Dorothy Zofia Holzer, 96, of Sandy Springs passed away Thursday, Oct. 5, 2017.

She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Gilbert and Gail Holzer; her grandchildren, Corey and Talya Holzer, Tara and Ryan Goldstein, Kenneth and Caron Holzer, and Ryan and Vicki Holzer; and her great-grandchildren, Jaron, Jordy and Ella Holzer, Kaden, Lindsay, Brady and Cameron Goldstein, and Khloe and Cole Holzer.

Dorothy was born in 1921 to Sima and Gedalye Rosenberg in Rozwadow, Poland. She survived the Holocaust while hiding in Poland throughout the war with her husband of 58 years, Marian Holzer, of blessed memory. After living in Israel from 1949 to 1952, they immigrated to Montreal, where they resided until 1995, then moved to Atlanta to be closer to family. Her husband predeceased her in 1998, and she became an active member of their synagogue, Congregation B’nai Torah, of which she was always very proud.
