Obituary for Deborah Jean Sarris

Deborah Jean Sarris of Novi was born February 7, 1952 in Royal Oak, Michigan to Paul and Martha (nee: Kemppainen) Jurmu. She died June 15, 2020 at the age of 68.

Mrs. Sarris is the beloved wife of the late Timothy Sarris. Loving mother of Rhiannon (Robert) Cavenaugh and John (Melanie Marks) Sarris. Grandmother of Morgan, Raelyn, Jace and Quinn. Dear sister of Anne (Doug) Morin, Mardi (Brendan O’Brien) Jurmu, Paul (Joanie) Jurmu and John Jurmu. She is preceded in death by her siblings Becky, Donna, Ruth, Tim and Mark. She is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends.

Debbie found great joy in keeping good company around her.  She loved to laugh and spent many happy hours with her family; having dinners and playing games.  From Skip-Bo to Farkle or a night out for some BINGO to a quiet evening on the beach, Debbie was happiest in the company of those closest to her.  She was a caring, loving, jovial lady, and she will be greatly missed by us all.  

A private family memorial service will be held due to the current restrictions of public gatherings in place due to the COVID -19 Virus.  Memorials to the University of Michigan Transplant Team appreciated.
