Carolyn (Goldstein) Brody, 88, of Peachtree Corners, passed away peacefully due to complications related to Alzheimer’s disease with family at her side.
Carolyn was born Feb. 25, 1933 in Catskills, N.Y, and lived in New England, Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Georgia.
She was a devoted wife to Aaron and mother to her three sons and her greatest pride were her six grandchildren. She worked at various colleges in admissions and financial aid. One of her memorable achievements included spearheading a bill with the then- governor of Georgia and future U.S. president that required schools in Georgia to provide special education classes for dyslexia. And another was typing her husband’s Ph.D. thesis on a manual typewriter.
Carolyn attended thousands of her sons’ and grandchildren’s athletic and extracurricular events. She was an extraordinary cook with a volume of recipes and her favorite family meals were shrimp curry and lasagna as well as a variety of Chinese food dishes. She was an accomplished artist who displayed her works at local arts festivals.
Carolyn was predeceased by her sister Avis. She is survived by her husband Aaron; her brother Harold; three sons Stephen, Glen and Robyn; their spouses Susan and Sharon; and grandchildren Michelle, Derek, Camryn, Skyler, Natalia and Pierce.
Graveside services were held April 5 at Arlington Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, the family wishes contributions to be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Fund or the Aaron and Carolyn Brody Distinguished Lecture in Food Packaging endowment at Michigan State University. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
