Deborah S. Kitay, 76, of Atlanta died Monday, April, 27, 2015.

Candle FlameDebbie, attorney at law, beloved mom, nana, sister and friend, had an opportunity to visit with family and friends before her passing, and we were all blessed with the opportunity to say goodbye. Mom was many things, but she was exceptionally happy to be nana and proud to have forged a career in law at a time when the idea of that for a wife and mother was daring. But she had the example of her own mother, the first of four generations of lawyers in our family. She was a graduate of Wellesley College and Emory University School of Law.

Surviving are daughter Terry Kitay of Marina del Rey, Calif.; son and daughter-in-law Ben and Bonnie Kitay of Alpharetta; grandchildren Zach and Hallie; brother and sister-in-law Myron Kramer and Nichea Paris; and numerous dear friends.

Graveside services were held Wednesday, April 29, at Crest Lawn Memorial Park with Rabbi Bradley Levenberg officiating. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Atlanta Legal Aid Society Inc. or Angels Among Us Pet Rescue of Alpharetta. Arrangements by H.M. Patterson & Son, Arlington Chapel.
