Barbara Fay Millman, Originally of Cleveland, OH

Barbara Fay Millman died peacefully May 24, 2013 in Atlanta.

CandleOriginally from Cleveland, Ohio, she and her husband Saul relocated to Atlanta in 1994. Barbara was preceded in death by husband, Saul Millman, and son, Steven Speer.

She held numerous volunteer positions: at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Cleveland; with the National Council of Jewish Women; through Brandeis; and via her job at Jewish Family Services in Cleveland, whereby she aided in the assimilation of Russian immigrants into the community.

Avid lovers of travel, fine arts and education, Barbara and Saul explored the world together and frequented the theater, opera and ballet. They were the “go-to” couple for new restaurant reviews. Barbara most recently attended classes at PALS (Perimeter Adult Learning Services) and is a graduate of The Florence Melton School of Adult Learning. She was very smart and quick-witted and happiest being with and doing things for her children and grandchildren. Family was of the utmost importance, and she believed in celebrating at every opportunity.

A devoted daughter, wife, mother, grandmother and friend, Barbara is survived by children JoEllen and Alan Levy, Jim and Pam Millman and Gary and Lucy Millman; and grandchildren Alex Speer; Sara, Erica and David Levy; and James, Matthew, Erica and Olivia Millman.
