They resided in Jackson, Ohio until their recent move to Cincinnati to be closer to their only child, Mark, and his family. Debbie was a passionate teacher for 16 years before early retirement due to Multiple Sclerosis. The vast majority of her teaching was with Wellston City Schools where she also served as President of the Wellston Teachers Association. Longtime members of the First Presbyterian Church of Jackson, Debbie and John sang in the choir for decades.
