Marcia Diane Rothschild, 67, of Atlanta died Sunday morning, April 19, 2015, in a one-car crash.
Marcia was born Oct. 13, 1947, in Atlanta, the daughter of Rabbi Jacob and Mrs. Janice Rothschild. She graduated from the Westminster Schools in Atlanta and Simmons College in Boston and received her master’s degree in early childhood learning from Georgia State University. Marcia began her career as a special education teacher in public schools and was a counselor for learning disabilities. Throughout her life, she exhibited exceptional language skills, which led her to a second career as an editor with emphasis in translated scholarly works. Marcia inherited her father’s sense of humor, both her grandmothers’ strengths of character, and her mother’s analytical skills. She enjoyed adult Jewish learning sessions, including Torah study, at The Temple and elsewhere. She was a loyal friend to many, and she will be missed.
Marcia is survived by her mother, Janice Rothschild Blumberg; her brother and his wife, Bill and Brenda Rothschild; and her nephew, Jacob Rothschild.
