She touched the lives of many students in her 34-year career. Debbi had many hobbies. She was a gifted basket weaver. Her talents earned her a place at the Blue Skies Gallery in Hampton, VA where she sold her baskets. She was also one of the founders of the Tidewater Basketry Guild. Anyone who knew Deb knew she was crazy about her dogs. This love she had led her into the dog ring where she would show her dogs and those of friends.

What our families say...

Altmeyer was incredible in their reliability and conscientious effort to detail. I personally worked from beginning to end with Joseph Limback. What an absolute blessing that was. From the first meeting we had a very easy communication path because Joseph took complete control to oversee our families welfare. Our family couldn’t have asked for better care and comfort of our love one.
