Deborah attended Detroit Public Schools and graduated from Cass Technical High School. After graduation from high school, she enlisted in the United States Army—the Women’s Army Corporation (WAC’S).

Deborah loved music so much that she became the Choir Director of the Voices of Inspiration. She was also a member of the Goodwill Musical Youth Union under Pastor Carol Hayes. Deborah loved reading, board games and was a great seamstress; but her passion was cooking. Having learned from her mom, Sister Mary Helen Dale, she was a “cook extraordinaire.” She served up many delicious meals for her family and church members on holidays throughout the year. She will be remembered most for her Macaroni & Cheese and delicious cakes. Deborah once made this statement about her cooking, “I want my food to look good, smell good and taste good.” MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! Education was important to Deborah.
