Deborah Jane Culligan 6/26/1951 - 5/27/2012 Debbie lost her battle with cancer and passed away peacefully with her family by her side at the age of 60.
Debbie was born in Methuen, Massachusetts to Alfred and Serina Ursillo. She went to Grossmont High School in La Mesa, California and Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. Beloved and patient wife of 26 years to Thomas J Culligan III. She was the devoted mother of James Culligan who tragically passed away at the age of 15 in 1997. She's survived by her mother Serina, her sister Barbara Delaney, her daughter Vanessa Kammuller, and her step-daughters Kathy Williams and Kory Paine. Debbie was the most devoted "nana" to Vanessa and Ken's kids; Ryan (15), Serina (14), Madison (9), and James (5), Kathy and Daniel's kids; Katlyn (17), Zach (17), Gigi (16), Tommy (16) and Joey (12) and Kory and Ron's kids; Brandon (26), Katie (18), Hunter (12) and Logan (11).
Debbie will always be best known for her deep sense of love and loyalty to her family and friends. Her biggest thrill was being on vacation or at home with her family and most importantly her many grandchildren. Debbie was a beautiful, compassionate, loving, witty, and funny with an infectious laugh. For all of us lucky enough to have known her, she will be deeply missed. We are all blessed to have had her in our life. Debbie loved her hobbies of playing golf, knitting and needlepointing. She learned the game of golf from Tom, and enjoyed playing so much that it enabled her to compete and win the Women's Club Championship at the Peninsula Golf and Country Club. She loved knitting and needlepoint so much so that she and Vanessa opened a 'Shoppe'.
A Memorial Service will be held at Our Lady of Angels in Burlingame on Thursday at 7 PM. The following morning at 10 AM, a procession will leave Crosby-N. & Gray and head to Holy Cross Cemetery in Colma for the burial. Friends and family can join the procession or meet at the cemetery. In Lieu of flowers or gifts, please consider making a donation to the American Cancer Society or the Zen Hospice Project in San Francisco.
