Deborah Susan Tiene, loving wife, mother and grandmother, (1956-2021), died peacefully in her home, under home hospice care of Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice on March 16, 2021 in only her 64th year after combatting metastatic breast cancer for over fifteen years.
Born in Upper Darby Township, Pennsylvania to Walter and Irene Fraser (Dithomas), Debbie spent her childhood in the Township of Washington, NJ.
She is survived by her mother Irene, brother Walter James, husband Michael, sons Scott, Danny, and Micky, their respective spouses Patricia, Rachel, and Kathryn and her lovely grandchildren Nora Susan Fraser and Walter Winfield Fraser.
A graduate of New York University, Deborah earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing in 1978. While working as a Customer Support Specialist at Global Turnkey Systems, she met Michael, her husband of 35 years.
They would go on to move into a little house in Highland Lakes, NJ to start their family. A caring, wonderful mother to three sons: first Scott, then Danny and Micky would go on to reenter the workforce in 1997. Deborah worked tirelessly for ADP, first in payroll then insurance; all the while being promoted to multiple levels of management and upper management before retiring after 20 years to focus on her health and happiness.
Having successfully raised her children, Debbie welcomed her first grandchild, Nora, to the family in 2013 with Nora’s brother, Walter, to join us in 2017.
After retirement, Deborah sought to travel and spend as much time with her family and grandchildren as possible. Whether it was summiting the Haleakala volcano in Maui or peering over the edge of the Grand Canyon, Debbie made sure to fill her life with adventure. But she always preferred the crisp breezes and warm sunshine of Maine’s beaches in the summer.
A Memorial Service is to be held at Ferguson Funeral Home in Vernon, NJ on Sunday March 21 from 1pm to 3pm. Memorial donations may be made to the Karen Ann Quinlan Memorial Foundation 99 Sparta Avenue Newton, NJ 07860.

I was so lucky to have met and became friends with Debbie through my time working with her at ADP. She was generous, kind and fun. We shared mutual interests in cultural things. Debbie was the first person I told about a dream I had where I opened my hotel window and saw the Eiffel Tower. She said “you can do it!” and I did for my 30th birthday. She was a very easy friend to talk to – about the important things in life, like family. We had great fun at the Met Opera and enjoyed seeing Vanessa Redgrave in “The Year of Magical Thinking” – a play based on Joan Didion’s book about love and lost, an author whom Debbie also liked. Debbie was the kind of friend that one hopes to find in life and I’m truly thankful to have met her. I miss her dearly and will always cherish the memories we shared. Debbie loved her family above all and I’m truly sorry for your lost. She was truly magical.

Debbie meant so much to so many people. She touched me in such a special she always had kind words of encouragement and hands down one of the best friends in my life. Debbie was always overly kind to my daughter Bianca even before she was born she would talk to my belly just to get her to move, I will forever cherish our friendship. This is a huge loss sending my love to her family and friends as this is a tough pill to swallow.
