    Henrietta “Henny” Guskind, age 97, of Atlanta, died peacefully at home surrounded by family on Tuesday, August 8, 2017. She was born in Hoboken, NJ to Ida and Isadore Usdin. Henny was the youngest of five children. While living in New Jersey, she met her future husband, Sylvan S. Guskind (Sid) after he returned from military service in Europe during World War II. Henny and Sid married in January 1946 and lived in several states while Sid was in the Air Force before moving to Atlanta in 1957, where they joined with family to start a meat business and raise their family. Henny is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Judith and Arnold Ross, Johns Creek; daughter and son-in-law, Nancy and Steve Sachs, Alpharetta; grandchildren: Kevin Sachs, Atlanta and Emily Sachs, Dunwoody, as well as two great-grandchildren, Sydney Sachs and Zoey Sachs of Dunwoody. Henny was preceded in death by her husband, parents and siblings. After Sid’s death she met a wonderful gentleman, Sherman Sabel. They enjoyed a long relationship that lasted until Sherman’s passing in 2005. Henny took great joy in being a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and was devoted to her family. She had many lifelong friends and kept in touch with numerous people scattered across the country. Henny had been an active volunteer at Scottish Rite Hospital, where she was recognized as an outstanding volunteer. Her hobbies included sewing and knitting items for family and charitable donations. Henny had a keen eye for fashion and had a wonderful knack for putting together stylish, color coordinated outfits, including matching shoes. She loved to dance and enjoyed traveling with Sid and friends before his passing. Henny will be fondly remembered as a kind, gentle and loving person. She will be dearly missed by her loved ones. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the American Heart Association.
