She is survived by her son, Scott Haythorn, his wife, Meghan and her most beloved grandson, Tripp. Also mourning her passing are her stepdaughters, Jennifer Knoch Grunenberg, Amanda Knoch Harris (Jim) and her step grandchildren Sidney, Petra, David and James. Debbie loved her country and was incredibly proud of her son Scott’s and step-grandson James’ service for this country.
