Fairfield, Maine-Deborah Elizabeth Huck, 60, of Fairfield, Maine, died in Augusta, Maine on Tuesday, October 18, 2016, after seven years of battling cancer and the health care system.\r\n\r\nDebbie was born on November 18, 1955, in Oak Park, Illinois and grew up in Sierra Madre, California; Phoenix, Arizona; Greenwich, Connecticut; and rural Pennsylvania. Her passion for books and learning resonated throughout her life and career. She graduated from the University of Montana with a degree in English, her first job teaching English and running the library at Fairfield (Montana) High School. Moving to Maine in 1986, she worked as a librarian in York and Wells public libraries. While raising two kids, she eventually settled at Benton Elementary School working first as a substitute teacher, then a special education aid, then a library assistant. She usually had five books and her kindle open at the same time. \r\n\r\nDebbie’s other great love was cooking and baking. She created a cookbook “The Huck Family Greatest Hits” for her children. There will be many family and friends missing her amazing cookie platters this Christmas.\r\n\r\nDebbie was also active in Amnesty International, leading the Waterville area chapter for over 14 years, acting as legislative coordinator for Maine, and organizing events, fair booths and exhibits statewide. \r\n\r\nDebbie was predeceased by her mother and father, Beverly Lou and Robert Voss Bock, formerly of Glenmoore, PA. \r\n\r\nShe is survived by her husband of 36 years Christopher Huck of Fairfield, ME; children, Matthew Huck of Portland, Oregon and Nicole Huck of Fairfield, ME; sister Kimberly Beggs and her husband Jim of West Caln, PA; brother Christopher Bock and his wife Bonnie of Spring City, PA; adopted brother Sung Yun Bock of Victoria, Australia; sister-in-law Lisabeth Huck of Guilford, CT; brother-in-law Michael Huck and his husband Andres of Huntington Beach, CA; and 11 nieces and nephews.\r\n\r\nDebbie’s Memorial Service will be held on Monday, October 24 at 3:30 PM, at the Benton Grange Hall on School Street in Benton, ME. If you want to honor her, don’t do it with flowers; buy a book. \r\n\r\nDonations may be made in her name to the library book fund at Benton Elementary School.
