Deborah A. Muhs, 68, of Watertown, MN, passed away Tuesday, Aug. 2, 2022, at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis, MN.

Her funeral service took place Saturday, Aug. 6, 2022, at 11 a.m. at St. Peter Lutheran Church in Watertown. The Rev. William Kirmsse was the officiant.

The visitation took place Friday, Aug. 5, 2022. The interment also took place at the church cemetery Friday.

Deborah Ann Muhs was born Dec. 15, 1953, in Watertown, MN, the daughter of Andrew and Vernice (Koehnen) Weiland.

On Nov. 16, 1974, Deborah was united in marriage to Dale Muhs at St. Peter Lutheran Church in Watertown.

Debbie brought light and joy to so many lives. If she wasn’t playing cards with her friends or siblings, she was looking forward to her next trip to Branson, MO.

Deb was always the social butterfly; she and Dale would even sit at the patio table, wave, and watch the cars go by on Highway 25. When her friends or family would come by, the conversation was always at the kitchen table, and it was never a quick visit.

Deb was always willing to take her favorite non-human grandchild, Maya.

When Maya knew she was going to Grandma and Grandpa’s, she was in the car before we were, and when we picked her up, she would run and hide because she wanted to stay.

Deb treasured her family and was especially delighted with each of her grandchildren. She loved and spoiled them as every grandma should.

When mom was in the room, it always lit up from her smile and personality, even though she did not like being the center of attention.

No matter the time of the year, there was always a treat of some kind, from cookies to bars to cake and everything in between, and always homemade.

Deborah was preceded in death by her son Patrick Muhs; parents Andrew and Vernice Weiland; brother Roger Weiland; sister Betty (Keith) Donahue; father-in-law and mother-in-law Walter and Orla Muhs; sister-in-law Judy Weiland; brother-in-law Hans “Moynie” Meyer.

Deborah is survived by her loving family: husband Dale; son Benjamin Muhs and special friend Michelle of St. Louis Park, MN; daughter Amanda Rozeboom and special friend Matt of St. Paul, MN; daughter-in-law Jennifer Muhs; grandchildren Erik, Keri, Amelia, Penelope, Sydney; grand-puppy Maya; sisters and brothers Mary Meyer of Waconia, MN, Kenneth Weiland of Waconia,  Andrew (Susan) Weiland of Whitehall, NH, Linda (Roger) Sauerbrey of Norwood Young America, MN, Gerald (Chris) Weiland of Waconia, Susan (Larry) Goede of Waconia, Chuck (Joanne) Weiland of Mayer, MN; brother-in-law Fred (Mary) Muhs of Pittsburgh, TX; sister-in-law Marilyn Weiland of Waconia; nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

Greg Muhs, John Ibeling, Nate Ibeling, Jim Sexton, Mike Donahue, and John Donahue were casket bearers.
