   Debbie graduated from Catholic Central High School in 1973. She went on to cosmetology school and worked as a hairdresser. In 1975, she married Steven Gamelin and had three children. While raising their children, Debbie was a stay-at-home mom. She was later employed by Ansul, retiring in 2016.  She found great joy in traveling on the motorcycle with her husband, playing cards, bowling and fishing with her family. Debbie always looked forward to watching “fooseball” as well as basking in the summer’s sun.
