. We also appreciate Dr. Karin Giordano and staff at the Cancer Institute of Mt. Airy.
Carolina Cremation Center is respectfully serving the family.
