Obituary of Debra R. “Debi” Brand

Debra Ruth (Papp) Brand, 68, of Tamarac, FL, entered Heaven’s glory on Monday, October 17, 2022. Born in Fort Lauderdale, she was the daughter of Peggie J. (Kennedy) and the late Nicholas R. Papp, of Tamarac, FL.


Debi had an amazingly big heart and giving nature. This was seen in her love of animals, especially cats; her volunteer involvement with many Christian ministries; and her simple willingness to help anyone who crossed her path. Debi’s compassion for others extended into her long career as a licensed practical nurse where she blended her great sense of humor with professional skill. She will be dearly missed.


In addition to her mother, Peggie, she is survived by two sons, Nicholas R. Stoeffler, of Myerstown, PA, and Stephen W., husband of Crissy (Keener) Stoeffler of Elizabethtown, PA; 7 grandchildren, Alex, Stephen, Caitlin, Landon, Lincoln, Jordan, and Kelvy; and sister, Cindy Halse of Pompano Beach, FL. She is also survived by numerous extended family members and friends. She was preceded in death by her father, Nicholas, and sister Mary Papp.
