Deborah Kostyal, 57, loving daughter, sister, wife, and mother passed away on Sunday, September 13, 2020, after a two-year battle with cancer.

Debbie always had a giving heart and cared for others. Her wishes were that her body is donated to Anatomy Gifts Registry so that, even in death, she could help others. She was known to have the biggest heart on the planet.

Debbie will forever be cherished by many and missed by all.


She is preceded in death by her parents, Albert and Mavis Wilson.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
