Obituary for Debra J. Peduzzi

Debra Jean Peduzzi, age 64, of Carlisle, passed away Friday, March 2, 2018 at her residence, surrounded by her loving family.
She was born July 29, 1953 in Newville to the late Winfeard C. Crites and Peggy Jane (Mentzer) Crites Johnson, and was the wife of Nicholas B. Peduzzi, Sr., to whom she had been married for 46 years.
Debra and her husband were former members of Dickinson Presbyterian Church, before joining Second Presbyterian Church, of Carlisle, in 2000. She was a 1971 graduate of Big Spring High School. For the majority of her working life, she was employed as a secretary — first for the Carlisle Sentinel newspaper, then for B-H Agency Realtors in Carlisle. She eventually landed at Big Spring School District where she worked for over 25 years, starting as an aide at Frankford Elementary School, then moving to the district administrative office from which she retired in December of 2015 as Secretary of Special Projects. Debra enjoyed camping and the outdoors, as well as yard sales, flea markets, and shopping, but will be remembered most as a deeply devoted wife, mother, and grandmother.
In addition to her husband, Debra is survived by: a daughter, Nicole R. Hennessey (and husband Sean); a son, Nicholas B. Peduzzi, Jr.; and grandchildren, Avery and Conor Hennessey. She is proceeded in passing by her parents and stepfather, Charles Johnson.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Hoffman Funeral Home & Crematory. Services will be private and at the discretion of the family.
