Deb was born Sept. 23, 1956, in Manchester, the daughter of Raymond and Ruth (Wessels) Schulte. Deb was raised in the Manchester area and was a 1974 graduate of West Delaware High School. She then attended N.I.C.C. for nursing.

On May 1, 1976, Deb was united in marriage to David Wendt at St. Mary Catholic Church in Manchester. Four children were born to this union. The couple farmed together near Delhi.

Deb was always up for an adventure. She and Dave saw some amazing places together and enjoyed traveling with forever friends. Deb was always happiest at home surrounded by her family. It was the simple things she cherished most and precious time was one of them. She loved attending her grandkids activities and enjoyed time on Lake Delhi. Deb was a model of strength and courage to all those she met.
