IRON MOUNTAIN – Debra Alquist, 68, of Iron Mountain entered into eternal life with her Lord and Savior on June 2, 2022, at Marshfield Medical Center with her family by her side.
She was born September 30, 1953 in Milwaukee, WI to the late Patrick Farley and Evelyn (Federspiel) Gorman. Debbie grew up in the Iron Mountain-Kingsford area and has lived there her entire life.
She was married to her best friend, Timothy Alquist, for a total of 41 years.
She held various jobs in her youth and became a housewife once she became a mother.
Debra loved her family more than anything and spent many of her days with them.
She was a wonderful writer and in her spare time she wrote many poems, short stories and even some musical pieces. She also loved playing cards, especially Skippo, and although she hated losing, she was still a good sportswoman. She loved learning about her heritage, and she enjoyed reading her Bible and did various Bible studies.
Debra’s survivors include her loving husband of 41 years, Timothy Alquist; four children: three daughters and one son, Tracy Farley of Sheboygan, Wis., Patricia (Mark) Creed of Niagara, Wis., Brian Tauscheck of Lexington, Olka., and Beth (Jeff) Clinton of Ponka City, Okla. ; one brother, Patrick Farley; seven grandchildren, Brandon (26), Tyler (22), Micah (19), Allyssa (18), Rhianon (20), Natalie (15) and Kamilla (10); and several nieces and nephews.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her brother, Richard Farley.
The family would like to thank Angela Galeazzi from the bottom of their hearts for her care and dedication to Debbie as a home health aide over the past two years.
