    Ruth Marcus Rados

    92, Atlanta

    Ruth Marcus Rados was born in Brooklyn, NY, to parents Chana and Ezra Schwartz. She passed away peacefully at home on June 27.  She lived most of her life in New Jersey.  She was a teacher and in her later years worked in the Montclair Art Museum, in New Jersey, as well as having her own catering business.  She moved to Atlanta to be near family in 1998, but continued to read the New York Times daily. She was known for being strong and intelligent, and many who knew her describe her as a fighter who lived each day fully.  Her favorite verse was "This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it."  She often signed cards "one day at a time."

    Ruth was predeceased by her husband Walter Rados and her daughter Susanne Marcus Collins. She is survived by her son Frederick Marcus, his wife Nancy, granddaughters Chana Marcus, Shira Goldsmith, Rachel Collins, and grandsons Joseph Marcus and Martin Collins, as well as nieces and nephews.  She was a well-loved member of Congregation Shearith Israel.  In addition to her family, she has a large circle of friends who will miss her.  

    A memorial service will be held at Dressler's Jewish Funeral Care on Thursday, June 29 at 10 am followed by a graveside service at Arlington Cemetery. Rabbi Albert Slomovitz and Rabbi Ari Kaiman will be officiating.  Shiva will be that evening at the home of Evan and Sara Loft, 245 Camden Rd., Atlanta, GA 30309, at 7:00 pm. In Ruth’s memory, please make donations to the Weinstein Hospice.

    Ruth was gracious, funny, smart, engaged, and a wonderful and loyal friend for more than 30 years. We will miss her (and her amazing rugelach!) and always be comforted by the memory of her lovely laughter and gift for telling great stories.

  • Amy Medford

    In my life, Ruth was always such an important part of our family. Ruth was one of our mother and fathers Doris & Jerry Medford’s dearest friend (portrait on wall behind us). Ruth remained as our family’s “matriarch” after our mother passed. She will always be a beautiful voice in my head providing guidance and love. I will miss her. We will all miss her.
