Debra “Deb” Sue Horn

Debra “Deb” Sue Horn, 63, of Rogers City passed away unexpectedly at home Sunday, October 8, 2023.

She was born in Rogers City April 17, 1960 to Elroy and Valerie (McLennan) Bade.

Debbie graduated from Rogers City High School in 1978. On March 31, 1979 she married Mark Horn at St. John Lutheran Church. They were blessed with two children and two grandchildren. Deb was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt, and friend but her favorite title was “Mema” to her two grandkids. Deb was a wonderful homemaker and cook. She was all about taking care of everyone and making sure you got

enough to eat. If you left Deb’s house hungry, it was your own fault! Deb enjoyed camping and spending time with family and friends. She especially loved spoiling her kids and grandkids.

She is survived by her husband, Mark; two daughters, Kelly (Kenny) Karsten and Lindsay (Michael) Truran; two grandchildren, Josh (Tiara Franzoni) Karsten and Kiah Truran; her dad, Elroy Bade; and three siblings, Brenda (Dennis) Kamyszek, Brian (Tammy) Bade and Leigh (Patrick) Chojnacki; as well as nieces and nephews. 

Debra was preceded in death by her mom, Valerie.
