Christina “Christy” Saltstein (Roth)
Christina “Christy” Roth Saltstein, of Armonk, NY died suddenly on Friday, July 17, 2020, while on vacation, at The Outer Banks Hospital. She was 46.
She was the beloved wife of 21 years to her best friend, Douglas Saltstein, and the loving and devoted mother of her two beautiful children Fred and Ella.
Born in Baltimore, MD, she was the daughter of Richard and Linda Beck Roth of Baltimore.
After graduating from Johnson and Wales University in Providence Rhode Island, Christy moved to Princeton and began a long career with Hyatt Hotels. She worked in the IT departments at many of their properties throughout the United States.
Christy had the wonderful ability to combine her take charge attitude with her giant heart and affect real change in the world. After a family accident, Christy helped create the non-profit, Stayin’ Alive, to benefit the local first responders as a thank you for their efforts during Hurricane Sandy. Along with her son, Christy raised money for and traveled with Bridges to Community to build schools in La Guama, Dominican Republic. She also gave real sweat equity to raise money for Cycle Survival to benefit Memorial Sloan Kettering.
Christy was a force of nature! Her bright blue eyes and giant smile were irresistible. To all who knew her, Christy was a loving and devoted friend. Her home was always open to visitors and she enjoyed spending time with her many friends. Christy always had time to help a neighbor and never said “no” to a friend or stranger in need.
Most important to Christy was her family. She adored her husband, Doug, and their children Fred and Ella. Together they created many happy memories. She especially treasured time with her parents and all of her extended family.
Christy loved a spirited conversation, a full glass of wine, an intense work-out, a worthy cause, a quiet evening with family, family vacations, and late nights filled with friends and laughter. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
In addition to her husband, children and parents, she is also survived by her sister Karen Roth Newell and her husband Craig of Ellicott City, MD and her brother Richard Roth Jr. and his wife Megan of Annapolis, and many nieces, nephews, extended family and numerous friends.
Due to the current pandemic the family is holding a private service and interment.
Her family and friends will be able to view a livestreamed service on August 8, 2020 beginning at 7:15 PM when we will all be able to have “Cocktails for Christy” and celebrate her life, spirit and love for all.
The livestream will be viewable through the video panel below the text of her obituary at the time of the celebration.
