Debra Kay Weisert

October 20, 1957 – November 8, 2016

Age 59, of Roberts

Debra was raised in Northern Minnesota and attended Blackduck High School.  She graduated from Concordia College, St. Paul, MN in 1979.  She served in both the US Navy and US Marine Corps during the 1980’s.  She lived with her family for several years in the Green Bay, WI area, completing her degree in teaching while working in small business.  She taught in Hurley, Hudson and Manawa school districts, retiring this summer due to a long term battle with cancer.  True to her organizational style, she chose to leave for a birthday party with her favorite aunt in heaven, exiting before the disappointing presidential election results were final.

Debra is survived by her daughter, Joy Holl, two grandchildren Myla and Ryan, and her sister, Heidi Weisert-Peatow. 

An interment service with military honors will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, November 16, 2016 at Ft. Snelling National Cemetery (Assembly Area #3), 7601 34th Ave. S, Minneapolis, MN.

Please note: if you just submitted a tribute, it is pending approval.
    • Dear Joy, Myla, Ryan, and Heidi. My condolences to you. Please read John 5:28, 29 in your Bible. Sincerely Debbie’s first cousin Lorraine Meier.

    • Dear Joy, Myla, Ryan, and Heidi. I’m so sorry to hear about Debbie. I’m her first cousin once removed. Debbie had a wonderful personality. She was fun to be around. I’m deeply sadden by her death. I look forward to the time described at Revelation 21:4 “God will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more”. May you find peace and comfort in your memories of your dear mother, grandmother, sister and friend. Sincerely, Karalyn Nicholson (nee Meier)

    • To Ms. Weisert’s family,

      I was a former student in Ms. Weisert’s senior psychology class at Hudson High School. Her class was engaging, interesting, and memorable. I have fond memories of the learning experiences she provided in that class.
      I was also fortunate to work with her at the Hudson School District. She served as the HR director on the interview team that hired me and was incredibly supportive and helpful as I made the transition to teaching at Hudson Middle School.
      I am incredibly sorry for your loss. Ms. Weisert will remain in my memories as a kind, joyful, and generous teacher and colleague.
