Debra Ann Rueb was born on December 18, 1955, in Hutchinson, Minnesota. She was the daughter of Clarence and Leone (Rickert) Reilein. She was baptized and confirmed at Peace Lutheran Church in Hutchinson. Deb graduated from Hutchinson High School in 1974. After high school, she worked at Harris Pine Mills where she would meet her future husband, Chris Rueb. From there, she held a variety of jobs. Her most recent job was at Habitat for Humanity working as their office coordinator. A few other notable jobs include preschool aide at Little Lambs and King’s Kids, secretary at Ron Hahn’s accounting office, and multiple positions at the Hutchinson Medical Center.
On April 28, 1979, Deb was united in marriage to Chris Rueb at Peace Lutheran Church in Hutchinson. The marriage was blessed with 2 children, Danielle and Brittany. They shared 41 years of marriage together before Deb’s passing.
Deb was a proud mom and grandma. She enjoyed spending time chasing around her 4 grandchildren. She loved to be active whether this be walks with friends, attending workout classes at SNAP Fitness or biking with Chris. Crafting was a passion of hers. She enjoyed sewing, refurbishing furniture, and decorating the house. There was a special place in her heart for wiener dogs, particularly Greta and Lexi. An ideal day for her would be grabbing coffee and heading out to shop with her family.
