She will forever be remembered for the amazing, mother, sister, aunt and friend she truly was.
Left to cherish Deb’s memory are her adoring children, Hanna Garufi of Myrtle Beach & Jon Garufi of York, PA; the father of her children, Michael Garufi of Derry, PA; brother, Brian Widdows and his wife, Louise of Seattle, WA; aunt Debbie Widdows and her husband, Marc of Delmont, PA; cousins, Chelsea & Whitney Widdows of Delmont, PA; her beloved dogs, Oreo & Gus; as well as many supportive friends and neighbors.
