Deb was united in marriage to Ernest Hines on January 12, 1974, in Wessington Springs, SD.

Deb was an amazing person. She had a huge heart full of love, beautiful inside and out. She truly was one of a kind. Always there for a hand to hold or an ear to listen. She had three children who she loved dearly, and seven grandchildren who made her world go round. She was a very proud great-grandma to three children.

She was known as “the decorator”, she loved to decorate inside and outside for every holiday! Everyone loved to see her masterpieces! She enjoyed being with family laughing and making memories. She was involved with the Assembly of God church for many years, lots of friends have now turned into to family.

Deb is survived by her husband, Ernest; mother, Arlene; sons, Chad of Mitchell, Chance of Mankato, MN, and Justin of Mitchell; daughter, Chandi Dreyer of Mitchell; six grandchildren, three great-grandchildren; and siblings, Stan Dammann of Mitchell, Steve Dammann of Woonsocket, and Sheri Gubbins of Littleton, CO.
