Debra May Johnson, 60, of Willimantic and formerly of Colchester, passed away peacefully Sunday, April 30, 2017. Born March 3, 1957 in Morgantown, WV, she was the daughter of the late Rose Marie Johnson. Debra leaves her beloved of 18 years, Wilfrid Soucy, as well as his family. Deb grew up in Florida and graduated from North Miami High and had worked for Publix for 15 years. In 2004, she and Wilfrid moved to Kentucky for nearly 10 years and returned to Connecticut, settling at Ponemah Village in Colchester. In 2015, the couple purchased a new home in Willimantic, where she loved to sit out on the big red porch and enjoyed watching the birds and their dog, Izzy, run around the yard. Debra was an Elvis fan, doing word puzzles and going out to the movies. She also felt very blessed to have been welcomed so warmly by Wilfrid’s large extended family and treated like one of their own.
