Debbie Lassor passed away peacefully the morning of Friday, May 18th at her residence in Mi Wuk Village, CA due to cancer. She was born May 11, 1960 in Alameda, CA to Jim and Barbara Rowney. Debbie married her soul mate, Ray Lassor in 1991. She had 2 children, Sara Westfall and Danny Westfall, by a previous marriage and welcomed two more, Jason & Justin Lassor when she married Ray. Debbie loved to love on people. She sought to instill in her children and grandchildren a zest for life, a commitment to family & friends, and the power of a smile. She is survived by her husband of 27 years, Ray Lassor, mother Barbara Rowney, daughter Sara Westfall, son Dnny Westfall and wife Ashley, son Jason Lassor, son Justin Lassor and wife Nessa, grandchildren Layla Tarantino, Lucas and Hailey Lassor. She also leaved behind her brothers, Mike Rowney and wife Joann, Scott Rowney and wife Jen, and Matt Rowney and wife Cheryl plus many nephews, nieces aunts and uncles. She was preceded in death by her father, Jim Rowney, grandparents James and Nancy Rowney, and Charles and Frances Mowbray. Debbie was inspiring, giving, selfless, caring, wise and most of all, our hero. Her hands were rarely still. They held her sewing needles, wooden spoons and her grandchildren. One of Debbie’s passions was to take long trips on motorcycles with her husband Ray and great friends Steve and June Smith. Debbie loved to cook. She was known for her potato salad and chicken enchiladas, recipes she wouldn’t share. She sewed, she loved to go glamping and travel to visit with family. She grew up swimming from the age of 2 and became a member of the Alameda Swim Team and the Encinal High School Team. She carried on her love of swimming by teaching her children and grandchildren. Terzich and Wilson Funeral Home are handling the arrangements.
