Danyse Sonya Weinberg, age 72, passed away Dec. 20, 2019, surrounded by her loving family. Danyse, as she was known to family and friends, grew up in Macon, Ga.
She graduated from the University of Georgia, where she majored in elementary education. She subsequently received her master’s in special education from Georgia State University. Danyse was a passionate educator and taught for more than 30 years in both public and private schools in the Atlanta area.
She was an avid reader, and enjoyed traveling, splitting her time between Atlanta and North Carolina. After retiring from teaching, Danyse volunteered at the Community Action Center in Sandy Springs and was actively involved in Temple Sinai.
Danyse was preceded in death by her sister Muriel Eichel and her parents Rosalie and Isadore Torch. She is survived by her husband of 49 years Larry; sister Linda; children Adam, Glen, Asher and Ivy; grandchildren Alex, Jeremy, Austin, Mackenzie, Addison, Harriet, Isaac, Rochelle, and Lilly; and a host of beloved nieces, nephews, and cousins.
The family lovingly requests no flowers, but instead, memorial contributions may be made to the Muriel Eichel Education Fund at Temple Sinai or to another charitable organization of your choice.
Funeral services were held Dec. 23, 2019, at Arlington Memorial Park in Sandy Springs with shiva following at Temple Sinai. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
