Debra (Debbie) Ann Rine, 59, passed away on Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016 in Virginia Beach.

Born on Oct. 27, 1956 in Malden, Mass., Debbie was the daughter of Leon and Jean Bukirch. Debbie was a mother and grandmother.

She was preceded in death by her parents Leon and Jean Bukirch.

As one of the original Disco Queens, Debbie loved music and dancing. She loved to spend every moment she could playing with the joy of her life, her grandson Dominic. She loved to scrapbook and research her family’s ancestry. Debbie has touched many people in this world over her short life and has enriched their lives because of her bubbly personality and wonderful smile. If you ever met Debbie you learned what a wonderful hug was. The Boston Red Sox have lost one of their biggest fans.

Per Debbie’s wishes there will be no planned service. She believed those who knew her will understand and respect her wishes and will remember her as she was and smile.
