Debra Bartow Obituary

Debra (Hudnall) Bartow, 65, of Norwalk passed away peacefully January 17, 2024, surrounded by loved ones.

Born on July 22, 1958, in Cleveland, Ohio, the daughter of Robert and Bonnie (Ray) Hudnall. She grew up in Marblehead, Ohio, graduating from Danbury High School in 1977.

She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, sister, and grandmother. Debi loved everything from cooking for her big family, friends, and coworkers, capturing family moments with her camera, operating a bingo game for Norwalk Catholic Schools, and enjoying the company of her grandchildren.

Over the years, she enjoyed going on cruises, creating great memories with her friends, sharing her funny moments with her husband Tom, and as he would say, “taking any chance she had to sit in front of a slot machine”.

She was also an avid Cleveland, Ohio State, and Norwalk St. Paul sports fan.

Debi is survived by her husband Tom Bartow and their five children, Deanne, Robert, Preston, Tommy, and Michael (Emma) Bartow; her five grandchildren, Lilian, Elissa, Laila, Donovan, and Preston Jr.; and her siblings Michael Sforzo, Sandra (Daniel) Hudnall-Fillmore, and Robin (Nikki) Hudnall-Lloyd.

She was preceded in death by her parents Robert and Bonnie “Mama”.

Funeral services will be held Wednesday morning, January 24th at 10 AM at the funeral home. Rev Ken Oswald officiating.  She will be laid to rest at the Perkins Cemetery in Sandusky.

The Bartow family would like to thank Suncrest Hospice for their comforting and loving care. They would also like to thank Dr. James Kaufman, Dr. Raj Signh, and their staff at the James Cancer Center.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made towards the Suncrest Cares Foundation, and The Ohio State University James Cancer Center, The OSUCCC-James, 460 W. 10th Ave, Columbus, OH 43210.
