It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the passing of our wife, mother, grandmother, sister and daughter suddenly and unexpectedly on Wednesday night at the age of 58.

She will be missed by husband Richard Chernick, children, Zach (m. Patra), Thea, and Samara Chernick, grandson Kieran Chernick, mother Anita Cohen (Galpern), and brothers Jeffrey (m. Cheryl) and Marshall Stern (m. Mireille). Funeral services were held on March 1st. As Debi had such a passion for helping and supporting those around her, the family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in her honour to the Canadian Mental Health Association.
