Deborah “Debbie” Greene passed away on December 15, 2020 at her home in Hoboken, NJ, after a long battle with cancer. Known affectionately to all as “Aunt Debbie”, she embodied generosity and strength, ensuring that everyone in her life was well taken care of.

Born on July 11, 1951, Debbie was a lifelong Hoboken resident who from the age of 13 began working in the restaurant industry. Her commitment to delivering exceptional service showed through her almost 30 year career at Dino & Harrys restaurant (fka Frankie & Johnnies). There, she would come to touch the lives of all she encountered, leaving behind a legacy of warmth and compassion. 

Debbie’s pride and joy were her nieces Leyla and Nicole. She would often be seen taking Leyla for ice cream, a befitting reward for her loyal best friend.

She is survived by her nieces, nephews, members of her extended family, and a countless number of friends. 

The Funeral Mass will be offered on Monday, December 21, 2020, 10AM at St. Francis RC Church, Hoboken. In lieu of flowers, the family invites you make contributions to a charity of your own choice.
