Betty Dudman Arogeti of Atlanta, Ga., passed away on Wednesday, Jan. 18, 2023, at the age of 86. Proceeded by her late husband, Ben. Betty died peacefully in her sleep surrounded by love and her family.
Betty was born in Bronx, N.Y. on Aug. 9, 1936, to father, Bernard Dudman, and mother, Bertha Eisenberg. She was the eldest sibling of her two brothers, Harold and Harvey. From a young age, she was dependable, thoughtful, incredibly positive, and very strong. After some years in the Bronx, the Dudman family briefly moved to Atlanta, but didn’t stay long as in the mid-1950’s they picked up and moved cross country to southern California. They spent several years there until the death of her beloved mother which took them back to Atlanta. And that is where she met the love of her life, Ben.
Betty and Ben got married in 1973, and, later that year, they had the first and only son, Mitchell. They spent the next years as a small family, until they welcomed Mitchell’s wife, Debbie, into the family. A little over a year later, she became a Bubbie to her first grandchild, Jordan. Over the next couple of years, she became a Bubbie two more times to Bradley and Lucy.
Betty lived a colorful life filled with laughter and positivity. She never had a bad thing to say about anyone and lived her life seeing the good in everyone. She remembered the little things and that is part of what made her the incredible woman she was. To know her was to love her, and she was loved by all. She never met a stranger, and, because of that, the world has lost a friend. However, she will live on forever in the hearts of her son, daughter-in-law, grandchildren, brothers, nieces, nephews, her cat, Jackie, and everyone who got the pleasure to know her.
Betty Arogeti’s funeral was held at Greenwood Cemetery on Jan. 20, 2023, at 10 a.m. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
