    Obituary Debora L. Torticill, 64, of Richmond, California, passed away October 18, 2015 at Westmont Healthcare Community in Logan, Iowa, following a courageous battle with cancer.

    A mass of Christian burial will be held 11:00 A.M. Friday, October 23, 2015 at St. John's Catholic Church in Onawa, Iowa, with Father Patrick O'Kane, Celebrant, officiating. Burial will follow in the Onawa Cemetery.

    Debora Lee was born November 4, 1950 in Onawa, the daughter of William Edward and Rosalie Ruth (Irish) Torticill. She grew up in Onawa and graduated from West Monona High School in 1968. She then attended Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, where she majored in accounting and achieved a Bachelor's in Business. She passed the CPA exam the first time she took it, which was a great accomplishment.

    Following graduation, Debora moved to California, where she has resided for the past thirty-two years. She made her career as a CPA for the State of California and as the Senior Auditor for the County of Alameda.

    Education was of the utmost importance to Debora, as were the arts. She was gifted in drawing, painting with watercolors, and playing the flute, among many things. She loved flowers and everything about the outdoors, especially the mountains that she was able to see outside of her front door in California.

    Above all, Debora's greatest joy was her children, and spending time with them was her top priority. She enjoyed attending their activities and was able to establish many friendships with other parents in this way.

    Debora's faith was important to her, and she enjoyed spending every weekend with her children at St. Callista's Catholic Church in El Sobronte, California.

    Survivors include her children, Ethan, Rosalie, and Kai Torticill, all of Richmond, CA; her mother, Rosalie Torticill of Onawa, IA; six siblings, Diann Writer of Vallejo, CA, Dennis Torticill of Kyle, TX, Dannette (Mark) Eveloff of Council Bluffs, IA, Denise (Steve) Struble of Logan, IA, Doreen (Kevin) Heisterkamp of Early, IA, and David Torticill of Onawa, IA; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and good friends.

    She was preceded in death by her father, Bill Torticill; sister, Missy Torticill; and brother, Delane Torticill.
