Deborah Sue Confer, 43, of Edinboro, formerly of Mill Village, went onto be with Our Lord and her father Ray Moore, Sr., on Friday, March 11, 2016.  She was born in Erie on November 11, 1972.  She is the daughter of Katherine Moore (Graham) and the late Ray Moore, Sr..

Deb leaves behind her husband Ron, her sons, Michael and his girlfriend, Lacey Jo VanSlyke, and John and his girlfriend, Sami Jones, and a precious granddaughter, Paisley Mae Confer.  Also surviving are her three brothers, Curtis Moore of Tennessee, Ray Moore Jr., and his wife, Barb of Waterford and Walter Ardel Moore of Union City; a sister, Patrica Gawlinski of North Carolina; three nieces, Erin Moore–Wilkerson (her children, Mia (10), Jazmine (8) and Julius (6)), Tara Moore, all of Tennessee, Kayla Confer of Meadville; three nephews, Mark Gawlinski, Steven Gawlinski and his wife Tunga all of North Carolina and Jesse Moore of Waterford.  She also leaves behind step-sisters, nieces and nephews; her mother-in-law, Marilyn Eickley of Edinboro; father-in-law, Dave Confer, Sr., of New York; two sister-in-laws, Tina Confer of New York and Katrina Eickley of Edinboro; two brother-in-laws, Dave Confer, Jr., and wife, Barby of Meadville, and Shawn Confer and wife, Amy of Allentown, PA.

Deb wrote a lot of poetry, she even had a book called “There can be only Love”.

Deb worked at Walmart in Edinboro unloading trucks every night.  She was also a member of the Lakeland Bulldog Club.  Deb enjoyed spending her time with her family, reading her Bible, and listening to her Christian music.  She also loved playing with all her bulldogs, especially Snuggles who loved to give her slobbery kisses.  She loved her granddaughter, Paisley, and when she was with her she would hog her all to herself and wouldn't let anyone else hold her.

She will be remembered for her beautiful heart, smile and her strength.  In spite of all she endured, she could always laugh and make everyone else laugh with her.  She was one who would tell you she loved you every time she talked to you.  She will be remembered most by the way she made you feel special, important and loved.  Deb will never really be gone.  She will be in our hearts forever and our love for her and memories of her will stay with us always.  Deb had many friends, Amanda Howard, Crystal Bennett, Tami Jarvis, Alyssa Nicholas, just to name a few.
