She moved to Springtop piggery which was then owned by Anglo American farms and was on the untarred Orient road, now the Maropeng Road, long before Maropeng was built.
Shortly thereafter Debbie started work at Mogale’s Gate.
She later took over the reins at The Auto Cradle Estate for five years and returned to Mogale’s Gate to help out which lasted a further six years.
