Deborah Ann Williams, 62, passed away peacefully on January 30, 2013 at Dougherty House with family and friends by her side.
Debby was born to Howard and Bobby Hanson May 18, 1950 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. She was educated in Sioux Falls and was active at First Congregational Church. Debby graduated from Lincoln High in 1968, attended Colorado State University and graduated from Augustana College. Deb led a successful sales career with IBM for 27 years and was very involved with the Spokane United Way.
In 1977 Deb married Gregory Hauck in Sioux Falls. The couple lived in Spokane, Washington where their son Cameron was born in 1985.
Debby enjoyed an active lifestyle of golfing, skiing, sailing, biking, running, walking and fishing. An avid traveler, Deb enjoyed adventures all over the world with family and friends. Friendship and conversation came easily to Deb and she will be deeply missed by many.
In 2000 Deb married Richard Williams and moved with Cameron to Salt Lake City, Utah. Sadly Deb was faced with breast cancer
and later Benson's syndrome, a rare form of Alzheimer's disease.
