Debra Jo Strazzella

Newark - On January 6, 2021, Debra Jo Strazzella passed away peacefully at home with her family.
Debra was born on November 22, 1954 to the late Joann Pierson and John Parks. She grew up in the Newark, Delaware suburbs but spent a considerable amount of time with her Pierson family cousins, aunts and uncles around the Landenberg, PA area.

After graduating from Christiana High School, she attended the Shilling-Douglas School of Hair where she trained to be a Barber. Deb was one of a small group of female barbers in the area and worked at many shops and Salons over the years. She eventually accepted a position in the Collections Department of the newly arrived to Delaware, MNC Bank. After the Bank's transition to MBNA, Deb worked in a variety of positions throughout her career rising to be an Assistant Vice President before her retirement. Deb was very proud of being a part of MBNA and she helped many people join the bank. She had the honorable designation of being a MBNA Founder (one of the first 200 People of the Bank).

Deb entertained everyone, she loved to listen to music, shop, dress up and she always looked impeccable. She was very attached to her pets over the years and Ginger, Foxy, Cha-Cha and Brutus were her favorites.

Deb is survived by her children Kevin, Paul and Breigh (Jeff), her husband Richard and her two beloved Grandsons, Gavin Richard Strazzella and Brice Richard Vaneiken. Deb is also survived by her brother, Joe Dolor (Carol), niece Jenna and nephew Michael.

A more inclusive Celebration of her life will be planned when it is safe to do so.

I think of all of the wonderful times in Sea Isle and Avalon with Rich and Deb and John and Joyce. Deb had a big impact on my life - she helped me get my first job at “the firm” which shaped my entire working career. Rest your soul, dear Lady! Peace to the kids and Rich. Your mom made a big impact!
