We are sad to let you know that our sister, Deborah Parr Emery, passed away from staph pneumonia on April 20, 2013, in San Luis Obispo, CA. She had not been in good health for many years due to complications of knee replacements and had suffered repeated bouts of pneumonia. In spite of all that, she had become a psychiatric nurse practitioner as her second career. She was employed with the California Men’s Colony in Atascadero, CA, and she specialized in working with prisoners recovering from drug and alcohol addiction.
