If you’re anything like us, the minute Halloween rolls around every year, we whip out both Hocus Pocus AND the Halloweentown movies and binge watch them until our TV breaks.
“What do you say about a woman who had such an impact on your life both professionally and personally?” Kim, who plays Marnie, starts in her tribute on her Facebook. “Debbie lived her life like all of us should, to the fullest. She was bold, funny, and had the biggest heart.”

“Her sparkly smile warmed every room she was in, and her jokes about her amazing career and life would make your stomach hurt with laughter.”
“Making people happy through her performing was her favorite thing to do, and she showed me at a young age what a gift it is to be able to do that for people. She was so talented and wise, which easily could have gone to her head, but instead she went out of her way to help others shine as brightly as they could. She’d try to move huge ladders on set just to help the crew, and looked out for every actor no matter the size their role. Her humility, grace, and care for others inspired me so much as a teen and is something that will always stay with me.”
Kim adds, “‘Being normal is vastly overrated’ is a quote from Halloweentown, and how fitting it is that her character spoke it. Her generosity, talent, and loving spirit made her anything but normal. Thanks for the magic, Debbie. Rest in peace.”
Kimberly played Marnie in the first three Halloweentown films with Debbie, before Sara Paxton took over the role for the final installment.
