Obituary: Frances Kaplan Goodman

Frances Kaplan Goodman, of Atlanta, GA, passed away on her 90th birthday, July 27, 2016, surrounded by her immediate family.

She was born in Macon, GA on July 27, 1926 and is preceded in death by her parents, Michael and Esther Kaplan, and brother, Leonard Kaplan.

Frances attended Marjorie Webster in Washington, D.C. and was active in her family furniture business until its sale to Bassett Furniture Co. in 1969.

She became a successful real estate agent in Dallas, TX as well as Atlanta, GA. Throughout her life, she loved her family and her synagogue, particularly Temple Beth Israel in Macon and Temple Sinai in Atlanta.

She is survived by her sons, Michael (Linda) and Marty (Eileen) Friedman; daughter, Nancy Friedman Smoller; grandchildren: Leslie (David) Landau, Elliott (Heather) Friedman, Marci (Brent) Suddeth, Scott Friedman, Lauren Smoller, and Adam (Jillian) Smoller; six great-grandchildren, all of Atlanta; and a host of beloved friends and family.

Frances lived in Atlanta for the past 30 years and at Huntcliff Summit for the past eight. Strong-willed to the end, she lived life to the fullest, and was always ready to party.

A special thanks goes to her best friend and companion, Gerald Scheidt, as well as the staff at Huntcliff, Rescare HomeCare, the Pharmacists at Northridge Kroger, Weinstein Home Hospice, and the One Group. Everyone was always warm and caring and the family truly appreciates all of their support.
