Debra Jean Kaderabek-Walter, 69, passed away in her Bowie home on October 30,
2022, surrounded by her family.
Debby was born on February 7, 1953 in Takoma Park to Kathleen (Reedy) and Eugene
Debby is survived by her devoted husband of 42 years James, her four children,
Jessica Homa (Scott), Jonathan Walter (Maureen), Adam Walter and Eric Walter, as
well as her siblings, Karen Colbert (Kevin), Gregg Kaderabek (Kathy), Jean Oliver
(Paul), Laura Adams (Bob) and Tina McMorland (Tim). She will be dearly missed by
her eight grandchildren (with another due in December!) and her many nieces,
nephews and relatives in the Kaderabek and Walter families.
Debby lived what she believed. Her Catholic faith provided a solid foundation for her
life where she was deeply committed to her life as a loving wife and mother, devoted
sister, loyal friend and doting “Grammy”. She attended daily Mass at Ascension or
Sacred Heart parishes.
She attended Duval High School, Prince George’s Community College and graduated
Cum Laude from the University of Maryland, College Park.
As a certified Medical Technologist, Debby was a dedicated laboratory worker at Prince
George’s Hospital, Washington Hospital Center and Bowie Health Center.
Debby loved cooking and was perpetually experimenting with recipes, preparing
delicious, healthy dishes. All were greeted at the entrance to her home with the efforts
of her gardening prowess, glorious blooms and shrubs lovingly planted and tended.
James met Debby in 1975 while working in the lab together and they married in 1980.
During their life-long marriage, they chose to spend an inordinate amount of time with
one another. Their mutual love of disco dancing was a frequent pastime during the
early years of their relationship. Debby was an avid athlete and the two played tennis,
softball and golf together. Raising their family, they spent summers vacationing at
Camp Maria and the Outer Banks. In recent years, any free time was spent with their
Debby was James’ soulmate, best friend, wife, lover, teammate and “disco queen”. He
feels their union was one that everyone desires, but few are fortunate enough to
experience. James could not have asked for any more in this life.
