Deborah M. Paquette Ingersoll, age 68, passed away unexpectedly on January 30, 2021. She was born May 6 , 1952 in Utica, New York to Lynn and Marilyn Paquette. She married her longtime friend and love of her life, John Ingersoll Sr., in October of 1971.

Debbie was a true matriarch in every sense of the word. She was a dedicated mother first and foremost, and treasured every moment with her children; she especially loved her role as Grandma. Her family will most fondly remember her in the kitchen; cooking, baking, and infusing love into every dish she made, along with a sprinkle, dash, and pinch of everything else.

Debbie was preceded in death by her son, Craig Ingersoll. She is survived by her husband of 49 years, John Ingersoll Sr; her son, John Ingersoll Jr. and his wife Shawn; her grandchildren, Taylor DeVito, Jacob, Sophia, and Carson Ingersoll and Samantha and Ryan Thompson; her great grandchildren, Ayden Engram and Rylee Thompson; her sister, Lori Forbes and beloved nieces Hillary Forbes and Hannah Forbes and her fiancé Richard LaSalle and two very special children, Steven and Kylie; her brother, Bruce Paquette and niece and nephew Grace and Alex Paquette; her brother, Wayne Paquette; her brother Lynn Paquette and his wife Bertha; her brother and sister in law, Edward and Elaine Ingersoll; and her beloved chihuahua, Duncan. She touched these lives deeply along with many more extended family members and friends.
