Deborah "Debbie" Vokaty Obituary

Deborah Carole Vokaty, 61, of Monticello, MN passed away peacefully at her home on November 18, 2023, after a courageous seven year battle with lung cancer. 

She was born on July 5, 1962, in Buffalo, MN. She attended Hennepin Technical School for Dental Assisting. Debbie was passionate about all of her roles in the dental office through the years, especially her interactions with the patients. She worked in Big Lake for her 30+ year career at Sand Prairie Dental/Park Dental, with her final position as a Scheduling Manager. 

Debbie raised her sons in their Monticello home, full of laughter and love. She loved to dance, laugh, and was an avid reader. Her supportive and caring nature was rooted in her strong Christian faith. 

She is survived by her partner of 20 years Joe Hill; her sons Adam (Laurel) Vokaty, Mitchell Vokaty, Jeff (Jenny) Hill, and Kevin (Beth) Hill; her four grandchildren Thayer, John, Katherine, and Leland; parents Jerry and Joyce Paumen; siblings Jeff (Tami) Paumen, Lynn (Rick) Rowland, Randy Paumen; and countless nieces and nephews, cousins, family and friends.
