POUGHQUAG – Deborah Veronica Senesi, 68, an area resident since 1987, died on November 9, 2019 at home. She previously lived in Thornwood and Pleasantville.

I was so shocked and saddened to hear of Debbie's passing. We were friends throughout our childhood as we both attended St. Thomas Aquinas Elementary School in Brooklyn, N.Y. So many memories of spending our summers at Farragut Pool and playing canasta with her mom. She had many a sleep over at my home after attending the Friday night Confraternity Dances at our parish hall. I remember the nuns telling us "make room for the holy spirit" during our slow dances with the local boys!! We then both went to St. Edmunds High School and our friendship continued through those four (4) years. We also had our first part time job together as Ward Clerks at Veterans Hospital in Manhattan on Saturdays and Sundays and that was during the time that our soldiers were coming home from the Vietnam War!!! I believe it was during that time that she realized that she wanted to become a nurse. We didn't see much of each other after high school graduation, but did meet again at St. Edmund's 50th Reunion!! It was like no time had separated us and we connected like we had never parted!! We shared so many happy years during our childhood in Flatbush. It always warmed my heart to see her so happy on Facebook and obviously surrounded by a great family who loved her dearly. I truly am sorry for your loss and I pray that all your happy memories give you strength through this difficult time. Sincerely, Donna Fiore (nee Reinhardt)

I have lovely memories of Debbie, she always had a smile and an encouraging word. I remember how caring she was to others. I was honored to make the flower arrangements for her wedding to Joe and thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her then and later. So sorry to the family on their loss of this lively and sweet lady. Prayers for you all. - Susan (Steier) Salay

Debbie has been a mentor and friend to me for many years! I'm so so sorry to hear! She always had a youthfull spirit and very dedicated to her profession and family. She talked constantly about love for her grandchildren and her sweet husband.
