Deborah Ann Hatzenbuhler was born in Dickinson on December 2, 1960, to Mike and Leona (Decker) Hatzenbuhler. She was the only girl in the family with five other brothers. Debbie attended school in Dickinson and graduated from Trinity High School.
After graduation, Debbie worked as a nanny for 2 years. When she returned to Dickinson she had various jobs, including working at A&B Pizza, Knights of Columbus, Albertson’s, Dan’s, and most recently Running’s.
Debbie was a very devoted daughter, which was evident in the care she gave her parents. She always made sure their fridge was stocked, tummies were full, and errands had been done.
Debbie married the love of her life, Tom Roller, on August 12, 1994. To this union two beautiful daughters were born: Teia and Shealynn.
Debbie had various hobbies such as cooking, baking, sewing, gardening, and walks with her friends. In the fall of the year, Debbie could be found with her dad in his kitchen, making Salsa. Most of Debbie’s recipes were from her mother who was also a great cook. Debbie loved to go on adventures of any kind to anywhere. Her greatest joy, however, was spending time with her daughters and her grandchildren, who lovingly called her “Nana.”
She leaves behind her husband of 27 years, Tom Roller, her daughter, Teia (Jon) Hoffart and their children Jaxson and Ashton, Dickinson, and her daughter Shealynn (Pierce) Rescigno and their children Maverick and Violet, Grand Forks. Debbie is also survived by her father, Mike Hatzenbuhler, and four brothers, Duwayne (Leah) Hatzenbuhler, Kenneth Hatzenbuhler, Blaine Hatzenbuhler, and Tim (Jeannie) Hatzenbuhler and special friends, Joseph and Michele Hoffart of Dickinson, plus many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Debbie was preceded in death by her mother, Leona Hatzenbuhler, her brother, Kevin Hatzenbuhler, her father-in-law, John Roller and her brother-in-law, Lonnie Custer.
The family would like to thank the nurses and doctors that cared for Debbie while she was a patient at CHI St. Alexius Health Dickinson.
