Deborah Lynn Ulmer, 57
          YORKTOWN - "Debby" as she was known by friends and loving family members, passed to a better place on October 11, 2006. She lost a life-long battle with diabetes and its many complications. Debby was born in Winchester, IN to Harry and Barbara (Amburn) Douglass. She was raised in Farmland by her grandparents, Al and Hattie Douglass and she graduated from Monroe Central High School in 1967.
          Debby found her life's work in being a devoted mother and homemaker. She later worked outside the home at Ball Memorial Hospital as a phlebotomist and lab clerk. She found the career she loved when she became a dental assistant working for Dr. Engstrom and Dr. Ryan. Due to the complications of diabetes she was forced to end her career in dentistry. The past several years she enjoyed working as a security guard at the Marsh warehouse in Yorktown.
          Debby was a founding board member of the Delaware County Diabetes Support Group. She was active in the Yorktown Fire Department Auxiliary for many years and was also a member of Theta Eta chapter of Beta Sigma Phi. Her hobbies included handcrafts, ceramics and painting concrete statues. She was especially fond of canoe trips down White River.
          Debby leaves her devoted husband, Tom of Muncie; two loving sons. Scott Ulmer (wife, Missi), who resides in Rockville, MD and Jasen Ulmer, who lives in Muncie. Debby was always very proud of her sons and especially of her 8 grandchildren, Courtney, Tommy, Jacob, Meggan, Jimmy, Jasen Jr., Katie and Charlie. Debby's mother, Barbara Cassell resides in Winchester, IN; and Debby's brother, Mike Douglass, lives in Thornton, CO.
