Debbie Barton

(nee Heim)

It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of a truly wonderful lady on February 9, 2018 at the age of 59 years.   

Debbie ‎is deeply cherished and lovingly missed by her daughter Erica (Billy) Mahood and her two grandchildren, the apples of her eye, Paige and Brady, who she loved‎ with every ounce of her being.  Also left to cherish her memory is Debbie's dearest soul mate and friend Barry Jacobs who meant the world to her.

Debbie also leaves behind one sister, Sheila (Neil) Poot, their children, Sara (Paul) and Shaun (Danielle) as well as great niece and nephew, Sophie and Easton.  Debbie was predeceased by her parents Emil and Inga Heim. 


Debbie was born in Winnipeg on November 25, 1958 during a snowstorm, and when the storm ended a family began.   Debbie grew up in the Windsor Park/Southdale area attending JH Bruns Collegiate where she made many life-long friends. In 1980 Debbie started a family of her own as Erica was welcomed to the world and Debbie enjoyed many happy years raising Erica while working at MTS and then later as a consultant at L.A. Weight Loss. 


Debbie ‎enjoyed all kinds of music, travel, and having fun with her friends. With the arrival of Paige and Brady, Debbie became Oma and held the title with pride and joy, spoiling her grandchildren at every opportunity. They loved her as much as she loved them. 


Debbie was a kind, beautiful and fun soul and life would not be as it is today without her, and will never be the same tomorrow now that she is on a new journey. She will be dearly missed by all of us. 


We invite you to celebrate Debbie's ‎life with us on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at 11:30 am at the E J Coutu & Co. Funeral Chapel, 680 Archibald Street, Winnipeg.


Forever young Debbie!  We love you!
