Debora Deppe

Debora Deppe, 62, of Maquoketa, passed away in her home on Tuesday, Feb 11, 2020.

The family is granting her wishes of a private service. Lahey and Dawson Funeral Services is caring for her family at this time.

Debora Lynne was born on July 9, 1957, to Tom and Florence (Dobrolecki) Smith in Larkspur, California. She married Larry Deppe on Sept. 5, 1981, in Schereville, Indiana. She worked at Midwest Pipe Coating for 15 years and was most recently the PMW accounting manager before retirement.

Crocheting, canning, and baking cookies that she shared with the community were some of the things Debora enjoyed, but most of all she loved spending quality time with her friends and family, especially her grandchildren. She always put others before herself.

She is survived by her husband, Larry; children Nichole (Matthew) Notz of Maquoketa and Michelle (Megan Hanson) Deppe of Springfield, Missouri; three grandchildren, Bradyn, Asher and Calvin Notz; and many sisters-in-law and brothers-in law who were very important to her.

She is preceded in death by her parents.

Memorials may be directed to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital in her honor.
