Debbie had left her job in April of 2019 from the Washington County Sheriffs Dept. / Jail as head cook for 23 years due to her illness. Debbie always said it wasn’t a job for everyone but it was a job she loved and wanted to make it to 25 years so she could retire and spend more time with her family and Grandsons.
