Raised in Temperance, Michigan, Debbie was a country girl through and through. She had a very strong love for animals, nature and exploring. While raising her son she also raised many dogs and cats as well as ferrets and even a skunk and a raccoon. In more recent years, Debbie found a new freedom. Every chance she had, she would be off exploring state parks and museums. In her down time she loved to read, make crafts, and take care of her furry family members; dogs, Moose and Goose, and her cats Bitty and Delilah. She especially enjoyed spending time and sharing her hobbies with her grandsons and other family.
