Debi Austin passed away earlier this morning
A short while ago I was informed that Debi Austin passed away earlier this morning.
Debi was a guardian angel for Orange County and came down here many times, over the years, to help with our efforts to teach tobacco use prevention.
Some say, “Her Public Service Announcements were perhaps the most effective PSA’s ever made.” Debi has often been credited with helping more people to stop smoking, and countless others from ever starting, than few other advocates.
While Debi will be missed by so many people who loved her, her presence will always be felt in this arena that meant so much to her.
