Harold YUDELSON Obituary
YUDELSON, Harold D. Harold D Yudelson, age 92, passed away on November 21, 2016. He was born in Atlanta to the late Sol and Anne Spielberger Yudelson, both of blessed memory. Harold embodied the southern ideal of someone who never knew a stranger, and his family and friends reveled in his warmth, generosity and spirited opinions. Harold served in the US Army, First Infantry Division as a First Lieutenant during World War II. He was wounded in Germany and awarded the Purple Heart. A Boy's High graduate, Harold was attending the University of Pennsylvania when he enlisted in the Army. After the war, he returned to finish his studies at Penn ("We got back a little late, we're the class of '48!"), where he would meet the love of his life, the late Jane Betty Zion Yudelson, of blessed memory, to whom he was married for nearly 67 years. Harold was a successful businessman who took a profound interest in anything to do with Atlanta. He loved the city and delighted in its civic and cultural growth. He served as the Chair of the Board of the Wren's Nest, and as President of Atlanta ORT, and was actively involved in several other civic organizations over the years.
