Debra Dale Frenia, 70, of Virginia Beach, Virginia ascended home to heaven on Saturday, June 17, 2023, at Sentara Leigh Hospital in Norfolk, Virginia.

Debra was born on January 6, 1953, to William Potvin, Jr. and Edith Potvin in Lowell, Massachusetts. She moved to Virginia Beach in 1973 and attended cosmetology school.

She enjoyed knitting and was active in local knitting groups.

She is survived by her loving husband Martie; children: Cheryl Decker, Holly (Andrew) Miller, and Taylor (Leia) Frenia; grandchildren: Aiden Miller, Kade Miller, and Bryson Frenia; and siblings: Bill Potvin and Sandy Potvin, as well as her massive stash of yarn.
