Deborah Lin Hagan ”Debbie, Deb”, age 64, passed away unfortunately at her home on November 17, 2020. Daughter of Marjorie (Meyer) and James Bresnan, Debbie was born in Seattle, Washington on November 25, 1955 and raised in the Seattle area, where she graduated from Cleveland HS in 1973. She loved the PNW and raised her family here enjoying the mountains and rivers in the area. Deb was a natural born caregiver and after starting her family, she felt called to nursing. In 1994 she graduated from Highline Community College as a Registered Nurse. For the next 26 years Debbie would work in many different fields of nursing. Always a favorite of both patients and co-workers, she had a passion for providing dignity and quality of life for her patients. She gave selflessly of her knowledge, time, and love to all she cared for. A “master” of her craft, she retired just this November from Enumclaw Health and Rehab.
When not working, Deb enjoyed being outdoors in the sunshine (she was looking forward to moving to Arizona), enjoying the view of Mt. Rainier, and working in her yard. She loved learning and was never afraid to take on a new skill or project. She had a unique and creative spirit that was reflected in her love of gadgets, crafts, and photography among many other hobbies. Her children and grandchildren were her pride and joy. Gathering them around the fire pit for s’mores or organizing matching outfits for photos, she found joy in surrounding them with her love and support. She delighted in hosting gatherings, the 4th of July being her favorite holiday, bringing her family and friends together and collecting the memories in photographs. Deb was known for her love of fashion and shoes, which always matched her bright and sunny personality. She had a ferocious spirit and a smile that could light up a room. She leaves a legacy that will live on in the many lives that she touched.
She is survived by her beloved husband Dennis; her siblings: Cindy (Gus), Becky (Ken), and Ray Bresnan; her best friend Debbie Rowe (Mark); her children: Nathan Hugdahl, Jason Hugdahl (Cindy), Rachael Gifford, Victor Stoltey (Malory), Matthew Bresnan-Stoltey, Richard Hagan (Ashley), Kaycee Schweikl (Tony), Michelle Bresnan, and Christina Parks (Chris); her many grandchildren and great grandchildren; as well as her beloved French bulldog, Griffey. She was preceded to heaven by her parents Marjorie and James.
A memorial and graveside service at Enumclaw Cemetery will be held at a later date when it is safe. Flowers are welcome and memorial donations may be made to Doterra Healing Hands, a charity that was close to her heart.
