Debra (Debbie) Loew passed away peacefully early in the morning on January 2, 2019 at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, WA with family and friends close by. She joins her husband in Spirit World, Nathan Loew, who passed earlier in 2018.
Debbie was born in Seattle but lived most of her young life in Yakima and Selah, WA. From middle school till she graduated high school she lived on a ranch with a small farm. She often reminisced on how she learned the value of hard work and living in nature from her years working on the farm with her family.
After graduating from Selah High as Salutatorian, Debbie went on to university, searching for her role in making the world a better place. While attending Laramie WY University, she met and joined the Unification Church, where she found an answer to her searching.
Married in the Holy Blessing at Madison Square Garden in New York City on July 1, 1982 to Nathan Loew, the new couple had their first two children in Seattle before being called to Virginia, where their youngest two were born. As her young children grew up, she ran a daycare, supported her husband in several deli and flower businesses, and enjoyed time with friends and family. In addition to supporting her family, she continued mission work wherever she lived as well as on trips to Russia and Korea. From 1997 to 1999 she and her husband moved the whole family to Ireland to continue mission work.
Debbie eventually decided teaching was her calling and enjoyed many years as a teacher at both a public and a private school in Northern Virginia, investing her time and whole heart into each student.
Debbie lived a life full of love, and dedicated her time to acts of kindness, especially to friends and family. She also loved the church community and spent many years teaching Sunday School and volunteering.
Debbie will be forever remembered by her four children, Young-il Eli, Yoshi, Gene, and Virginia Rose, and their eight grandkids, her sister, parents, and numerous close friends that experienced her love and kindness first hand.
