GREENE — Debbie R. Hannigan of Greene passed away peacefully on April 21, at home after a courageous battle with cancer.
She was born Oct. 9, 1956, to Delmar and Betty Sewell.
She enjoyed going to Oxford Plains Speedway and working with Mike on her sons race car. She also enjoyed camping with family and friends, knitting hats and mittens for kids and taking an annual trip to a NASCAR race, taking her as far away as Talladega, Ala., and all points in between.
She worked at home sewing and at Eastland Shoe Co. Her true passion was helping build their business, JDM also known as Hannigan’s Garage, from the ground up in 1999.
She survived by her husband and best friend, Michael Hannigan; her son, Jason and girl friend, Carrie H. McCoy; three daughters, Brittney, Aylison and Jayla (who so fondly called her grammie;) three brothers, Delmar, Dennis and Darren; three sisters, Darlene Botting, Tina Porter and Lori Watton.
