Deborah M. McKay, 64, of Braintree, a beloved long-time Patient Access Coordinator at Quincy Medical Center, passed away unexpectedly July 28, 2020. 

Deb was the devoted wife of 42 years to John E. McKay.  Loving mother of Lisa M. McKay and her spouse Jeanette R. Garcia of Swansea. Beloved sister of Linda A. Barraza of Milton, Doreen Fisher of Norwell, Jimmy Sturgeon of Brockton, Cecelia Abruzzese of Norwell, Andrea Johnson of Plympton, Clay Sturgeon of Brockton, and the late Mark and late Lawrence Sturgeon. Grandmother of six “Fur Babies.” She was preceded in death by her dear friend Diane McPherson, and is also survived by many friends, extended family and colleagues at Quincy Medical Center and Carney Hospital.

A daughter of the late Clarence and Cecelia (Remondi) Sturgeon, Deb grew up off of Adams St in Dorchester and was a 1974 graduate of Dorchester High School.  She and John were married in 1978 and settled in Braintree in 1990.

She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends and tending to the vegetable and flower gardens around her home. 

Those who knew Deb will remember her love for animals as well as her caring and selfless ways… she would always go out of her way to help others.
