UNION — Deborah L. ‘Debbie’ Farley, 64, died unexpectedly, Tuesday, August 6, 2019 at Pen Bay Medical Center, in Rockport.

Born in Rockland, August 21, 1954, she was the daughter of Carleton and Thelma Kimball Taylor. Growing up in Union, she attended school there and was a 1972 graduate of Medomak Valley High School.

Debbie has resided in Union most of her adult life. While raising her son there, she met George Farley and the two were married on October 10, 1987. Shortly after, George adopted Debbie’s son, Jeremy, and raised him as his own.

Over the years she has held several jobs, including working for SeaCoast Security for many years, and later at Walmart and Union Pottery.

Debbie was known for her ‘green thumbs’ and enjoyed working in her flower gardens and moon garden (an all-white garden that glows in the light of the moon). And boy did she get upset if a flower ‘accidentally’ came up
a different color!

A very social person, she loved keeping up with family and friends through Facebook on her iPad, and she never missed one of her favorite TV shows.

Debbie will be sadly missed by all who loved her.

Predeceased by her parents and a brother, Anthony Taylor; Debbie is survived by her beloved husband, George Farley of Union; her son, Jeremy Farley of South Carolina; her brother, Dennis Taylor and his wife Jenny of
Bristol; her nephews, Bruce Taylor and Corey Taylor; a niece, Trish Taylor; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and special friends.

Family and friends are invited to visit Tuesday, August 13, from 5 to 7 p.m., at Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, 110 Limerock Street, Rockland, where a celebration of her life will be held Wednesday, August 14, at 1 p.m., Interment will follow at Lakeview Cemetery, Union. The Reverend David English will officiate.
