Power, Debra Lee - My name is Debbie Power and I have died from cancer on August 3, 2017 at the age of 63. I decided to write my own obituary because I didn't want anyone trying to write a glowing report of me. I really didn't have any big accomplishments or receive any major awards in life, aside from giving birth to my two wonderful daughters Jody and Ashley. I always worked and tried to do the best for my family. I didn't always do the right thing or say the right thing, so if there is anyone I hurt, I am truly sorry. My life was not perfect and I encountered many bumps in the road, but we learned, accepted and moved on. Some people may think it's odd to write your own obituary but I think it's great because I get a chance to say Thank You and Goodbye to all the people who helped me along the way, to those who loved me, cared for me, laughed and cried with me. I was born in Winnipeg, MB on November 24, 1953. At the age of 10 months, my mother Linda Mae Rupert passed and my sister and I went to live with our grandparents in Saskatchewan. We then moved back to Winnipeg and in 1981 moved to Edmonton, AB and finally to Vernon, BC for retirement in 2010. I am predeceased by my parents Leo and Jean Taphorn and my eldest grandson Justin James Charbonneau. I am survived by my daughters Jody of Vernon, BC and Ashley (Derek) of Kelowna, BC, my grandchildren Jayden, Andrew, Natalia, Jacob as well as Derek's daughter Amanda, my step-sister Pat Gauthier and her Winnipeg family, Paula Taphorn from Calgary and her family, and far too many aunts, uncles and cousins to mention. I have requested there be no service. If you think of me and would like to do something in my honor, be kind or give someone a hug in my memory.
