Memories and Condolences

Mrs. Lacktman was a kind and loving person. She was the best English teacher I ever had at Baldi Middle School. I always went back to the middle school to see her when she was still living. When I came back to visit one day, I've heard from other teachers that she has died from cancer, I was crushed and sad that my favorite teacher has passed away from cancer. She is forever in my heart.
Debbie and I were good friends as we grew up in the same neighborhood at Deveraux and Bustleton. She is in the childhood videos my parents made. I haven't seen her since our youth but never forgot her. Wish we had stayed in touch but glad to hear of her success in her teaching profession and being surrounded by a loving family.
I will never forget Debbie's smiling face, infectious laugh, and warm personality. Debbie exuded joy and positivity no matter what hardships she faced. Her students loved her, her colleagues loved her, and she was an absolute pleasure to work with. I will miss her dearly. I will remember and hear her laughter everyday as I walk through the halls of Baldi, especially when I pass her classroom. Deepest sympathy and prayers to Debbie's dear family.
That smile, that laugh, that beautiful heart: we are all richer for knowing Debbie. I taught with Debbie in her first assignment at St. Martin of Tours School in Oxford Circle... we had 6 classes of every grade...Debbie knew everyone and everyone loved her..... may all those wonderful memories those of us who knew her give comfort to the family she loved so much.
Debbie was a wonderful teacher, friend, wife and mother. Whenever she came into the office at Harding Middle School it always had a warm glow. I loved that the two of us had the same dress and without planning we would ultimately wear it on the same day. She brought warmth, friendship and love to whomever she met. She was an amazing and caring teacher/friend. We all loved her and will miss her. RIP dear Debbie.
Debbie had a smile for everyone & great laugh. She laughed at all of my antics & jokes even when Marty would, in good nature, say don't encourage him & Deb then would laugh even more. She knew how to have fun & dance. Our crowd was together for decades & she will truly be missed but somehow we know & feel she is still in the middle of all the festivities. Debbie was the best of the bunch.
I was saddened to hear of Debbie’s passing. I wish to extend to you our deepest condolences. Beth and Dennis Stoner
