Deborah was born on April 17, 1948, the first of five children to Robert F. and Betty Lou (Maloney) Tinberg.
Deborah attended Meadow Lane Elementary School from kindergarten through eighth grade, Olathe Junior High School for ninth grade and then graduated from Olathe High School, class of 1967. She then attended Avila College where she received her B. bachelor’s degree in social work and a master’s degree in psychology. Subsequently, she also earned a master’s degree in social work from the University of Missouri. She has worked for over thirty years as a social worker/psychologist. In recent years she has been employed by The Forum at Overland Park, in Overland Park, Kansas, where she enjoyed spending time with her colleagues and getting to know the many residents there.
Deborah was a free spirit who was steadfast in her faith and enjoyed life to the fullest. Her life has taken her on many wonderful adventures. She loved everything about her, from continuing her education to music and belly dancing. But being a wife, mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, great grandmother, and friend were truly her cherished joys in her life.
