Deborah Lyon, 69, of Lincroft, NJ, passed away on January 20, 2024 surrounded by loved ones. She was born on April 7, 1954 in Washington, D.C. and moved to NJ in 1976. Deborah was a loving, supportive, and thoughtful mother, who was dedicated to her family. She cherished her role as a grandmother, and it was clear that her grandchildren brought her immense love and joy. She was hard-working and devoted to her work and dearly loved her colleagues, many of whom she considered as extended family.

She also worked as a teacher at Mountain Hill School in Middletown, NJ from 1995-2017. Deborah’s nurturing personality and dedication to caring for others made her an adored figure in both the medical and educational fields.

She was a proud grandmother to three grandchildren: Cassandra and Tessa Krimm and Tyler Lyon. Deborah is also survived by her brothers, Steve and Kevin Cole, and her loving partner Dennis Fowler.
