Later, when I was the guitar teacher at Camp Ramah, Ojat in 1991, she came for a day and gave the whole camp a concert, along with Craig Taubman. She allowed me to photocopy a few of her songs, but I've lost those. (too bad) I don't think that she recognized her, she was already in a wheelchair, and I cried to see her like that, but she was still full of energy and life.
She was in the middle of a great controversy in the Reform Movement of Judaism. She wrote new melodies for the liturgy, and the adults still wanted to sing the old melodies to the prayers. This was at the same time that Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach was doing the same thing for the Orhtodox. So we kids had our own services and sang Debbie's melodies and one of them Em Tirzu was adopted as the anthem for the 1970's to get the Soviet Jews out of Russia, for our synagogue.
We still have her recordings and songbooks, so we have what to remember her by.
I feel that maybe God caller her home to sing to the angels. Maybe the angels need to learn a few new melodies
