She was the first female player to ever don a varsity uniform playing tennis her senior year at Valley Forge High School. She went on to be a tennis Pro in Hilton Head, SC before settling into her career as Options Trader.

Debbie loved to travel and keep in touch with her many friends. When Debbie became your friend, she was a friend for life. She leaves behind many, many friends who were like family.

Messages of Condolence
I am sorry to hear of Deb’s struggle but I have a feeling she had her head up every day. I played with Deb on Valley Forge’s Tennis Team and it was great to have her on the team and see her progress through life. I don’t doubt her accomplishments were great and well earned!
I am saddened to hear of Debbie’s death. She and I became friends in the very early 1960’s. She was my friend of longest duration. Over the years we grew apart, but I will always cherish her friendship and the friendship of the entire Dahn family. I’m sorry I missed the memorial. May you all find peace. RIP dearest Debbie.
