    The Hadassah Mafia of Atlanta lost a founding member on Tuesday, January 11, 2022 when made woman and good gal Sally Rosenberg passed away at 90 years old. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Sally ran books in Cleveland, Buffalo, NY and Atlanta, GA. Famously punctilious, she did her most notorious work in Atlanta for the Hadassah Mafia, where her numbers running was nearly as legendary as her kugel. Dozens of little old Jewish ladies owe their charitable careers to her way with the books and their mahjong jackpots to her lack of way with the Chinese tiles. Sally is survived by her sons, Alan and Gregg Rosenberg, whom she claimed to love equally though clearly favoring Alan. Also, her daughters-in-law Leslie and Kasia, who were in keen competition for favoritism. She absolutely adored her three grandchildren, Gunnar, Siri, and Ana Rosenberg, and sort of tolerated her grand dog Amber. Her best friends were her sisters, and her eldest sister Harriette Rubinstein survives. She is also survived by several matzah balls, some chicken soup, laughter which will echo into eternity, a veritable hoard of devoted and loving nieces and nephews and a lot of controversy about who that fart really came from. She joins in heaven her husband Donald Rosenberg, whose 20 years of peace and rest are at an end, her sisters Shirley Michael and Ruthie Fels, best friends reunited, and several pets she never really liked. There will be a graveside ceremony for all who loved her at Arlington Memorial Park, Sandy Springs, GA at 1:00 pm Friday, January 14, 2022. Arrangements by Dressler's Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.

    Mrs. Rosenberg was our across the street neighbor on Holly Lane. I was saddened to see news of her passing. She was such a special lady. To her dear son Gregg: yours was the “best“ obituary I ever read. It captured her spirit like none other. I told my own kids to take note. You did her proud. Our condolences. May you be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

  • Lori Freides

    What a wonderful woman she must have been. I love and appreciate the humor and affwction her obit was written with. I am sure the author inherited from her. May her memory always bring a an inspiration to live a good life. May her Neshama have an aliyah (I'm sure HaShem will appreciate the laughs!)

  • The Felds

    It is quite obvious that Ms. Rosenberg was an amazing mother, friend, sister, and volunteer. I wish I had known her. This was the best obituary we have ever read, both funny and inspiring! It’s obvious to us her memory will be a blessing to your family and the mafia.

  • Jewish Mama

    I didn't know Sally but this may well be the best obituary in history. May her memory be a blessing!!

  • Nan Mullman

    My dear Aunt Sally. You are the reason that the Sarles girls are in Atlanta. We came in 1977 and stayed with you till we got on our feet. Your humor was the best! You will be missed. Greg, Alan , Beth and Barbara our prayers and love go out to you! We had many great laughs with Sally. Love Nan Mullman

    Dear Rosenberg Family, Although a lifetime member of Hadassah, I never had the good luck to meet Ms. Sally, Your Obituary comments show deep love and respect for her plus a delightful sense of humor! What a wonderful long life she was able to share with all of you. May your memories continue the joy and you be comforted among the mourners of Israel. Sincerely, Lynn
