She loved traveling to North Carolina with George to visit George’s family.  She had close ties to George’s sisters and brothers. She also loved going to Nagshead and Outterbanx, her favorite ocean beaches.

Deborah owned and operated her beauty shop for forty years in Cherokee.  She did haircuts for women, men, small children, teenagers and young couples.  She did hair for weddings and other events.  She just loved people.

Deborah had many uncles, aunts, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, cousins, nephews, and nieces.
