    Mary Davis Hornís, wonderful, difficult and loving 100-year life came to an end on February 5, 2013. She was born Mariska Kohn on September 1, 1912 to Jozsef and Geza, of Blessed Memory, in Hajdunasas, Hungary. Two of her older sisters, Margaret and Helen, preceded her in coming to the US and became her sponsors for a visit to America Ė a roundtrip ticket that would become a one-way journey. Mariska stayed in New York City and married Irving Davis. Their first two children, Robert and Sidney, were born in NY. They relocated to Charleston, SC before twin sons, Ronald and Richard, were born. And so the family that got started in NY as Eastern European Jewish immigrants took on a Southern flavor. It took many years for the children to recognize how difficult it was for her to leave her parents when she was not yet 17 years old and never see them again. Her marriage to Irving ended with his death in 1953 at the age of 47 from cancer and collateral illness. In 1972, her son, Richie, was struck by a vehicle while living in CA. He did not survive the accident and his family grieves the tragic, senseless loss to this day. While Mariska had several personal relationships after Irvingís death, the most durable one was a marriage to Solomon Horn in 1961. She spent many years with Sol and helped raise his three daughters, Janice, Sheila and Pearl. A wonderful matriarch and grandmother and in addition to Bob (Joan), Sid, and Ronnie (Susie Williams), she has nine grandchildren: Anna, Riva, Esther, Joel, Leah, Andrew and Stephanie Davis, along with Michelle and Jennifer Williams-Davis. At last count, she has fifteen great-grandchildren. An online guestbook is available at Contributions in her memory may be made to The Fountainview Center for Alzheimerís Disease, 2631 N. Druid Hills Rd., Atlanta, GA 30329, or to the Jewish Tower, 3160 Howell Mill Rd., Atlanta, GA 30327. Graveside services will be 3:00 PM, Thursday, February 7, 2013 at the Maryville Cemetery of Synagogue Emanu-El in Charleston, SC. Rabbi Adam Rosenbaum will officiate.

    My thoughts are with you Sid, Bob, Ronnie, Esther, Anna, Riva, and your entire family at this most difficult time. Marishka was indeed a matriarch of the family, strong with a great sense of humor and attitude. She was loved by all. Her smile infectious. It was indeed a pleasure to have known her. May her soul rest in peace. Charlotte Janis
