In Memoriam: Debra Jean Lofdahl (Dec. 31, 1954 – Nov. 28, 2022) 

December 2022 Posted in Obituary

Debra Jean (Czarny) Lofdahl was born in Whittier, California. Debbie moved to Silverton, Oregon with her family in 1955 and lived in the area for the rest of her life. 

She graduated from Silverton High School in 1973, and married Larry Jay Lofdahl in Silverton on March 7, 1975. 

In June of 1984 Larry and Debbie moved to their dream home in the country outside of Silverton. Larry and Debbie’s son, Louis, was born Jan. 7, 1986.

Debbie worked as a bookkeeper for many local businesses throughout the years including Blazer Industries, Silverton Family Clinic, Portrait Express, and local accountant Charles G. Pattee, P.C. She retired in 2019. Debbie was valued everywhere she worked for her attention to detail and caring nature.

Debbie had many passions in life. She  enjoyed spending time with her friends and family, music, painting, and liked speaking French. 

Debbie always loved animals and living in the country allowed her to raise dogs, ducks, chickens, horses, and goats, among others. She cherished her horses and when they became too old to ride, she still took joy in spending time with them every day. She had many dogs throughout the years, and they loyally followed her everywhere on the farm or sat by her feet in her studio while she painted.

Debbie was preceded in death by her parents, Albert Frank Czarny and Marion Hazel Scheid, and brother, Frank Czarny.

Debbie leaves behind her husband, Larry; son, Louis; two sisters, Georgia (Ron) Linn and Linda (Ray) Perkins; and brother, James (Betty) Czarny.

Celebration of life arrangements will be forthcoming.
