On Tuesday, November 6, 2018, Debbie Romero passed away at the age of 65.
Debbie was born on September 26, 1953, in Merced, CA to Corrine O’Neill.
She was a loving wife to Mel Lerma Sr. and beloved mother to her seven children; Mel Lerma Jr. (Cassandra), Melissa Hurtado, Gracie De La Riva (Adrian), Melanie Valdez, Richard Valdez, Melissa Buzo (James), and Christina Manzo (Travis).
Debbie loved all twenty of her grandchildren and both greatgrandchildren dearly. As well as her four sisters, cousins and numerous nieces and nephews.
Debbie loved finding great items for great prices, whether it be at thrift stores or her favorite store: Walmart. She could shop for hours and hours, only to bring home items for everyone but herself. Her infectious smile, endless compassion and wonderful sense of humor will be truly missed.
