Bonnie Zuber Beerman, 86, of Atlanta, passed away Nov. 1, 2020, from Parkinson’s disease.
Born March 22, 1934, in Houston, Texas, she was the daughter of the late Philip and Florence Zuber of blessed memory. Growing up in Houston, Bonnie attended San Jacinto High School. While there, she was a member and president of Barnston BBG and was sweetheart of Cyrus Adler AZA. She moved to Highland Park, Ill., in 1969, and then to Atlanta in 1979.
Wherever Bonnie went, she made good friends. She was most active in ORT, holding local and regional leadership positions. An alumna of five different universities, she earned her master’s degree in social work and spent most of her career as a social worker at Jewish Family & Career Services in Atlanta.
Bonnie loved life. She relished the arts, was very creative, and kept abreast of current events. More than anything, she loved her family. She had extremely close and meaningful relationships with each family member and friends that she treated like family. Bonnie was known for the special impact that she had on every person she encountered. She exuded kindness, was grateful for her wonderful life, and loved unconditionally. She welcomed all and made everyone feel good about themselves.
She is survived by her brother and sister-in-law Gordon and Merryl Zuber of Houston, Texas; daughters and sons in-law Cindy and Howard Gibbs of Marietta, Ga., and Carol and Mark Kreditor of Dallas, Texas; grandchildren Bobby Gibbs, Sarah and Ethan Davis, Rabbi Philip Gibbs, and Rose Kreditor; great-granddaughter Maya Davis; sisters and brothers-in-law Toby and John Bridendall; Milton Edelson, Burton and Celeste Beerman; many cousins, nieces and nephews, and friends. Bonnie was predeceased by her parents Florence and Philip Zuber and her sister-in-law Louisa Edelson.
The family wants to thank her very special caregivers Betty Gullet, Bree Minnis, Shawneka McFee and Tomeka Gittens, as well as the caring staff at Huntcliff Summit.
The funeral was held Nov. 3. Due to COVID-19, the funeral was private. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Jewish Family & Career Services, 4549 Chamblee Dunwoody Road, Atlanta, GA 30338, or the charity of your choice.
