Over the years, Debby successfully operated several small businesses. She was best known as the proprietress of the Village Flower Shoppe and for her beautiful and creative floral designs.

Deciding to pursue work in her field, Debby began her career as an auditor with the U.S. Government, working for the Internal Revenue Service. From there, she moved to the Dept. of Homeland Security where she spent the bulk of her career, holding several different positions within the Regulatory Audit Department. Her work took her all over the country where she made many lifetime friends.
Debby had an amazing voice and used the gift God gave her by sharing it for decades in service to the Warsaw Christian Church Choir. She was often asked to sing at special events, which she was humbled and honored to do. One of her greatest pleasures was singing with the Community Choir.
Those who knew Debby will tell you she never met a stranger. She had an innate gift for making people feel welcome. Debby lived her life to the fullest. Her greatest gift was her generosity with her time, her love, her kindness, her compassion and her resources.
