Jacqueline Yocheved Henriques Koplowitz passed away peacefully at home June 11, 2020. Arguably the world’s most stubborn, compassionate and practical woman, she left the world on her own terms, shortly after being read final viduy (last rites). Her final instructions to her family were to support one another and to find joy in life going forward.
Her life was devoted to helping others: providing a voice for those in want of an advocate, finding justice for those who did not have it, giving aid to those who needed it. Through her career with the Jewish Federation, AMCHA, The Retreat from violence, JF&CS, and more, she worked tirelessly to leave the world a better place than she found it – and she succeeded.
To all who were in her sphere, whether family, friends or acquaintances, she was an inspiration. She was well known for being reliable, efficient, classy, imperious, warm, caring, pragmatic, and (sigh) usually right.
She was predeceased by daughter Batsheva Koplowitz and survived by husband Gil Frank; twin sister and brother-in-law, Jennifer Phillips (Fred); brothers and sisters-in-law, Brian Motta (Mary) and Ainsley Henriques (Marjorie); daughter and son-in-law, Nechama Koplowitz (Michael Huey); and granddaughter Gavriella Koplowitz..
In lieu of flowers (which she never much enjoyed anyway) the family requests that donations be made to Jewish Family & Career Services of Atlanta or to Congregation B’nai Torah. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
