    SUZANNE ESTHER PINTO DAVIDSON Suzanne Davidson, age 91, of Alpharetta, passed away on December 28, 2017. She is survived by her daughter, Linda (Melvyn) Padawer of Germantown, TN; her son, Perry (Debbi) Davidson of Alpharetta, GA; four wonderful grandchildren: Bryan Shai Padawer of Memphis, TN; Shelby (Adam) Wald of Merrick, NY; and Travis Scott Davidson and Alyssa Joy Davidson both of Alpharetta, GA; great-grandson, Isaac Joel Wald of Merrick, NY; brother, Dr. Albert (Rosalyn) Pinto, of Atlanta, GA; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews, including her dear first cousin, Vicki Grosswald of Alpharetta, GA, who was like a sister to her. She was preceded in death by her husband, Jerome Davidson, and her mother and father, Julia and Perez Pinto, of blessed memory. Ms. Davidson was born on October 12, 1926 in Atlanta, but earlier in her life, spent time in Haddonfield, NJ; Montgomery, AL; and Memphis, TN, before moving back to Atlanta in 2014 to be close to her son, brother and their families. Family was very important to Suzanne, and she loved them dearly. She also had a big heart and loved to help other people. While in Memphis, she was very active at Temple Israel and Hadassah. She loved playing Canasta and volunteering as an usher at the Orpheum Theatre. She was a very talented seamstress, making tailored clothing and beautiful bedspreads and draperies for friends and family. She made receiving blankets for all her grandchildren and for her great-grandson, Isaac. She also used her sewing talents at her synagogue where she made ornate costumes for holiday programs, like Purim. Suzanne loved to cook and entertain, making Sephardic dishes such as borekas, pastelles, and spinach phyllo triangles. At the holiday season, she would often make apple pies, sweet pastries, and mandel bread for friends as well as for the doctors and nurses who took care of her late husband, Jerry. She would proudly put these treats into boxes to deliver to friends, and once, she even packed an entire suitcase of goodies to bring to Atlanta. After retiring from the State of Alabama as a secretary, Suzanne enjoyed traveling to places such as Branson, MO and Opryland and abroad to Israel, Europe, Asia, the Panama Canal, and Alaska, either with her husband, Jerry, or with her good friends, Karen Davis and Rita Fiduccia. Suzanne will be missed greatly. The family would like to express their appreciation to the staff at Brickmont Assisted Living and Agape Hospice for their loving care. Sign online guestbook: Graveside services will be held 2:30 PM Sunday at Greenwood Cemetery, with Rabbi Hayyim Kassorla officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Temple Israel in Memphis, National Kidney Foundation, or the American Heart Association. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
