Deborah "Debbie" Sue Baab

May 30, 1954 - July 2, 2021

Deborah “Debbie” Sue Baab, 67, passed away on Friday, July 2, 2021, in the comfort of her home. She was born to the late Nancy Jane (Warner) Zuckerman and Robert Lester Anderson in Southhampton, New York, on May 30, 1954.

Predeceased by her husband Harry Baab of 41 years, she was a supportive and loving military wife, mom, grandma, friend, and colleague to all who became part of her circle in life. Debbie is survived by her daughter Heidi Melissa Salway; son-in-law Kyle Patrick Salway; granddaughters Riley Paige Salway and Kaitlyn Malloy Salway; her cousin Stephanie Steidel of New York; other family members; and treasured friends who have come to be family over the years.

Debbie will always be remembered for so much, but especially for being a fun-loving Nonnie, an easy-going friend, a wonderful cook, and for always being the rock that so many of us needed along the way.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, September 10, 2021 from 6:00 – 9:00 PM at Lesner Inn, 3319 Shore Dr, Virginia Beach, VA 23451.
