Debra Lyne McCaslin, 65, a resident of Cape Coral, FL since 2001, formerly of St. Leonard, MD, passed away Friday, April 23, 2021 in Cape Coral. She was born August 7, 1955 in Cheverly, MD to Harold and Loretta Redmond, now deceased.

Debra was of the Christian faith. She was a licensed hair dresser for nineteen years, and once managed a salon called Campus Cuts at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. She was a loving wife, a best friend and devoted companion through twenty-eight years of marriage with her husband Ray McCaslin. Her children will remember her as a mother who they could talk to about anything, who had the kindest giving heart. A woman who was a mother to others who were not her own. Being a mother and grandmother was her entire life and she wouldn’t have traded it for anything. Debra had many friends and enjoyed being around people. She loved connecting with people on Facebook. She was also an animal lover who enjoyed caring for her pets and had a large variety of pets that included everything from dogs, a cat, monkeys, pet rats and birds. She will be sorely missed by many.

She is survived by her beloved husband, Ray McCaslin of Cape Coral; two loving children, Kristy Tester (Zak) of Tazwell, VA, and Brandon McCaslin (Sierra) of Murfreesboro, TN; brother, Mark Redmond of VA; as well as seven grandchildren.

Debra was preceded in death by a son, Daniel Jones in 1994.

    Baby Girl, It hasn’t yet been a week since you left me to be with God, and I already miss you so much it’s unbearable. Nothing will ever be the same without you. You are irreplaceable. We will be together again someday. The photo I am posting is the photo you recently put in your Facebook profile that shows how great our love IS for each other.

    I loved you from the beginning, and will always love you Honey.
