It is with great sadness that we, the family announce the sudden death of our mother, Debby Ann Hartigan-Walker on Wednesday, February 9, 2022, at home.
Born May 31, 1954, in Sydney, Debby was the eldest daughter of the late Patrick and Ann (Campbell) Hartigan.
Debby is survived by her daughters, Stephanie Hartigan (Shane) and Jamie Guthrie (Jamie); sisters, Patsy MacDonald (Peter), Dartmouth, Evelyn Hartigan (Kevin), Sydney, and Leona Campbell (Sheldon), Sydney; grandchildren, Sasha (Matt), Allison (Brett), Cameron (Jennifer), Cori, Sara, Alyssa, Emma and one great-grandson, Xavier. Debby is also survived by her nephews and nieces, David, Matthew (Kelsey), Michelle (Shaun), Caitlyn (Adam), Melissa (Kyle), Amanda (Nick), and her great-nieces and great-nephews, Taylor, Isabella, Nora, Aiden and Kayden. She also leaves behind her beloved little dog, Skippy, who was always at her side.
Besides her parents, Debby was predeceased by her husband, Dave Walker.
Many of Debby’s younger years were spent working and living in Ontario. When her and Dave found each other, they spent many years travelling while moving goods throughout North America, which she enjoyed.
Cremation has taken place. In keeping with Debby’s wishes a family service will be held at a later date.
Donations in memory of Debby may be made to the Cape Breton Branch, SPCA.
Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.

I was saddened to hear of Debbie’s death. I attended Holy Angels High School with Debbie and we graduated together. I remember her infectious laugh and awesome smile. My only regret is that I did not keep in touch with her. Well Debbie has not passed away, she has passed through the gates of Heaven where she is safely in the arms of her Beloved God. I will pray for Peace on her life in Eternity.
Rest In Peace my Friend.
Blessings and Prayers,
