Deborah A. (Pembleton) Haden

Deborah Anne (Pembleton) Haden, age 74, of Benton (Talmar), entered eternal rest on March 3, 2023, at the Geisinger Medical Center in Danville surrounded by her loving family.

Born in Wilkes-Barre on February 5, 1949, a daughter of the late Robert W. and Anne M. (Honas) Pembleton, she was a resident of the Benton-Millville area for the past 34 years and previously lived in New Jersey.

Deborah was a graduate of John F. Kennedy High School, Willingboro, NJ in 1967 and of Misericordia College, Dallas, PA in 1971.

A devout Catholic and pillar of her faith, she was a member of Christ The King Catholic Church, Benton, where she faithfully served as a Confirmation Teacher for over 25 years.

Deborah was employed by the Shamokin School District as an Emotional Support Teacher until her retirement.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Robert W. Pembleton, Jr., her baby daughter, Elizabeth Anne and her grandson, Anthony Stephen Hopper.

Deborah was a loving wife and mother, and she adored doting on her family, especially her five grandchildren. Always a creative thinker and doer, Debby was a talented crafter, cook, and baker, celebrated for her beautifully decorated cakes which she lovingly and joyfully made for special occasions for her family and church. 

She is survived by her husband of 47 years, Paul W. Haden, three children: Jennifer A., wife of Kyle Thatcher, Laura Haden, wife of Raymond Haden, Paul W. Haden II, and his wife Shanna; five grandchildren: Simon, Jack, Sophia, Eli, and Alex, all of Millville.
