Debbie was born in Baltimore, Md., and raised in Savannah. She was a graduate of The Ohio State University and returned to Georgia, moving to Atlanta to start a family.  She was a longtime member of Congregation B’nai Torah and recently Ahavath Achim Synagogue. Debbie was a devoted daughter, sister, mother and grandmother that lived life to the fullest. She loved cooking and travel and shared her love with her family and friends, organizing family vacations, going to the theater and hosting frequent family dinners.  She brought a ray of sunshine or a hearty laugh to all who knew her. Her kindness to strangers and welcoming of friends and guests to holiday dinners was legendary and there was always enough food for one more guest. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  A graveside service was held Jan. 2, 2019, at Arlington Memorial Park, with Rabbi Laurence Rosenthal officiating. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, Atlanta, 770-451-4999.
