  • OBITUARY:
    Evelyn Teskey Lefkoff passed away at home peacefully at the age of 83, after a heroic battle with Amyloidosis. Diagnosed five years ago, she searched the internet for support and treatment. She discovered a support group and was able to receive treatment from the Mayo Clinic. The treatment delayed the progression of the disease giving her five more years of life. Evelyn was born and raised in Augusta, GA, daughter of Jennie Teskey and Julius Teskey, of blessed memory. An only child, Evelyn bonded with her many cousins and they remained like siblings throughout her life. She was always social and outgoing and was AZA Sweetheart of the Augusta chapter. She is survived by her husband of 65 years, Harold, whom she met in Augusta in 1950, during his medical school years. They moved to Atlanta where she devoted her life to her husband and her family. Her marriage with Harold was the selfless embodiment of love, honor, trust and devotion. Evelyn was a devoted mother and grandmother. She provided her family with energy, zest for life and guidance. She is survived by her children: Helen Lefkoff (Robert Faulk), Larry (Bundi) Lefkoff, and Craig (Faye) Lefkoff. She cherished her seven grandchildren: Alexis (Andy), Missy (Mechel), Steven (Anna), Ryan (Meredith), Julie (Bradley), Jenna and Blake. Evelyn was blessed with seven great-grandchildren, as well. Evelyn invested her life in the nurturing, love and support of her children. She raised them in a home where they could explore life confidently and have their own successes, and she leaves them very close knit. Evelyn had a flair for entertaining and hosted family and friends to dinner parties, cocktail parties, and all holidays. She loved to plan every detail, and her family relished meals that she lovingly made. She filled her home with many friends, family and guests, bringing joy to everyone. Evelyn was an ardent tennis player and enjoyed tennis with Harold, her children and her friends. She played competitively on ALTA. She was a challenging competitor at canasta and Mahjong. She was a creative talent. She wrote shows and musicals for Sisterhood groups and charity functions. She arrived at every life cycle event with a personalized tribute poem that she had written. She was an expert shopper and navigated every mall and store with precision and skill. She was always perfectly dressed and entered every room vibrant and glowing. She had a huge heart of gold, caring most about others and their needs and happiness. She had a tremendous faith in God. Her influence, her zest and enthusiasm for life, and her faith will be passed for generations through the lives of her children and grandchildren. She will be deeply missed.

    Dear Cousins, We're so sorry for your loss. Evelyn was always so gracious and warm and I can't remember a time from childhood that she wasn't a part of family or neighborhood celebrations. I will especially remember how kind Evelyn was to Tom's mother who lived across the hall from Mrs. Teskey. And I'm sure there are many besides me who benefited from Evelyn's get well visits. She will be greatly missed and thought of often. With love, Harriet and Tom and Roslyn

    Unle Harold and family: I read with a heavy heart of the amazing "Aunt Eveyln's" passing. So many beautiful pictures pass by my mind's eye as I think of her and your family. She was the life of a social gathering. Her smile and laugh were infectious--not even your special medicinal treatments, Harold. could stop those from spreading rapidly through a room! When you spoke to her, you knew she was listening. She cared deeply for my father, Larry, and his affection for her was palpable. Her devotion to her mother, Jennie Teskey, taught me in real time the values of memory and Jewish traditions. And as you said in your tribute, she dressed and always looked beautiful. Yet her inner beauty is what was always front and center and that beauty shines so brightly in her children. Your home, Uncle Harold, was always a source of laughter and it is that legacy that Aunt Evelyn leaves in this world. I am so happy I was able to know her. As you mourn her loss from this world, I pray your stories, memories and photos are a blessing and give you strength. In sympathy, Natalie Wilensky
    Judy and Paul FinkelOct 15 2017 03:25 am

    Harold, Larry, Craig, Helen and family so very sorry to just learn of Evelyn’s passing. When your family came to augusta to visit for the holidays and sat behind my family in Shul, I would look at how beautiful Evelyn was and I wanted to be like her when I grew up. She was truly a beautiful southern lady. I’m sorry that I won’t be able to attend the funeral tomorrow. I work with Dressler’s and will be assisting at a memorial service at the same time tomorrow. Sincere condolences to all. Love Reba
