Highland, NY - Debra Rothstein-Bergman, a 9 year resident of Highland, NY, formerly of New York City, entered into rest on Thursday, September 12th, 2013. She was 57.
Daughter of the late William and Selma Rothstein, she was born July 3rd, 1956 in Manhattan and raised in Bayside, New York.
She was a freelance accountant/bookkeeper, survived by her partner of fifteen years, Scott Pett, and her loving daughter, Billie Bergman.
She was a devoted partner, mother, sibling to her sister, Lisa Mickel, and brother, Todd Rothstein.
An animal lover, she experienced such pleasure riding her horse, Hennessey, and caring for her canines, Taco, Cassidy, and the late Philly.
Debra had a knack for touching lives in ways that one will carry forever. Whether it was listening, talking or just the occasional favor, helping people was her ultimate joy. If you met her once, you would never forget her. She had a light about her that everyone gravitated towards. With a heart of gold, her love for her family and friends was unconditional.
A graveside burial will be held on Sunday, September 15th, 2013 at 11 a.m. at Wellwood Cemetery on Pinelawn Road in Farmingdale, New York.
