Debra (Deby) Gustafson was elected to the WMFA Board of Directors in 2020. Mason County was home until 1997, when her family moved south a mile and a half into Weare Township, Oceana County. Deby attended school in Pentwater and received her GED. Until some serious health issues curtailed two career choices, Deby is now very happy working for the family business, Gustafason Well Drilling, Inc.
Deby has two adult children and several wonderful nieces and nephews who are 4-H members and introduced her to the joys of attending the annual fair. Other interests are traveling, camping and family time. The reason Deby ran for the Board was to give back to the community and in her words “share some of her useless knowledge!”
One area of expertise learned as time serving as the Weare Township clerk, is assisting the WMFA treasurer with the daily cash office responsibilities. She also helped with parking and filled in wherever there was a void.
