Buffalo - Debra J. Green "Loving Mother & Grandmother"
Debra J Green made her ascent to heaven on Monday July 08, 2019 preceded by her brother David Cummings, her stepfather Robert Nolan, her father Donald Ransome, and her husband Harold J Green, Sr.
Debra was born on July 16, 1953 to Virginia Nolan and Donald Ransom in Olean NY. At a young age Robert Nolan (Debra’s stepfather) began his journey to an everlasting fatherly love when he stepped into her life. Though Debra Green was born in New York, she enjoyed traveling to Florida for Vacation so much that she eventually made it her home.
While Debra Green was in Florida, she pursued her career in nursing. She was a nurse in Florida for many years before returning to New York in 2008. Since 2008 she has resided in Buffalo, NY. She loved her career and all the people she got to help. Nursing truly was the perfect career for her to express her love for helping others. Since she was a little girl she enjoyed caring for others and keeping the family together.
Debra Green always tried her best to make sure everyone stuck together. She took being a part of the family very seriously. Debra enjoyed singing while her husband and son played live music in the living room. Some relatives would join in and others would just sit and watch in awe. She had many other talents as well.
Debra Green always loved to swim and lay out in the sun. She would put butter all over her body and lay out in her pool on her body length floatie for hours until she burned in the sun. She loved a good tan! Another thing she enjoyed may have been her best kept secret, she could hula hoop like a pro.
Debra J Green was survived by her mother Virginia Nolan; her children Bart (Debbie Green), Brett(Tammy Green), Mae, and Jimmy(Edie Green); her grandchildren Roseanne, Thomas, Brooke, Maggie, James, and Mikey; her great grandchildren, Kaia, Laina, Sophia, Chloe, Ri’yan, and Jae’lana; her brothers Donald and Dale Cumming; her sisters Dawana (Javier Pollard) and Machelle (Alfredo Fernandez); her step mother Vi Pratt; her step daughter Lori (Kevin Fox); Lori’s children Maryanne, Christina, Bobby (Stephanie Fox), Michelle, and Lori’s grandchildren Allen, Brian, Gabriela, Patrick and Billy along with many other relatives and friends that were close enough to be her family.
