Deborah Robertson Obituary

Ms. Deborah A. Cecere Robertson, 58, entered the heavenly kingdom on Sunday, October 29, 2023.

We respectfully request that no one arrive at the funeral home prior to the posted visitation times, so as not to intrude on the family’s private time. 

Family and friends are invited to the memorial visitation in the Kowalski Funeral Home, 515 Roselle Street, Linden on Wednesday, November 8th. from 6:00-8:00PM.  During the visitation at 6:45PM, there will be a prayer service offered by Revered Bryan Wolf.  The cremation in Rosehill Crematory, Linden was private.  Please omit flowers.  Donations in Deborah’s memory may be made to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, 13770 Noel Road, Suite 8018, Dallas, Texas 75380.

Deborah, the daughter of the late Marlene Ostrouch Cecere and the late Domenick Cecere was a lifelong “Jersey Girl”.  She grew up in Roselle Park and lived in Maplewood and Middlesex for many years before settling in Linden seven years ago.

Deborah was a cosmetologist for over twenty-seven years working in various salons in the area.  She did it all; makeup, skin care and nails, but her specialty was working with client’s hair.  She retired from her career in 2018.

Throughout her life, Deborah loved to cook, and of course, Italian food was always on the forefront of her cuisine.  Whether she made up the recipes as she went along or took them from the Food Network she avidly watched, everyone who had a seat at her table was in for a treat.  Deborah also had a kind and tender heart for animals, especially rescue dogs and she adopted a number of them over the years.  Her dogs gave her love and companionship and she in turn gave them an excellent home.  It was always a “win win” situation.  Even with all of this, Deborah’s life was truly devoted to her sons and nothing gave her greater joy in this world than spending time with them.  She was a devoted Mother, in the true sense of the word. 

Predeceased by her two sisters, Anna La Ferrara and LeeAnn Cecere, Deborah is survived by her two sons, Brandon M. Robertson and Dylan C. Robertson; her brothers and sisters, Anthony Cecere, Jeffrey Cecere, Michelle Cecere and Donna La Ferrara and her numerous nieces, nephews, neighbors and friends.

Deborah was the shining light for her family that matched the brilliance of her smile.  Hearts are broken and tears fill their eyes with this great loss.  Please keep Deborah’s family in your hearts, your minds, but especially in your prayers.   May Deborah always be remembered with love.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
