UNDERHILL - The beloved Deborah Towne, 50, died on Friday, July 27 after a brief, but difficult, battle with cancer. She was a fighter until the end.
Deb was born on February 3, 1971, in Brattleboro, to Mary and Clarence (Buzzy) Towne and grew up in Wilmington. She was a passionate mother and wife who always loved adventure and to find new places around the world surrounded by nature. She was a great asset to the financial and banking sector where she managed several banking branches. She was an avid skier, sailor, diver, and climber who challenged every circumstance in life and spread happiness amongst anyone who encountered her.
She is survived by her husband, Matias Miguez; son Andres Miguez; her mother, Mary Towne; her sister Kathy and her husband Travis Robinson; and many nephews and a niece.
