She graduated from Creighton High School in 1972. On April 12, 1975, Debbie was united in marriage to Dale Kuhlman at Zion Lutheran Church in Plainview. They were blessed with three children, Jennifer, Jill, and Michael.

After their marriage, Debbie and Dale resided on his parent’s farm east of Creighton. She was a dedicated farmwife and worked by Dale’s side helping him on the farm with harvesting. Prior to the birth of her children, Debbie also worked as a dental assistant for Dr. Polak in Creighton.

Debbie’s family was her priority, and once the grandchildren came along, they were her pride and joy. They spent a lot of time with her as they were growing up and she attended all their activities. Debbie also enjoyed spending time at the river when her children were younger.
