Anna Globe, 98, died Dec. 25, 2018 in Atlanta. Born in Pinsk, Poland, on Aug. 23, 1920, Anna was a survivor of the Auschwitz concentration camp during the Holocaust. On April 12, 1940, she married Jonas Globe and moved to Italy. They had one daughter, Betty, and eventually settled in Tulsa, OK.

Without any knowledge of the English language, but wanting to help her family, Anna used the skills she had, and spent her early career as a seamstress. With education of paramount importance, Anna later received a master’s degree, and eventually influenced hundreds of children as a Russian and German teacher for more than 40 years. Anna was an active member of her synagogue and the local Jewish community. She was an avid reader, and cherished time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Survivors include her granddaughter, Jeannie Ullman (Rich); grandson, Dan Rimland (Allison); and great-grandchildren, Claire, Sophie, Jack, and Lucy Ullman, and Grady and Audrey Rimland. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Israel Children’s Cancer Foundation, 141 Washington Ave. #205, Lawrence, NY 11559. A graveside service was held Dec. 31, 2018, at Arlington Memorial Park, with Rabbi Neil Sandler officiating. Arrangements made by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
