Debra L. Whipple, surrounded by family, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Thursday, June 24, 2021, in San Antonio, TX. She was born on July 19, 1956, in Lewiston, Maine. Debra lived in Lewiston until 2016 when she decided to move with her daughter and travel. Debra enjoyed the outdoors, camping, fishing and traveling in her RV. She was a fun-loving person, who was very passionate about life. She was the kind of woman that would open her home to family and friends in need. Most of all she loved spending time with her family. Debra leaves behind to cherish her memory her husband, Daniel Bender; loving children, Donella Beaulieu, Jeremiah and his wife Mayra Ayotte, Maurice Ayotte; grandchildren, Justin, Mikayla, Johnathan, Chase, Emily, and Ella.

  1. My love and prayers to Donnella and Jeremiah and their families. I love you all and I loved Aunt Debbie. I hope she can Rest In Peace knowing her family loves her and we will see her in the next life❤️ Wish I had pictures 🥲🙏❤️

  2. I have so many to choose from but the one I remember the most was how my grammy gave me one of the coolest bedrooms a kid could get. My own ball pit, stars on the ceiling, my own couch, I was living like a king. She made my childhood amazing. I could always call her when I needed her. Should loved us so much. I miss you. I love you.
