Debra Ann Tafil, 66

Debra Ann Tafil, 66, of Byron Center went to be with the Lord on Jan. 28, 2020, at home under the loving care of her family and Emmanuel Hospice.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Frank Tafil; mother, Betty Wendt; great-grandmother, who helped raise her, Dorothy Aiken; and great-grandson, Sylas.
