Deborah Stone

Deborah Anne Stone, 65, of Kennebunkport, died Aug. 17, 2018, surrounded by her loving family.

Deborah was born Jan. 24, 1953 in New York City, a twin daughter of Alfred and Sheila Stone. She earned her associate’s degree from Fisher Junior College and her bachelor’s degree from the University of New England. Deborah was an ed tech at Kennebunk High School and was very proud of her recent promotion from Ed Tech II to Ed Tech III.

Deborah loved spending time with her family and was a proud Nana to her grandchildren. She enjoyed walking along the beach and shoreline of Goose Rocks Beach and Biddeford Pool. Deborah also enjoyed gardening and after years of study became a master gardener. She used her skills in her own gardens, as well as created beautiful gardens and helped others through the Gardening Angels Program.

Deborah is lovingly remembered by her daughters, Heather Brennon Taylor and her husband, James of Del Norte, Colorado, and Sarah Jean Schuler and her husband, Jared, of Natick, Massachusetts; her father, Alfred Benjamin Stone of Palm Desert, California; her twin sister, Donna Stone Arpels and her husband, John, of Kennebunk; her brother, Christopher Stone of Punta Gorda, Florida; her grandchildren, Kellan and Everly Schuler; and her beloved partner, Robert Boucher.

Friends may visit from 4 to 7 pm on Thursday, Aug. 23, 2018 at Bibber Memorial Chapel, 67 Summer St., Kennebunk. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 24 at South Congregational Church, 2 North St., Kennebunkport with The Rev. Charles Whiston.
