Debrah Moline-Swenson Obituary

Debrah "Debbie" M. Moline-Swenson, 69, of Machesney Park, IL, passed away peacefully at home on January 10, 2024 peacefully at home. She was born on June 29, 1954, in Rockford, Illinois, to Yvonne and Paul Petersen.  Debbie was a loving person with an outgoing personality. She was a wonderful daughter, sister, wife, and friend. Debbie was loved by everyone who knew her. Debbie had a great sense of humor and a deep compassion for animals. She would often take in stray animals if their owners could not be found.

Debbie is survived by her husband, Craig; sisters, Marlene (Darryl) and Kelly (Rick); brothers, Steve "Petey" (Diane) and Mark; niece, Megan; nephews, Fred (Amy), Paul (Tammy), Blake (Sydney), Connor, and Garrett; great-nieces, Tara, Jenna, Hannah and Desi; great-nephew, Weston; Aunt Phil and several cousins. She is also survived by her two closest friends, Jill Pellegrino and Ginger Blythe. She was preceded in death by her parents, Yvonne and Paul Petersen, and her first husband, Doug Moline.

Debbie dedicated many years of her life to a career in retail. She worked at K-Mart until it was changed to Sears Essentials, where she continued to work for many years. Later, she worked at Big Lots for about 10 years. In her free time, Debbie enjoyed being outdoors, planting flowers, and simply enjoying the weather. She was also a fan of Nascar and frequently attended races at the Byron Raceway and Rockford Speedway. Spending time with her dog, Gizmoe, brought her great joy.
