Deb Sue Acklie was born March 11, 1955 in Norfolk, NE to Glen and Irma (Renner) Acklie. She was the youngest child with four older brothers. Deb was raised and attended school in the Madison school district where she graduated. Deb married Charles Stultz in Madison, NE on September 28, 1974. She and Charlie lived in Eastern Nebraska working different jobs while starting their family, before moving to the Sioux Falls area in 1988. Deb managed the office for Charlie’s trucking operation for many years. Deb was especially fond of holidays which meant spending time with family and her grandkids. She loved to cook, do Crosswords and Sudoku, play pitch with her family, knitting and various arts and crafts. Watching the birds in the back yard and spending time with Charlie were many of her favorite times. Sadly, her husband of 39 years, passed away last August.
