Barbara Wendy Ziff, 68, died Oct. 10, 2019.

Barbara Wendy Ziff, 68, died Oct. 10. She lived her life in color, a bold personality befitting her keen sense of style. She was an entrepreneur and an artist, displaying her creativity by opening an iconic store in East Cobb in the 1980s called Glitz.

Barbara grew up in Dayton, Ohio, and moved to Atlanta after college. Here she met her husband, Tom. Barbara was lucky to have great friends who loved her ability to “Tell it like it was” and appreciated her loyalty during good and bad times.

Twenty years ago, she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Despite years of living in pain, she had a love for life and people admired her strength and ability to always put herself together.

She was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother and will be truly missed. Survivors include her loving husband, Thomas Ziff of 45 years; son and daughter-in-law David Ziff and Julia Tiessen of Atlanta; daughter and son-in-law Erin and Jake Slosburg of Houston, Texas; grandchildren Philip and Esther Slosburg; sister, Debbie (Bruce) Nelson of Marietta; nephews and cousins; and her beloved dog Simon.
