Deborah Ann Richardson (Hallet)

February 26, 1952 - November 23, 2019


After a lengthy battle with cancer Debbie passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family. Debbie is survived by her loving husband Bruce Richardson, children Kevin (Moe) Strzok, Dawn (Scott) Spann and siblings Larry (Holly) Hallet, Randy (Shannon) Hallet, Shannon (Dale) Halldorson and Pat (Carrie) Hallet and grandson Jayden Strzok.

Predeceased by her parents Robert and Ella Hallet.

Debbie grew up in the Cowichan Valley and was involved in sports as a youth and into adulthood. Deb was involved in CVACS and field hockey.

Debbie coached girls soccer and was passionate about softball. She continued to be involved with softball, coaching in the Cowichan Valley for many years.  Deb was known around the ballpark as the most vicious scorekeeper ever!

Debbie worked as a pharmacy technician and worked for Pharmasave for over 20 years. Debbie loved her job and it showed through her caring, compassion and excellent service that she provided to all her clients. She made a lasting impression on everyone that she cared for.

Debbie found the love of her life Bruce Richardson, and they married nine years ago.  They shared their time between Palm Springs and the Cowichan Valley. Debbie and Bruce made many close friends during their travels and enjoyed new adventures together.

Deb was the perfect combination of quick wit, humor and caring for others. She will be dearly missed by all that knew her.

The family wishes to extend their gratitude to Homecare Nursing, Home Care Support and all of those involved in Debbie’s care.

A heartfelt thank you to Dr. Masuda for all of her support especially during Debbie’s final days.

In lieu of flowers, donations are gratefully accepted in Deb’s name to Cowichan Valley Hospice House.
