Eloise, Beerman

Eloise Franklin Beerman, 95, of Atlanta, passed away on Monday, April 7, 2014 at her home of over 60 years. Her beloved husband Fred Beerman, her grandson, Brad Beerman, and her brother, DeJongh Franklin, preceded her in death. She is survived by her three sons: Bruce H. Beerman and his wife, Janet, Ronald J. Beerman and his wife, Carol, and Fred H. Beerman and his wife, Mary. Numerous nieces, nephews and cousins with whom she regularly communicated until her death also survive her.  Eloise had a multitude of friends and business associates, all of whom she loved dearly. A native Atlantan who was born and raised where Turner Field now stands, Eloise graduated from the University of Alabama in 1937 and then returned home where she began her first career teaching mathematics at Hoke Smith Junior High School. She married Fred Beerman, who literally lived next door to her on Bonaventure Avenue on August 10, 1947. She retired from teaching to raise her children and was extremely active in the school affairs of each of them. After her children were in high school, she earned a real estate license and began a second career selling houses—an occupation which she continued for approximately 50 years. She was an agent with Harry Norman Realtors and, until shortly before her death, was the oldest active realtor in the city. Eloise was a life-long member of The Temple and served as President of The Temple Sisterhood and on numerous other Temple committees. After her confirmation at The Temple in 1934, she attended every yearly confirmation service there (except one) until her death and was a regular fixture at Friday night services and other holiday services. She was a formidable powerhouse of a woman who never stopped making good things happen, particularly for those whom she loved and about whom she cared. She was a most warm-hearted person who was truly loved by all who were fortunate enough to know her. Her unforgettable striking white hair, blue eyes, classy dress, and ready smile will truly be missed. Sign an online guest book at www.edressler.com.  Graveside services are scheduled for Fri., April 11 at 1:30 p.m. at Arlington Memorial Park in Sandy Springs. The family plans to receive friends and loved ones at the home of Bruce and Janet Beerman immediately following the service. The family would appreciate contributions made in Eloise’s memory to either The Breman Religious School at The Temple, 1589 Peachtree Street, N.E., Atlanta, GA 30309 or The William Breman Jewish Home, 3150 Howell Mill Road, N.W., Atlanta, GA 30327.
