Debbie Fimbel

With great sorrow, I have to report that Archaeological Society of New Jersey member and friend to New Jersey Archaeology, retired SHPO archaeologist Debbie Fimbel passed away suddenly on Nov. 1. She was a lovely and kind person with a twinkle in her eye but who was passionate about protecting NJ's archaeological sites.
