On May 9, 2019, Deborah (Deb) E. Bunn died at the age of 70 at the Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake after a long battle with cancer.

Her two children, Wyl Marvin and Mardie Befort, were at her side when she passed. Deb was predeceased by her husband, Jere Bunn, whom she married in 1993.

In 2006, Deb and Jere moved to Keene Valley where they were active in the Alcoholics Anonymous organization helping others overcome their problems with drugs and alcohol. Deb also did volunteer work in local prisons working with women with addictions.

For several years, Deb worked in the U.S. post offices in Keene and Jay and was a passionate supporter of rescue animals through the local SPCA. Prior to moving to Keene Valley, Deb and Jere spent 14 years in New Zealand helping the New Zealand government establish a drug and addiction rehabilitation program. During that time, Deb worked for a New Zealand hospital as editor of the hospital's newsletter and received accolades for her articles and artwork. In 1966, Deb attended the Kansas City Art Institute where she met and married her first husband, Chuck Marvin. Deb and Chuck owned and operated the Orange Wedge jewelry store in St Paul, Minnesota. Deb also worked for the Intel Corporation as a computer aided designer for several years.

Deb is survived by her two children, Wyl Marvin and Mardie Befort; one sister, Emily Andrew; two brothers, Rob and Jeb Boyle; two nieces, Melissa Estes and Amanda Boyle; one nephew, Dylan Boyle; and seven grandchildren, Morgan, Adi, Fin, Cameron and Cody Marvin, and Shane and Charlie Befort.

We will miss seeing Deb driving about with her two constant pup companions in the back seat of her pickup truck that bore the distinctive license plate EZ DZ IT.

A memorial celebration of her life will be held at the Keene Valley Congregational Church on Saturday, June 29 from 1 to 3 p.m. The public is welcome to attend.
