Formerly of Campbell, OH - On Thursday, April 19, 2018, Debra Marie (Carey) Gonda, age 61, passed away at Briarfield Manor in Austintown after a two year fight with brain cancer. Debra was born in Youngstown on November 28, 1956 to Thomas S. and Genevieve (Ridel) Carey.
Debra is survived by her beloved daughter, Danielle (Chris) Kalbfell of Austintown and sister, Shirley Short of Youngstown.
Debra grew up in Liberty Twp and graduated from Liberty High School in 1974. She worked in the medical field most of her working life and held various positions. Her biggest and most joyous time since her diagnosis was being able to attend Danielle and Chris's wedding day in May of 2017. While she was confined to a wheelchair Deb reveled in the fact that she was able to "walk" her only daughter down the aisle.
A private remembrance gathering was held but her family will continue to celebrate Deb's life.
