Debbie grew up in Houlton and attended local schools. She raised her family and worked for area farms. Debbie enjoyed doing crafts and coloring.

She was a free spirited, fun loving person with a huge loving, caring heart but she could be stubborn at times. She loved the name "Little Debbie" because she was sweet like a "Little Debbie" snack.
