She was born on July 5, 1954 in Port Washington; daughter of Leonard and Ella Last Didier. A lifelong resident of the City, Debbie graduated from Port Washington High School. She would work a variety of jobs throughout her life, but most important was the loving care she provided for her dear arents. Since their deaths, Debbie had worked at the Harbor Campus and in other caregiving roles. More often than not, Debbie could be found at the Port Washington Senior Center where she has been a member and volunteer for many years. She has enjoyed many events and the friendships they bring. She will be remembered for her many deeds and actions of kindness over the years to friends and strangers alike.
Debbie spent her quiet time writing poetry and short stories. She enjoyed nature and photography, taking her camera everywhere. Recently she missed going to the movies, but relished the old ones on TV. She also missed her lunches with friends but participated through the senior center to remain social this past year. Ceramics were another hobby she enjoyed. Debbie would assist new comers to the craft and had shown her work in Ceramics, Photography, and Poetry at the Ozaukee County Fair.
In the past, Debbie was a Sunday school teacher. She even traveled to Australia to meet a pen pal. She also enjoyed traveling with her parents around the US.
