She was a Cosmetologist in Worthington for over 35 years at Regis Hairstyling, Cutting Corner, and Hairstyling on Main. After retiring from hairstyling, Deb’s passion for children led her to drive school bus for special needs children. She loved her “kids” and enjoyed seeing them each and every day. She was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church and was in the church choir and a song leader. Deb enjoyed crossword puzzles, crafting, woodworking, gardening, and had a special relationship with her nieces, nephews, and cousins.
