Debra was born in Toronto on December 22, 1958. Beloved wife of Peter for 36 years, dear mother of Steven and sister to Chris (Dawn) and Bob (Dana), sister-in-law to Jennifer (Frank), aunt to Adam, Andrea (Donny), Chris (Maggie), Lisa (Lucas), Laura (Josh), Heather (Byron), and Stephanie (Mike). She was the daughter of the late Rose and Pando Markoff. Debra was a graduate of Martingrove Collegiate and of the Humber College Early Childhood Education Program and had worked for a number of years in the Metropolitan Toronto Day Care Centres. Like many children of Macedonian heritage she grew up in the restaurant business. In more recent years, her support and patience for Steven and Peter’s professional and other pursuits was outstanding. Arrangements entrusted to Turner & Porter "Peel" Chapel, Mississauga and due to the current COVID 19 restrictions a small private family service will be held. A Celebration of Life will occur at a future date. The family thanks the Intensive Care Unit staff at Credit Valley Hospital for their hard efforts on Debra’s behalf and for the ongoing support of the Watline Dialysis Satellite Clinic. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Kidney Foundation of Canada in Debra’s name may be made.
