Deborah was born Jan. 6, 1969, in Havre, Mont., to Joseph and Katie (Stahl) Hofer Jr. She was raised in Harlem and attended the North Harlem Colony School. She attended college in Billings, Mont., at Rocky Mountain College and graduated cum laude with her Bachelor of Science degree in information technology. On Feb. 14, 1999, Deborah married Joseph F. Sisk in Red Lodge, Mont.
Together they made their home in Billings, where Deborah worked as a federal security officer. They moved to Havre in 2009 for Deborah to work as a budget analyst for the United States Customs and Border Protection.
Deborah was known as a free spirit by family and friends. Given to us by God for such a short time, she now soars on eagles wings and rests with her most precious and beloved Savior. We who are left have yet to comprehend all we have lost — an adored wife, a precious daughter, sister, aunt, friend and confidante
Deborah spent 42 wonderful years filled with hopes and dreams. Her dreams were like a rainbow, sometimes fading, but mostly bright and joyful. She loved working, but her passion was her husband and family, from spending a Sunday driving with her husband to spoiling her five nieces. Deborah brought life and joy into everyone she touch and will be greatly missed.
She was preceded in death by her sister, Evelyn Hofer; and one brother, Joseph Hofer.
Deborah is survived by her husband, Joseph Sisk of Havre, Mont. ; her parents, Joseph and Katie Hofer of the North Harlem Colony; one sister, Laura (Robert) Wollman and their daughters, Isabelle, Jolie and Alexis of Airdrie, Alberta, Canada; one brother, Benny D. (Brianne) Hofer, and their daughters, Meleri and Sophia of Billings, Mont.
