Deborah Joyce Gill was born on January 11, 1962, in Breckenridge, to John and Joyce (Haug) Wanek. She attended school in Breckenridge and graduated from high school in 1980. Deb was a very hard worker and enjoyed working at multiple jobs at the same time. She was a waitress at several cafes, a clerk at Stop N Go for over 20 years, and most recently she was a production worker at Primewood.

Deb was an incredibly happy and positive person, and dedicated to whatever she did. She enjoyed going to the casino for Girls Night with her friends, reading, and gardening. She was a huge animal lover, especially her cats and dogs. She spent as much time as she could with her grandchildren and at family gatherings.

Deb is survived by her father, John (Sue) Wanek, of Breckenridge; her children: Sherry (Dan) Schmit, of Wahpeton, and Josh Gill, of Moorhead; her siblings: Dave (Gail) Wanek, of Breckenridge, Don Wanek, of Texas, and Barb (Tom Taffe) Wanek, of Fergus Falls, MN; 3 Grandchildren: Bryce, Riley, and Dawson; a nephew, Jeremy Wanek and his family; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

She was preceded in death by all of her grandparents; her mother, Joyce; and several aunts and uncles.
