Obituary: Jane Betty Zion Yudelson, 88

Jane Betty Zion Yudelson, beloved wife, loving mother and dear friend to many, passed away surrounded by loving family Friday, May 29, 2015.

She was born Aug. 15, 1926, in Atlantic City, N.J., to Lillian and Bernie Zion, both of blessed memory. She grew up in Philadelphia and moved to Atlanta when she married Harold in 1948. Jane received a B.F.A. in painting from the University of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. She met Harold at Penn in an art history class. Harold told the professor he got more out of the class than any other course he ever took — he got a bride. Jane not only helped Harold pass the class, but she also was the love of his life and his help mate throughout their long, fruitful marriage. Jane was an accomplished artist whose paintings were seen in juried shows and her Buckhead gallery.

She is survived by her adoring husband of almost 67 years, Harold Yudelson; her sister, Helen Thatcher; her three daughters, Robin Rosenberg (Fred), Terry Stetzner (Bill) and Karen Sandler (Joe); six grandchildren, Jason Taylor (Kirsten) and Ted Taylor (Tami), Ben Rosenberg (Annie) and Pete Rosenberg (Debi), and Nora and Eli Sandler; and seven great-grandchildren.
