Debbie passed away in Regina, SK on Friday, July 22, 2022. She was predeceased by her parents, Phillip Tanner and Evelyn Nokusis; brothers, Darrelle, Curtis and Hilliard (McNab); sisters Ethel and Marilyn; nephews Curtis and Lonnie; and grandchildren Nolen, Alonzo and Jadon. Debbie will be lovingly remembered by her sons Darrelle (Lana) and Jesse; sisters Linda and Bonnie; spouse Barry Ryder; brother-in-law Kevin Ryder; nieces Tiffany and Elizabeth (Brad); nephews Merril, Ian, Faron, Chad and Todd; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; special brother, Frank; and special cousins, Leonard and Theresa.
Though it was difficult to leave her sons, Debbie knew it was time to go. She was loved by all. Too many to name. She had her doors open to anyone and everyone, day or night, ALWAYS. Debbie loved celebrating everyone. She touched the hearts of all who crossed her path and she will live on in all of those who knew her through our hearts, stories and memories. Though she is gone, Debbie will never be forgotten.
We would like to extend a special thank you to the nurses and staff in palliative care at the Pasqua Hospital for the care and support they have given the family.
