Deborah (Debbie) L Golberg, 60, of Red Lodge, Montana, died September 30, 2020 after a lengthy, hard fought battle with cancer, surrounded by her family. She was born November 25, 1959 in Norwalk, California to Harold and Elizabeth (Pedro) Vanderpool and had one sister Carrie. Debbie attended South West High School in San Diego, California. She also played tennis on the men’s team in school. Go Debbie! She loved spending time at the beaches. Debbie attended a technical school in Los Angeles for computer programming/technician. After completing her education Debbie was traveling for her job and Bruce was returning to Alaska and they met while on a flight between Spokane and Seattle. A 35 minute flight at 35,000 feet was just the beginning of their story. After marrying on February 16, 1985 they settled in White Sulphur Springs where they raised two beautiful daughters, Kadie, Sierra and honorary daughter Emily Shinabarger. They always had a special place in their hearts for the many golden retrievers they’ve had through the years as well. Debbie was co-owner of Golberg Construction. She and Bruce also worked at the 6666’s Ranch for a number of years as the management team before moving to Red Lodge. She was always branching out seeking new challenges becoming an EMT, a CNA and getting both a Realtor and Property Management license. Debbie was well known for her fabulous cooking and baking. She loved traveling and seeing the world and experiencing other cultures yet equally loved taking long walks in the mountains with her friend and their dogs. Debbie participated in a lot of community education classes for enrichment; drawing, mosaics, stained glass, pasta making, pottery sculpting, tai chi, pistol, yoga and many others she wanted to try. She always shared what she learned by gifting her work to others with love and care for them. Debbie was so very gifted, educated, strong and caring. She loved nature and was a steward of the earth and encourage others to do the same. She had the ability to truly listen to others and remember each conversation. Debbie’s biggest love of all was being a Mom.

Debbie’s final message for us all was to “Always Remember Kindness Matters”.

Debbie was preceded in death by her mother Elizabeth Pedro; father-in-law Jack Golberg and her faithful and loving dog Kirby.

She is survived by her husband Bruce Golberg of Red Lodge, MT; her daughters Kadie Golberg (Jimmy Jay), Columbia Falls, MT and Sierra Golberg, Billings, MT; father Harold Vanderpool (Margie), San Diego, CA; mothers-in-law Ivalee Robertson, Great Falls MT and Kathi Golberg, Ulm, MT; sister Carrie Culp (Loren), Ridgecrest, CA; step sister Leslie Bohannon Kendall of Los Angeles, CA; sisters-in-law Janet Reed (Ken), Wichita, KS; Marlene Preston (Tom), Great Falls, MT and Terrie Trettenbach, Billings, MT; nephews Trevor Culp, Fromberg, MT; Dylan Culp, Ridgecrest, CA; Christopher Reed (Melissa), Wichita, KS; Travis Trettenbach, Roundup, MT; Branndon Trettenbach, Billings, MT; nieces Chelsea Culp, Billings, MT; Shannon Reed, Wichita, KS.

I was introduced to Deb her husband Bruce. I was surveying for him on the ranch he managed near White Sulphur Springs. As the weeks passed we became friends with Bruce and one day he invited the crew over for supper. We were mighty glad to accept. Little did we know just how glad we were about to become. Bruce and Deb sat us down with Kade and Sierra and then Deb brought on the grub. Boy oh boy did we eat! I don’t remember exactly what we had that first supper, as there were many more during the years to follow, but I will never forget how delicious every meal was. I do remember the homemade bread. Deb was such a wonderful cook and she enjoyed watching us fill up on her great food and on her warmth and kindness. It meant so much to us as we were all missing home and home cooked meals. Deb’s culinary skills continued to brighten our lives with her annual Christmas Care Package when they moved to Red Lodge. My Deb particularly loved her fudge. She was such a loving, kind and gentle person. We will miss her and remember her warmly forever.
