Union — Deborah L."‘Debbie" Farley, 64, died unexpectedly, Tuesday, Aug. 6, 2019, at Pen Bay Medical Center in Rockport.

Born in Rockland Aug. 21, 1954, she was the daughter of Carleton and Thelma Kimball Taylor. Growing up in Union, she attended school there and was a 1972 graduate of Medomak Valley High School.

Debbie resided in Union most of her adult life. While raising her son there, she met George Farley and the two were married Oct. 10, 1987. Shortly after, George adopted Debbie’s son, Jeremy, and raised him as his own.

Over the years she held several jobs, including working for SeaCoast Security for many years, and later at Walmart and Union Pottery.

Debbie was known for her "green thumbs" and enjoyed working in her flower gardens and moon garden (an all-white garden that glows in the light of the moon). And, boy, did she get upset if a flower "accidentally" came up a different color!

A very sociable person, she loved keeping up with family and friends through Facebook on her iPad, and she never missed one of her favorite TV shows.

Debbie will be sadly missed by all who loved her.

Predeceased by her parents and a brother, Anthony Taylor, Debbie is survived by her beloved husband, George Farley, of Union; her son, Jeremy Farley, of South Carolina; her brother Dennis Taylor and his wife, Jenny, of Bristol; her nephews, Bruce Taylor and Corey Taylor; a niece, Trish Taylor; and many aunts, uncles, cousins; and special friends.

Family and friends are invited to visit from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 13, at Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, 110 Limerock St., Rockland, where a celebration of her life will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14. Interment will follow at Lakeview Cemetery, Union. The Rev. David English will officiate.

Although flowers are gratefully accepted, donations may be made to the Union Ambulance Service, P.O. Box 186, Union, ME 04862.
