With family by her side, Deborah Jean ‘Debbie’ Stokke passed away peacefully at St. Joseph’s Home - Carmel Hospice in Medicine Hat on Wednesday, January 22, 2020, at the age of 64 years. Deborah’s memory will live on in the hearts of her parents, Douglas and Dalaine Wagar; two sons, Jason (Nadine Moncks) Stokke and his children, Isla Stokke and Clara Stokke; Randy Stokke and his children, Annabel Stokke and Benjamin Stokke; siblings, Dwayne (Denise) Wagar, Donita (Brad) Reid and Melody (Ron) Pettit as well as two nieces, Kayla and Krystal and one nephew, Jesse. Debbie was passionate about her work as a Massage Therapist and took special interest in treating and providing comfort to cancer survivors. She was a loving and adored mother and grandmother who easily won the hearts of all those whose paths she crossed. In keeping with Debbie’s wishes, her life will be honoured and her memory cherished without the proceedings of a formal service.
I met Debbie a number of years ago through our common interest in the healing arts. At that time in her life, she had realized the importance of following her own path. She went on to encourage others to do so as well, while pursuing knowledge to provide the best kind of care. I am sorry to hear that she has left life at such an early age, though she made the most of her time. My condolences to her family.
My deepest sympathy to Debbie's family. I will miss her very much. Debbie was my massage therapist for many years and over those years I got to know of Debbie's family plus a lot of things in general through the little talk sessions we had, of course, our little laughter sessions as well. She was so knowledgable in her field of massage therapy and helped me out greatly both mentally and physically. She was such a beautiful lady inside and out.
I AM DEEPLY SAD TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR MOM. I HAVE KNOWN DEBBIE SINCE OUR FIRST BOUT. LATELY SHE HAS BEEN HELPIG ME WITH MY LEGS. VERY KIND, SOFT AND AND AN AMAZING GIRL. I WILL MISS HER SESSIONS AND HER COMPANY. I DID MEET YOU BOYS WHEN SHE WAS IN THE HOSPITAL YEARS AGO. SHE WAS VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT HER SWIMMING CLASSES AND CARED ABOUT HER C.PATIENTS. SHE HAD A WAY OF MAKING C. PATIENTS FEEL BETTER. SHE USED TO SAY "COULD YOU PRAY HARDER FOR ME" I DID HAVE HER IN MY PRAYERS EVERY NIGHT. WITH LOVING THOUGHTS OF HER. I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HER FOR SO MANY REASIONS. KATHY KUNTZ
Our deepest Condolences and Prayers
Jason, Randy & families, we are so very sorry for the loss of your Mom. She was a kind and caring friend.
Hugs to all
