Deborah Spungen is the mother of Nancy Spungen, the girlfriend of punk rocker Sid Vicious. Deborah Spungen recounts her life with her daughter in her autobiography And I Don't Want to Live This Life. She was born in 1938 or 1937.

Her autobiography tells not only about raising Nancy, whom she had at twenty and also describes Nancy as disturbed from a young age, but also her life following Nancy's murder in regard to her and her family's treatment by the judicial system and the press. She began the Philadelphia chapter of FMV, Families of Murder Victims, soon after Nancy's death in order to cope with her tragedy, and later obtained a Master's Degree in Social Work from Bryn Mawr College.

Deborah Sprungen, born in Philadelphia, has been the owner of a natural foods store, a direct mail consultant, and a member of the Philadelphia Crime and Elderly Coalition. She has a husband, Frank, and two children, Susan and David.
