Chana Rymberg Bermann, 74, passed away after a lengthy fight against pancreatic cancer on Oct. 9, 2018. She was preceded in death by her late husband, Manfred, and her son, Julian.
Besides spending time with her family, Chana loved to travel, knit, volunteer at the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Alliance Theatre, and play bingo. She had just returned from her final solo trip to the Panama Canal this past summer. Chana was born in Siberia, immigrated to Israel after World War II with her parents, Kiva and Rachel Rymberg, and then immigrated to New York in her late teens. She married and had two children during her 15 years in NY. She and her family moved to Atlanta in 1974, where she remained for the rest of her life.
She leaves behind her daughter, Fredricka and Philip Kahn; her beloved grandchildren, Jared and Jenna, Ron and Roz Levy; her friends; former co-workers from Jewish Family & Career Services; and her fellow volunteers at the Atlanta Symphony and Alliance Theatre.
