Natalie DeBotton (nee Boyarksy), 94, passed away peacefully on Thursday afternoon, November 23, 2023. The youngest of five, Natalie grew up in Jersey City where she graduated from Lincoln High School. She met her husband, Isaac DeBotton at a square dance. They started their beautiful family in Flushing, Queens, NY and later moved with their four children to Pine Brook, New Jersey where she had currently resided.
A whiz with numbers, Natalie worked for many years as a book keeper at a family owned lumber yard and Republic Tool before retiring. She enjoyed playing the piano, and Natalie and her late husband Ike were quite the couple on the ballroom dance floor. Natalie was active in her senior group later in life. She had many friends with her delightful personality, warm heart and was loved by all.
A devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Natalie’s greatest joy was her family. She hosted many a holiday gathering in her day and enjoyed seeing everyone gathered around the table. She could often be found playing games of rummy with her children and grandchildren.
Natalie is predeceased by husband Isaac, her parents Anna and David Boyarksy, and her four siblings Harold Boyarsky, Dorothy Kirshbaum, Ruth Edelson and Melvin Boyarsky. She will be sorely missed by her children - Sandra Saposnik, Debbie DeBotton (husband Ram Cohen), Linda Segal (husband Marc ), and Leonard DeBotton (wife Elizabeth), grandchildren – David Saposnik (wife Victoria), Adam Saposnik (wife Stacey), Ariella, Ayala and Omri Cohen, Jacqueline and Rachael Segal and last but not least her great grandchildren Eliana, Dylan, Noah and Kenzie Saposnik.
