Deborah was born October 24, 1952 in Manchester, Iowa, the daughter of Amos and Dolores (Williams) Booth. On June 17, 1989 Deborah married Bradley Smith at Kent Park, near Oxford.

Deborah was a nursing assistant at the VAMC for 28 years, retiring in 2004. She and Brad lived in Iowa City for many years. In 2020 Deborah moved to Brown Deer Place in Coralville to be near her mother.

Deborah was a gentle, caring soul, who lived simply. She was more concerned about others than herself. Family was most important to her. She always called family and friends and would say, Im just checking in. Deborah enjoyed reading, traveling, and watching Iowa Public Television.
