Debra Rose Oleyniczak, age 60, died peacefully in her sleep at her apartment in Appleton on February 1st, 2021. She was born on September 7th,1960 to the late Edward & Elaine (Gazella) Oleyniczak, Sr.

Debbie was so very happy with her recent recovery from Lymphoma. She got the all-clear a few months ago and was on the road to better health. All Debbie talked about this winter was fishing this summer. Even during her Chemo treatments last year, she was on the lake every chance she could be with her brother Ed and her sister-in-law Faith. She bought a new rod & reel and was eagerly anticipating this fishing season. Debbie was also a huge, huge Packer fan, and also loved chatting with her cousin Babs, friends Barb, Dee & Brian. She also enjoyed coloring pictures, writing songs and playing with her kitty Mac. 

Debbie was survived by her brother Edward & his wife Faith Oleyniczak, her nieces Heather (Keith) Folkman, their kids Keifer & Raya, niece Amber (friend Rich) Denton, nephew Erik (Katie) Oleyniczak & their children Emerson, Lauren & Joel.

Her father & mother, Edward Oleynicak Sr. & Elaine Oleyniczak & Nephew-in-law, Brock Denton preceded her in death.

Debbie will be missed by not only by her family but all her friends in life. There is such a void and sadness in our hearts and we will sadly miss our fishing buddy.

Celebration and honoring Debbie & her life will be at a later date due to the Covid pandemic. Expressions of sympathy may be shared at
