Passing of Senior Citizens Coordinator

Deborah “Deb” Scholl-Saulnier, age 59, of Canal Winchester, died Monday, March 23, 2020 in Pinellas Park, Florida. Born October 7, 1960 in Columbus, she was a 1978 graduate of Groveport-Madison High School. At the time of her passing, she was employed by the City of Groveport and served as the Senior Citizens Coordinator at Groveport Senior Center. 

Deb was an intelligent, strong, caring, giving, funny & loving person. She was a great friend to many. She served so many seniors in her time with the City of Groveport and Canal Winchester. "Over the years, I personally saw how hundreds of our seniors treated Deb like she was one of their own. Deb also treated all of them like family as well", noted Kyle Lund (Recreation Director). Deb was also an avid softball player and fan. She will be greatly missed.

She is survived by her husband of 23 years, Charles Saulnier; daughter, Allison Saulnier; mother, Nancy (Jeff) Lee, Reynoldsburg; sisters, Brenda (Ben) Corbin, Pickerington, and Deana Dillon, Reynoldsburg; nephews, Chris Parker, Cody Kingera, and Jake Kingera; aunts, uncles, and cousins.
