Deborah Ann Boran


Deborah Ann Boran

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our dearest wife, mum, and gram, Deborah Ann Boran, 66, of Pugwash Point Road, Pugwash, NS. Deb passed away at the Moncton Hospital on Sunday, November 17, 2019. Born in Sackville, Deb was a daughter of the late Arnold and Bernice (Hicks) Tower.

Professionally, Deb was a very well respected Early Childhood Educator in her early years and during her twenty five years in the financial services industry with TD Bank.

Deb was our best friend, our rock and our beacon during difficult storms. She was deeply devoted to her family and friends and was actively involved in the development and raising of each of her grandchildren. She was always the go to person for those in need of a shoulder. She was an active runner having participated with her running partner, Tom in many races and marathons. She liked to knit and was an avid reader.

She will be dearly missed by her best friend and husband of 46 years, Tom, Pugwash Point Rd, Pugwash; her sons, Andrew, Halifax, Nick (Jan), Halifax, and Patrick (Laura), Chambly, PQ; her beloved grandchildren, Quinn, Ashley, and Cody; her brother Gary (Elizabeth) Tower, Amherst; her sister-in-law, Ruth (Bill) Spence, Port Howe, NS and her brother-in-law, Jim Betts, Lower Sackville, NS, as well as several nieces and nephews and her faithful four-legged companion, "Miss Winnie".

Besides her parents, Deb was predeceased by her sisters, Carol Betts and Joan Smith, and a brother, Keith Tower.
