Who is Deborah Shiling?

Born on an unspecified day in 1944 in Baltimore, Maryland USA, Deborah Shiling is a 75-year-old Caucasian woman. She is definitely best known to the world for being the ex-wife of former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, who achieved world fame in his struggle for the seat of power in the USA’s presidential election in 2016. Besides that, it is unknown whether she had any of her own successes over the course of her unknown career.

Early Life and Education: Growing up in Baltimore

Deborah was raised apparently an only child in her birthplace by her father, Dr. Moses Shiling, who was at the time the chief of pulmonary diseases at Baltimore’s Sinai Hospital, and her mother of an unknown name and profession. When it comes to her earliest interests, there isn’t much information across sources that could clarify specifics about this part of her life, though she is believed to have harbored a passion for politics. As for her education, she first attended an unspecified local high school in her birthplace, from where she matriculated in 1962, then furthered her studies by enrolling into the University of Chicago, from where she graduated with an unspecified degree in 1966. While in college, she was an advocate for various social justice issues, versus an array of political segments that needed rectification in her opinion, and was a student civil rights activist, and even joined the Congress of Race Equality.

Love Life: A Short Marriage

The action that brought fame to her was deciding to marry her college sweetheart, Bernie Sanders, on the 6th of September 1964. As can be read in an article by dailymail.co.uk, their marriage ceremony took place in the garden of Deborah’s parents’ home in her birthplace. They then purchased a sugar shack for $2,500 that also had 85 acres of surrounding land, located close to the hamlet of Middlesex, shared a spartan life there without any electricity for a full 18 months, after which they filed for divorce in 1966, and they have been apart since. They did not have any kids together. Deborah remarried many years later, to a man named Bob. However, there is not much information that could offer more insight into her second marriage. She has since then been known as Deborah Messing, and there is no information as to whether she had any children.

Does Bernie have other marriages?

Three years after his divorce, Bernie Sanders entered a one-year-long relationship with a woman named Susan Campbell Mott, who he broke up with in 1969, but has maintained a good relationship with her since they have a son named Levi together, who was born on the 21st of March 1969 in Johnsbury, Vermont. Besides that, Bernie mainly pursued a political career during the twenty years that followed his divorce from Deborah. Eventually, upon becoming mayor of Burlington in Vermont in 1981, he met Jane O’Meara, who became his wife in 1988 after seven years of dating. Even though it is public knowledge that Bernie has four children, it is rarely noted that three of them are adopted from O’Meara’s previous marriage, named Dave, Carina and Heather Driscoll.

He released an album during this time

One year prior to marrying O’Meara, Bernie Sanders released a folk music album, featuring five songs on one side and a conversation on the other; the most famous of them is entitled “We Shall Overcome”, with a duration of over seven minutes. However, this album wasn’t Bernie’s idea – musician Todd Lockwood found it interesting to produce music alongside his mayor, and thus asked Bernie to join him in his studio named “White Crow Audio”. In an interview for sevendaysvt.com, when asked about the general rhythm that Bernie displayed during the recording sessions, Todd said ‘No sense of melody. No sense of rhythm — the rhythm part surprised me, because he has good rhythm when he’s delivering a speech in public.’ The album was released on the 12th of December, and it sold approximately 1,000 copies locally.

What is Deborah Shiling’s Net Worth?

Have you ever wondered how rich Deborah Shiling is, as of early 2019? According to various authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the total of Deborah’s accumulated wealth is close to $100,000, made by lending her expertise to various employers over the years. As she is now in retirement, the said amount is not expected to increase.

Body Measurements

When it comes to her physical specifications, there is at the moment not enough information across credible sources to verify her exact height, weight, clothing sizes and vital statistics. However, it is known that Deborah’s hair is gray, that her eyes are light green and her complexion is mostly fair. Lastly, her body shape is generally described as regular.

Social Media Presence

Thanks to the ever expanding grasp that social media has on worldwide audiences, it is in the best interests of most celebrities to keep their fans informed about their activities and thus maintain and potentially increase their rating and profit. However, it doesn’t appear as though Deborah is at all preoccupied with maintaining her involvement in this trend, seeing as her presence on social networks is all but ubiquitous at the moment – Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts don’t exist.
