Debra Ann Schoen

d. October 13, 2023

Debbie was a devoted and LOVING wife to her high school sweetheart, Steve; to whom she was married to for 47 very special years. Beloved daughter of the late Bernard and Dorothy Conway. Proud mother of Dianna (Kenny) and Kristen (Alberto), and beloved Mimi to Jackson, Cole, Catalina and Viviana. Debbie is the second oldest of six children: Bernard “Skip” (Susan), John, Kathleen Cancel (Barry), The Late Timothy (Joanne), and The Late Nancy.  

Debbie graduated from Sachem High School in 1972. After obtaining her Bachelor’s in Education she later obtained a Master’s of Education plus an additional 75 credits. Debbie was a dedicated educator for 28 years and built lifelong relationships with her students. 

She enjoyed gardening, photography, the beach, and nature. She summoned many a hummingbird to her back porch feeder. She traveled to many amazing places with her family and friends, including multiple trips to Hawaii which was her most cherished place to spend time with her husband. She fulfilled many of her lifelong dreams including swimming with dolphins, diving at night with manta rays, zip lining and seeing the wild horses at the Outer Banks.  

Her grandchildren were the light of her life and provided her with endless laughter and joy.

Debbie maintained many friendships and those who know her will agree that she had the biggest heart and was an incredibly special person.
