     Deborah “Deb” A. Foran, 59, of Linden, died Sunday, December 1, 2013.

     Born November 3, 1954, in Philadelphia, she was the daughter of John A. Foran of Marlton, NJ, and the late Dorothy M. (Kuriger) Foran.

     A loving mother and grandmother, whose love of family was as deep as her wit was quick. An avid reader, she worked diligently to pass along a love of reading and a thirst for knowledge to her children. She will be ever loved and deeply missed, especially during these times around the holidays, for which she had such passion, and from which she found such joy.

     Deb is survived by her three children, William J. (Erica) Holmes, of Linden, Keith B. (Kathleen) Holmes, of Williamsport, and Kaitlin E. Holmes of Williamsport, a brother William R. Foran, of Marlton, NJ, sister Margaret “Peg” F. Eroh, of Sinking Spring, three grandchildren, Maya M., Jackson L., and Lena R. Holmes.

     Funeral services will be held Thursday, December 5 at 1 p.m. at The Christian Church at Cogan Station, 5904 Lycoming Creek Road. Visitation will be held Wednesday from 6-8 p.m. at Knight-Confer Funeral Home, 1914 Memorial Avenue, Williamsport.

     In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made in Deb’s name to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.

I am saddened at the news of Deb's passing. I remember traveling with her and the family, and as she read Harry Potter to Kaitlin. A memory that has stuck with me all of these years as my kids get to be that age.

I will continue to keep those fun times close as I hope Bill, Keith and Kaitlin do as well! I am so sorry for your loss and wish you all support and love through this time.

Kaitlin, I am sorry to hear about your mother. I just read her obituary today when looking for her address to send a newsletter. While I haven't seen her in a while, I treasure our times together. She was indeed a very smart and witty person. I remember how hard she worked to get that degree, while at the same time being a mother to you all. And she was a hoot to work with. She was way too young to go. She loved you so much and was so proud of you.

Peace and Love, to you and your family, John
