Victoria Cadranel passed away March 6, 2021, in the loving care of her family and friends at the end of a beautiful life well lived.
Victoria, Queen V or Vickie as many knew her, was born Oct. 10, 1926; she grew up in Montgomery, Ala., and moved to Atlanta when she married Nace, her loving husband for 44 years. Everywhere Vickie went she created deep and lasting friendships.
Her generous, loving, feisty and effusive spirit touched everyone she met from Montgomery to Los Angeles to Atlanta, to her beloved Congregation Or VeShalom and the Anne Frank museum, where she dedicated so much time and energy, and finally to the staff and caregivers at The William Breman Jewish Home, where she was endeared to all.
Vickie was very passionate about bringing her family together to enjoy her delicious Sephardic cooking, admired qualities and skills she handed down to her children and grandchildren. Whether it was a Friday Shabbat, a high holiday or Thanksgiving meal, her weekly card games with friends, or just a last-minute supper, Vickie loved playing hostess and entertaining all who graced her home.
The world changes from year to year, our lives from day to day, but the love and memory of you shall never pass away.
Victoria is survived by her children Kathie (Stevie) Alhadeff, Elaine (Steve) Katzman, and Steven (Janet) Cadranel; grandchildren Marlene (Jamie) Green, Lisa Duffey, Aaron (Julia Sisti) Katzman, Sarah Katzman, Michael Katzman (Deanna Paul), Lauren Cadranel, Heather Alhadeff (Miguel Christie), Naomi Alhadeff (Ryan Stutzman), and Noah (Batel) Alhadeff; 10 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and close friends.
Victoria was preceded in death by her husband Nace Cadranel; parents Sam and Leah Beton; brothers Solomon and Morris Beton; sisters Katherine Beton and Belina Beton Hasson; and grandson Adam Cadranel.
