Debbie Lynn Elliott (Bachelor of Arts and Fine Arts, and a Master of Fine Arts).

Born in Edmonton May 17, 1964, and living in Peachland, BC passed away on July 9, 2022, at the Penticton Regional Hospital holding the hands of family and friend.

“Please accept me as you find me.”

Debbie was an artist, writer, daughter, sister, aunt, niece and friend. She is predeceased by her parents, Arthur (1999) and Marcelene Elliott (2020) of Peachland, and brother, Herbert (2019) of Edmonton.

Missing her are her siblings, Darlene (Wade) Romanko of Peachland and Tim (Janet) Elliott of Vermillion and her nephews and nieces in Kelowna and Sherwood Park. Also missing her are her extended family and her friends who reside in many places.

Deb was a creative inspiration and her visual and performing art has been shown in Canada and Europe. She was instrumental in ensuring Peachland featured an art gallery. Debbie lived her life enjoying the company of others and laughter while dancing to her own tune. Her favourite read was the “Poetics of Space” by Garston Bachelard and her art was influenced by the Fluxus group, Joseph Eyebeuys, and the composer John Cage. Inspired by music, flowers, gardens, people, strange and eclectic things she trusted in what the universe offered her.

Her family and friends would like to thank the staff at the Penticton Regional Hospital for all their compassionate care during these past few months. As Debbie floats away, in lieu of flowers and a funeral service, donations to the SPCA are welcome at
