Deborah Lynn “Debby” Dudeck, 57, of LaPorte, IN passed away Monday, Oct. 10, 2022. She lived her life with strength, courage, and grace until the very end.

Her life began Oct. 16, 1964, in Watervliet, born to David Bailey and Kathleen Curry. She married the love of her life, Dave Dudeck, June 27, 2017, in LaPorte, after dating for five years. Dave and Debby had been friends for thirty years when life finally brought them together. Her greatest joy was spending time with Dave and his family.

Debby was a 1983 graduate of Watervliet High School. Her working years were spent as an administrative assistant for LECO, KPMG, and Plante Moran. She resided in St. Joseph prior to moving to LaPorte. She loved the beach life but learned to love the peaceful country life even more. Debby loved gardening, cooking, and baking. She enjoyed going to NASCAR races and camping in the infield with her big brother Randy. She was a very artistic and creative person and always found a way to add a special touch to everything she did.

Debby will be greatly missed by family and friends. She is survived by her husband, Dave Dudeck of La Porte, IN; brother, Randy (Diane) Bailey of Bangor; father-in-law, Norm Dudeck of Three Oaks; stepson, Phillip (Keegan) Dudeck of LaPorte; fur babies, Reilly and Riggs; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
