Debra ‘Debi’ Bradford

KURE BEACH — Debra “Debi” Bradford, 67, passed away Tuesday, May 4, 2021, from a ruptured brain aneurysm.

She was a loving wife, an adoring mother and devoted daughter. Debi never met a stranger and will truly be missed by all who knew and loved her. As a master gardener and an accomplished photographer, she often meshed two of her passions by taking pictures of beach sunsets, mountain ranges, and her beloved Scotland; where she would hope to catch a glimpse of her favorite Outlander character, Jamie Fraser. She loved the outdoors, and, in particular, found a love for the rescue of sea turtles, and volunteered with her master gardener club in Wilmington.

Debi is survived by her husband, Bob Bradford; mother, Betty Benson Drake; and daughters, Kayla, Jessica, Shannon and Kim; along with 10 grandkids and great-grandkids.

Her friends and family will celebrate her life, in Kure Beach on a date to be determined.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Debi’s name to the American Stroke Association, Rheumatoid Arthritis Foundation or any animal rescue.
