    Edith Usdan passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 24, 2021. She was 97 years old.

    Edith was the daughter of Fannie and Benjamin Engel and was born and raised in Brooklyn N.Y. After graduating from Erasmus High School, she worked as a pocketbook buyer for a consortium of department stores. She married the love of her life, David Usdan, in 1948 and they raised their family in Great Neck, N.Y.

    Edith was predeceased by David Usdan, her loving husband of 56 years and her beloved daughter, Barbara Usdan Goldberg, who passed away in 2012.

    She is survived by her brother Dr. Milton (Joyce) Engel, her children William (Susan) Usdan and her son in law, Dr. Richard Goldberg.

    She was a loving grandmother to Matthew (Candace) Goldberg, Gabriel (Mallorie) Goldberg and Michael Usdan. Her Great Grandchildren are Britton and Hayden Goldberg.

    Edith was very active in several charities, chairing major fundraisers for Hadassah, ORT and UJA. She loved to dance, travel and play golf.

    The Usdan family would like to thank her devoted caregiver, Joyce Thompson, for providing love and kindness to her for the past 11 years. We would like to also thank the wonderful Drs., nurses and CNAs that cared for her at The Wm. Breman Jewish Home.

    Interment at Beth David Cemetery in Elmont, New York.

    A private Shiva will be observed in New York. Those wishing to honor Edith’s memory may consider donations to The Wm Breman Jewish Home in Atlanta, Congregation B’nai Torah of Atlanta, or a charity of your choice.
