Debra Ray Lewerke, loving daughter and sister, passed away at the age of 66 on June 19, 2023.

She was born on August 6, 1956 in Estherville, Iowa to Harm and Eula (Zufall) Lewerke. Debra graduated from Buffalo High School and was employed by General Mills until her retirement.

When she wasn’t working, she liked to spend her free time with friends and family. She played softball, joined bowling leagues, played pool, and loved seeing her family at their reunions. Debra was kind, outgoing, and had a warm smile. A passion for Debra was her four-legged friends who kept her company. She had several dogs and cats in her lifetime, all of whom she cared for very much.

We will miss her laughter, smiles, and even her scolding at times.

Debra was preceded in death by her father, Harm; mother, Eula; and brother, Paul.

She is survived by her siblings, Steven, Noreen (James), Donnie (Donna), and Danny; many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great- nephews; and many other relatives and friends.
