Purves and his wife Jessica Purves; her four grandchildren: Lyle, Kiana, Jordan Rombough and Ozzy Purves. She also leaves her parents Eva Gould and Joe Gould, as well as her three brothers: Lawrence, Gary, and Donald Gould. Debra was predeceased by her sister Keri Gould.

I was so saddened to have heard about Debbie's passing. My sincere condolences are extended to all of Debbie's family. She was a great friend and I will always have wonderful memories of her.
