Born in Canton on July 25, 1960, Deborah L. “Debi” Wilston was the daughter of the late Jack L. Wilston and Dolores Jane (Roby) Wilston of Towanda Skilled Nursing and formerly of Canton.
After graduating from Canton High School, Debi received an Associates degree in Horticulture from the former Williamsport Area Community College. She married Stephen M. Innes on February 14, 1981 at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Canton. In addition to being a homemaker, in earlier years Debi worked with the kitchen staff of the former White Tavern Restaurant. Later she was employed by Penn Dot. Debi was a life-time member of Canton’s V.F.W. Post 714 Auxiliary and life-time member of the New York State Pony Pulling Association. Times spent with family were very important to Debi. She found her calling while helping dad with his pulling ponies. Father Jack passed that chain of command on to her and Debi passed it on to son Casey.
