She grew up in Glendale, AZ and attended Independence High School where she participated in many extracurricular activities. Her bubbly personality shined in high school and it was where she met her future husband, Kurt Stratton. She and Kurt were married for 29 years. Debbie attended ASU and graduated with a Nutrition degree. Kurt and Debbie had two beautiful children, Kara and Luke Stratton. Debbie loved her children, traveling, cooking, her life-long friendships, her family, get-togethers and the ocean. She especially loved the time spent with her loved ones in Rocky Point, Mexico.
