Debra Gay Cook


COOK, Debra Gay, age 67, of Lebanon passed away on March 30, 2022.

Debra was simply an amazing woman. She wasn’t just a mom to her children, she was everyone’s “mom”. The beach was one of her favorite places, her heart was as big as the ocean. She was a lover of life and especially loved her grandkids. Hobbies she enjoyed were traveling, gambling, and gardening. She was one of a kind and her love was contagious. She will be dearly missed by many, and her memories will continue to make people smile.
