Deb was born on Oct. 27, 1956, in Hobart, to Robert and Phyllis (Luse) Caldwell. Her father tragically passed away when she was young. Her mother would re-marry, to Frank Hutton, who she knew as “Dad.” She graduated from Plymouth High School with the class of 1975.
Before she even walked the stage for her high school graduation, Deb married her high school sweetheart, Russell “Rusty” R. White. They were united on April 26, 1975, at the now, Plymouth Wesleyan Church. To this union, the couple was blessed with three girls: Lisa, Jennifer and Kristie.
In her early years, she worked for a number of local businesses including: Glenmark, Hallmark and as a pharmacy technician at the Walmart Pharmacy. The past few years, Deb took the time to slow down the clock and spend more time with her grandchildren. She became a stay-at-home grandma and enjoyed teaching them things and watching them grow. Deb loved being with her family and having family cook-outs.
Family came first, but animals were not far behind in the ranking. She had a deep passion for all animals and their well-being. She also enjoyed working in her garden, landscaping and sewing.
