Obituary: Rosalyn Joann “Roz” Wilensky Cohen

Rosalyn Joann “Roz” Wilensky Cohen left this earth at her home May 31, 2020.

Rosalyn Joann “Roz” Wilensky Cohen, 76, born in Atlanta, Ga., left this earth at her home May 31, 2020, in Marietta, Ga. Roz loved her husband of 54 years, daughter, son, grandchildren, extended family and friends more than anything. She let us know this every day, even when our attitudes and behaviors were under her scrutiny. We know we can do anything and are all stronger from her love. Roz worked at Piedmont Hospital and retired after almost 30 years, cherishing her relationships with professionals and patients alike. She took pride in making us latkes that we ate right out of the frying pan that never made it to the table and showed us her discipline and strength striding through the Peachtree Road Race year after year. “Get a move on, you have it in you, and don’t worry about getting credit.”

We miss her, boy do we miss her, and love her as much as she loved us all.
Rosalyn is preceded in death by her parents Julius and Ida Brody Wilensky. She is survived by her husband Martin W. Cohen of Marietta; children Alison Jordan (Jay) of Marietta, and Ethan Cohen (Jacqueline) of Castle Rock, Colo.; grandchildren Marcus Worth Cohen, Benjamin Samuel Jordan, Blythe Kay Cohen, and Nathan Charles Jordan; sister Sherry Dawkins (Pete); brother Alan Wilensky (Coralie); brother-in-law Michael Cohen (Lynda); sister-in-law Judy Cohen; and many nieces and nephews.

Funeral services were held June 2. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
