Deborah Slutsky

Deborah Slutsky, 65, of Kerhonkson, NY passed away after a long illness on November 10, 2020. Deborah was born on August 26, 1955 in Port Jervis, NY, the daughter of the late Alex and Ruth (Schartmann) Lypka. 


On August 12, 1984 Deborah married the love of her life, Warran Slutsky. 


At a young age Deborah had worked for Dr. James Cone at his veterinary clinic in Napanoch. She became a VetTech and over the years she would oversee the entire clinic at times in both Napanoch and Stone Ridge. Later before her retirement she worked for Rondout Valley Veterinary Associates in Kerhonkson doing administration and reception. Deborah enjoyed gardening and especially crocheting making scarves and hats, you name it she had made it. 


Besides her husband Warran, Deborah is survived by her two sons: Evan Slutsky and his wife Marisa and Andrew Slutsky and his girlfriend Carlie. Also surviving is her sister Heidi Ruger. And she will be sorely missed by her chocolate lab Axel and her kitty Tubby as well as the many family and friends she leaves behind.

To Debbies dear family,
I was incredibly saddened to hear of Debs passing. I am a old school friend and have lived out of town 42 years. We had happily reconnected at our High School reunion at the Skytop in Kingston! It was a fun evening! I told her that I still put up on our Xmas tree the little ornament she had given me sooo long ago in 9 th grade! She was truly the kindest and dearest person and my heart aches for you all- Joanne Markle Jones- Jo Please give Heidi a hug for me! I remember her and their parents with love and fondness-

So sad to hear of Debby's passing. I grew up with her in Liebhardt, and saw her over the years at Dr. Cone's office. She was always a wonderful person, and I am sure will be very missed by her family and friends. Condolences to Heidi, and Debby's whole family.
