Debbie Dirtzu

Age 63, of Cottage Grove

Passed away peacefully in her home surrounded her family from Multiple Systems Atrophy. 

Preceded in death by parents, Norman and Virgina; and brother, Jeff Vogt. 

She will be greatly missed by husband, Scott; children, Micki Dirtzu, Brooke (David Escobar) Dirtzu, Brittany (Daniel Gallego) Dirtzu and Lindsey (Matt) Deiman; grandchildren, Jaeden, Violeta, Tala, Henry and Finn; and sister Brenda (Kurt) Tebben.

Debbie worked as a bookkeeper at the family business Independent Diesel and truly enjoyed the role of mom and grandma.  She loved to sew and craft over the years and always enjoyed a good book.  One of her favorite things to do was to spend time on the Mississippi River on the boat with family and friends.

Debbie is known fondly for her silly sense of humor, her butterfly dance, love of ice cream and kind heart. 

After Debbie’s courageous fight, she has donated her brain to continue scientific research on MSA through the Brain Bank at the Mayo Clinic.  The family asks that any memorials be put towards continued research on this rare neurological disease.

 Brain Bank at Mayo Clinic.

A private family service will be held on Sunday, April 11, 2021
