    Betty Barocas Roistacher (Hebrew name: Rivkah Bat Schmuel Yitzhak), of Atlanta, GA passed away peacefully on July 28, 2023 just shy of her 90th birthday. Betty was surrounded by a loving family in her final months.

    A New York native, Betty came to Atlanta in 1953 from Washington, DC with her husband Bernie who predeceased her in 1988.

    Betty was a loving daughter to her Parents, Sam and Louise Barocas, a wonderful sister to her siblings, Renee Stein(deceased), Ervin Barocas(deceased), and Victor Barocas who resides in Johns Creek, GA.

    Betty is survived by her 3 children: Samuel (Gayle) Roistacher of Chattanooga, Lisa R. Fishman (Mark) of Alpharetta and Louis (Ellen) Roistacher of Atlanta. She is also survived by 5 Beautiful Grandchildren: Angie, Rachael, Amanda, Rebecca, and Shana as well as 4 Great Grandchildren: McKenzie, Andrew, Easton, and Blakely.

    Betty was a lifelong member of Congregation OrVeshalom and was extremely proud of her Jewish and Sephardic heritage. An avid reader on Spirituality, Betty enjoyed uplifting others with her positive energy and marvelous sense of humor. Betty had a very strong work ethic, not only as an incredible Homemaker but as an Interior Decorator, and Office Manager working and driving into her early eighties.

    Betty was the true center and “glue” of her family, often the one who entertained and gathered everyone together for so many celebrations. Her giving spirit, warm sense of humor and unbridled love for family will surely be missed by all who knew her.

    Graveside services will be held at Greenwood Cemetery on July 30, 2023 at 10:30AM by Rabbi Mark H. Kunis officiating. To honor Betty’s memory, donations can be made to Congregation Shaarei Shamayim or Weinstein Hospice.

    am so so sorry about beautiful Betty. She was an amazing lady.

  • Mark Serra

    Betty was my godmother, a spare mother, guide and caring "aunt." I will miss her presence, her optimism, her humor and deft way of dealing with the difficult. She taught us all decorum, insisted we express compassion, and expected more from us than we thought we were capable of achieving. But she was right, and we are all the better for it. And to her credit, and pension for the extreme, she said she would loan me a dress to get out of going to Vietnam! I couldn't have asked for more than that, from a godmother, or anyone. She was a mensch.

  • Sara Grosswald
