Debra Jean Lewin


Debra Jean Lewin (Debi, Deb), age 64, passed on peacefully Thursday, August 15,2019 at her home in Sun City, Arizona surrounded by the love of her family after her 19yr battle with breast cancer. She was born in Presque Isle General Hospital in Presque Isle, Maine to William Ernest and Esther Jeanette Lewin Sr. She attended Carl Hayden High School and later pursued her goals of attending the United States Army, where she worked in logistics and was awarded the National Defense Service Medal. She was a Lieutenant at DCASR in Los Angeles, Ca where she achieved the honor and recognition of being the first female security police officer supervisor. Some of her other careers involved working for the VA and Tri Care.

She was a member of Vineyard North Phoenix Church of Glendale. She was baptized on July 28th, 2019

Debi was an adventurous, bold yet kindhearted soul. A woman who knew exactly what she wanted and made no apologies for being her amazing self. She was and always will be remembered as a beautiful Warrior who was always peachy even while enduring so much pain, she always managed to be positive about it all. She is a Shero! Debi truly lived and loved life to the fullest through traveling (both within the US and abroad), spending time outdoors whether it was on a beach or camping in the woods. She had a great love for nature and animals. She also enjoyed, road trips, the latest gadgets, Knitting & crafts, her Frog (Fully Relying on God) collection and most of all creating memories with her family and friends.
