Deb was born on October 20, 1957, in Colorado Springs, Colorado to Carroll and Wanda (Carter) Koch. She grew up in Moville, Iowa graduating from Woodbury Central in 1976.

Debbie was an amazing woman, who always put others before herself. She was many things to many people, but some of her special gifts included gardening, flowers, cooking from scratch, collecting, decorating for the holidays, and many other things.

She worked in many positions through the years, in which all of them involved being a friendly smiling face in the public and helping to serve others in any way she could. Being a caregiver to all was her specialty; if needed she was there.

She loved spending time with her family especially her husband, children, grands, siblings, and her friends, playing cards, and having many long talks and conversations with those that were close to her from every direction for miles.

On October 20, 2019, Deb married her long-time love Paul Patterson at their home in Moville, Iowa.

She began her two plus year battle with cancer shortly after their union and began the fight of a lifetime. She never once complained and never gave up. She lived each day with patience, hope and love. And she finally won.

She is survived by her husband Paul of Moville, Iowa; daughter, Paula (Todd) Roling of Kingsley, Iowa; two sisters, Kila (Tony) Meissner of Spencer, Iowa, and Tina Mogensen (Ryan) of Twin Falls, Idaho; brother Barry (Dora) Koch of New Castle, Wyoming, brother-in-law, Larry (Daletta) Patterson, Washta, Iowa, three grandchildren, Colton Etler (Kallie), Ashton Roling, Trinaty Roling; great-granddaughter, Hadley Margaret, nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, and numerous friends.

Deb is preceded in death by her parents and her son, Derek William Rahn.
