Debera M. Alexander, affectionately known as ‘Debbie,’ to her loved ones, went home to be with the Lord on November 18th at 8:10 pm, at Osteopathic Hospital, due to COVID 19 complications. Debera was 60 years of age at the time of her passing and will be sorely missed by her children, grandchildren, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and extended family.
Debera was preceded in death by her mother, Doris J Kent, and her Father, Ronald ‘Woody’ Miller. She is survived by her brother- Ronald Kent, sisters- Saundra Golden, Judith Macklin, and Iris Miller, children- Denise Lackey, Donelle Lackey, and Audlandus Duffie jr., and a host of grandchildren- Darnise Enos, Jammarr Anderson, Jaslyn Fludd, D’ania Fludd, Deandrae Lackey, Dayshawn Lackey, Denasia Lackey, Inzha Duffie, La,’mir Duffe, Aireona Duffie, and Airis Duffie- who she loved and cherished with all her heart.
Debera was resilient in overcoming many challenges she faced over the course of her life. She enjoyed activities that allowed her to express her creativity such as gardening, interior design, doing puzzles, and exploring new technology. In addition to these, she relished going to church, listening to gospel music, and spending time with her grandchildren. Through her work, Debera excelled as a Lead Post Processing 3D Printing Technician, in the 3D Printing Center, within TE Connectivity. She was known for her diligence, and attention to detail, and loved her work so much, that often she had to be reminded when it was time to break or even when it was time to go home. During her tenure, Debera received three Excellent Customer Service Awards, a reflection on how greatly she was admired and respected by all who had the opportunity to work with her.
To those who knew Debera, and to those whose lives she touched with her infectious personality, she will be remembered for her big heart, outgoing and generous spirit, and discerning perspective on life. She valued family above all else and was always there as someone to lean on for those in need. She was bright like the sun, and the world is a much darker place in her absence.
Debera’s memorial service will be held on December 3rd, at Cornerstone Baptist Church- 1099 Highspire Rd. Harrisburg, Pa, 17111.
