Debbie Hinerman, a teacher at Union Junior High for the last 18 years,
will be sadly missed by her
fellow teachers, friends, and family. Many who knew Debbie will remember her great sense
of humor and her gift-to-gab. There was never a dull moment when in the presence of Debbie. It was
no surprise that Debbie would become a teacher, as education and educators surrounded her.
Her entire family, including her husband Mark is involved in education. It was evident that being
with her students is where she wanted to be. Her last two weeks were the most heroic of any
one person. No one realized the pain she must have been in. Not once did she ever complain or look
for sympathy from anyone. She persevered to the very end and will be well remembered for
her determination as a teacher and example to the students of Union Junior High.
