Sharon Ruth Bressler, 77, died peacefully with her children by her side July 27, 2020.

Born and raised in Atlanta, Sharon was a true lady whose signature grace, style and Southern charm will be missed by all who knew her. Her commitment to the Jewish community started with her early involvement with the Jewish Federation and Jewish Sisterhood of Atlanta, and continued through her journey with Hirsch later in life to Blue Ridge, where she and her husband helped build a Jewish community and moreover enjoyed many of their most wonderful years as husband and wife. Daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend to many, Sharon will be remembered forever.

Sharon is predeceased by her beloved husband of 53 years Hirsch Bressler of Atlanta; parents Irene and Hyman Meltz of Atlanta; sister Brenda Kushner of Atlanta; sister-in-law Ellen Mills of Atlanta; and her cherished son-in-law Andreas Schmidt of Berlin, Germany.

She is survived by her children Alan (Diane) Bressler and Jennifer Bressler; grandsons Jake Bressler and Aaron August Schmidt Bressler; as well as her adoring brother-in-law and sister-in-law Richard and Linda Bressler; and all her nieces and nephews.

Graveside services were held July 29 at Arlington Memorial Park for family only. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
