Deborah Jean (Boule) Inlow, 53, of East Hampton, beloved wife of Raymond Inlow passed away Tuesday Dec. 14th at her home. Born Feb. 13, 1968 in Derby, CT, she is the daughter of Diane (Lee) Turner and the late James Boule. Deborah was a 1986 graduate of East Hampton High School and was a lifelong resident of East Hampton.
Besides her beloved husband Raymond, Deborah, is survived by her mother Diane Turner of East Hampton, her step mother Joan Boule of FL, her two loving sons Joseph and Christopher Inlow, her sister Allison Dillon and husband Kyle of East Hampton, brother Darren Boule and wife Allison of FL, nieces and nephews Robert Dickinson and wife Michelle, Sara Moyles, Liam Dillon, Olivia Dillon, Owen Boule, Austin Boule, great nieces Arya and Ava Dickinson, and many other aunts, uncles, cousins, and in-laws.
Deborah (Deb, Debbie) completed her cosmetology license right after high school graduation and led a career of 33 years as a hairdresser. Through hard work and compassion she gained her own clientele whom she truly cared for and developed close relationships with each and every one of them.
Deb’s pride and joy in life was her family. She absolutely adored her two sons and husband - her everyday life revolved around them, always giving love and caring for their needs. Debbie had an unbreakable bond with her sister, was a super aunt to her nieces and nephews, and always gave unconditional love along with endearing words of encouragement to both family and friends. One of Deb’s enjoyments was to decorate for every season, always creating a warm and welcome feeling that invited you joyfully into the Inlow’s family home. She loved to gather at her home with family and friends and gave us many memories of laughter and happiness. Sundays will be a day of remembering Deb. She enjoyed the morning hours baking a delicious goody to share; her famous spice cake will undoubtedly be missed. Another traditional family favorite was her Polish Kapusta, a yearly Easter time treat - always making extras and special deliveries to her few selected lucky ones. Deb had the amazing trait of being an animal whisper. For years wild mallard ducks returned to nest in her backyard and ate cracked corn from her hand - a true delight for Deb. Her household pets were truly spoiled with her love and they had the honor to enjoy her company for many years. Debbie’s heart was bigger than life itself - quiet and reserved; she always seemed to know the right words to say, able to give comfort, and she would reflect on the good in life.
Deb was a private person who took on life as a fearless determined warrior. She had a witty sense of humor and was able to make anyone who was in her company laugh, never embarrassing anyone - just a true giggle that could brighten your day. Her “one liners” and the ability to say the “right thing” will live on in all our memories. Debbie had the gift to enjoy the simple things in life, was able to take in a moment, never took anything for granted, and was content with a full heart.
Trustworthy, wise, sweet, loving, and genuine, are words that defined Deb’s personality. Deborah was one-of-a-kind and will be deeply missed by the ones who had the honor of truly knowing and loving her. As the journey of life continues, her love will continue to shine in the ones she adored the most as they continue to perpetuate the love in which Deborah emanated each and every day of her beautiful life.
Funeral services will be held on January 8, 2022 at 10:00 am at St. Patrick Church in East Hampton.
