Deborah Bay

April 1, 1952 — December 7, 2022

Deborah Bay, beloved daughter of the late Charles and Nell Bay. Deb worked as a picture framer for a downtown company for many years until she began working for Ray Hils at Ben Franklin Crafts in the late 80's.  When the store closed, she moved with the framing to Keepsake Framing and continued to work part time for Barbara Hils until 2010.  Her full-time job was with Bushelman Supply, with whom she had a 33 year career and an instant family.  They will dearly miss her around the office. Her whole life, Deb was huge advocate for ANY cat and their plight in the world. She teamed up with several cat rescues through the years and worked tirelessly to aid homeless and feral cats. All cats were her family - brother, sister, child, friend.  She will be interred under a tree with the ashes of her entire cat family. A memorial gathering will be held on Tuesday, December 20, 2022, at Hodapp Funeral Home 7401 Vine St. Cincinnati, OH 45216 from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. Memorial donations may be made to the Hartt Animal Rescue.
