Deborah Diane (Hanger) Struttman, aged 66 of Hermann, MO entered into eternal rest and walked through the gates of heaven surrounded by family in Hermann, MO on June 12, 2019.
Debbie is survived by her husband of 39 years, Douglas A. Struttman of Hermann, her beloved dog, Lacie, her son, Kyle Heberle and wife Nicole of Spirit Lake, IA, her daughter Karrie Fisher and husband Kurt of Bradenton, FL, her grandchildren, Kole and Khloe Heberle, an her grand dogs, Sasha, Bella, Clark (whom she lovingly nicknamed Boo), and Louis.
Debbie was born on August 14, 1952 in Independence MO, the daughter of the late George Hanger and Erma (Brawley) Schaefer. Debbie is also survived by her sister, Beverly Seibert (Gary) of Ormond Beach, FL, her brother Steve Hanger (Kelly) of Hermann, MO and by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. Debbie was preceded in death by two brothers George (Buddy) Hanger of Webb City, MO, and a half-brother, Jerry Hanger of Winona, MO.
Debbie spent her working career in the data processing field with various companies. She started her career at the Daniels International Power Plant in Fulton, MO and served as their Director of Data Processing for many years. She then went into the mental health field and owned/operated her own business, called Keystrokes, doing transcription and dictations for various doctors in the Hermann and Columbia, MO area.
Debbie was a true survivor and an intense fighter in everything that God threw her way. She survived a near fatal car accident, two strokes, and breast cancer. She truly was a strong fighter till the very end, until she knew it was time to let go and take a walk with God.
Debbie was an avid reader for most of her life and enjoyed the romance novels by Danielle Steele. She also enjoyed watching her flower garden bloom every year and watching the hummingbirds out the window in the summertime. She loved to play Bingo with her friends and would often travel great distances for a game, often, returning home the big winner. You wouldn’t find Debbie without her cup of ice cold Pepsi and a piece of chocolate. Debbie cherished the time she got to spend with her children and grandchildren.
The family would like to thank the staff at Frene Valley Nursing Home for their outstanding care and compassion.
A private Celebration of Life will be held for family and close friends in August.
Memorial donations may be given to the Hermann Area Crusade Against Cancer.
