Debra Matthias

December 28, 1955 — May 29, 2022


Debra Matthias, 66, of Perkasie passed away quietly on May 29, 2022. She was born on Dec. 28, 1955 to Madeline (Mathews) Matthias and the late John Matthias.

Debra is survived by her mother; brothers John Matthias and Richard Matthias; 4 nieces and nephews Katie, Kelly, Mark and Eric; 6 great nieces and nephews; Sadie, Avery, Olivia, Caleb, Dillon Callan; and many other loving family and friends.

Prior to her retirement in 2020, Deb had worked in the Pharmaceutical industry where she was involved with rebate processing and contract analysis for several companies including Rohrer, Pharmametrics and Ingerichain. Deb made many friends through her working career. She was a cheerful, fun loving person who was a pleasure to know.

Before her physical ability limited it, Deb loved to travel. She made many fun trips with friends. She had been to Cancun, Paris / Disney Europe and the Netherlands to name a few of the far away spots but also many other trips within the US.

Deb had a love for all things Disney. She visited Disney World many times and was the ultimate Disney trip planner. She especially enjoyed arranging special Disney experiences for the younger family members - breakfast with the characters, where to watch the parades, special passes, where to stay at the park, the best place to view the fireworks, on and on. She was also an avid Disney collector of figurines, trading pins, movies, dolls, wall art, and Christmas ornaments - oh so many ornaments!

While she decorated the house for most holidays, Christmas was always her favorite. Her Christmas trees were a work of art, taking her days to fully decorate. From year to year she would vary the theme between the various ornament collections that she had assembled over the years.

Deb was an advanced crafter. She found great joy in handmade cards for birthdays, anniversaries and holidays. She was a terrific seamstress making all sorts of items from full size clothing for family members to doll clothes for her extensive doll collection. She was also an accomplished quilter.

Deb's greatest joy was spending time with her nieces / nephews and their young children. She loved watching them play, swimming in the pool with them, attending their birthday parties and special events, baking them cookies and treats, playing games with them, and most of all showering them with gifts at Christmas time. She will be missed but always remembered.

Services were privately held.
