Jane Morris Scheinfeld, 66

Jane Morris Scheinfeld, age 66, of Atlanta died on May 10, 2015, following her strong battle with ovarian cancer.  Jane was preceded in death by her perfect, as she would tell you, parents, Rae andCandle Flame Ralph Morris. She is survived by her husband of 45 years and best friend since their first date 50 years ago, Harry Scheinfeld, her daughter, Emily Scheinfeld, and son, Nathan Scheinfeld, her sisters and brothers-in-law, Louise and Alan Weintraub, Amy Paulin and Ira Schuman, Shari and Fred Thomson, and Gail and Carl Fazio, her uncle, Abe Besser, and her loving birth mother, Alice Paulin. Jane, or Janie, to many, was past president of B’nai B’rith Women from 1975-1977 and life member thereafter. She was also an active member of Deborah BBG during her teen years, Hadassah, and Ahavath Achim Sisterhood. After becoming an avid Buckeye, she earned a Masters degree in Special Education from Georgia State University. Those who knew her can attest to both her passion and compassion, making her a beloved teacher and colleague for 35 years. Jane was outgoing, caring, honest, and loving to those in her life, which she showed through her texts, emails with that coupon you were looking for, shopping trips, and that greeting card with just the right words. She cherished her extensive family, including her grand-puppies, and valued her heritage, culture, and the city she lived in and experienced as fully as she could. She taught us what it means to be Jewish, Southern, strong, and a mother. Despite her schedules for DisneyWorld and after-school activities, she showed her family how to live life and to laugh, loudly and unapologetically. Maybe most importantly, she exemplified what it means to be good. Sign on-line guestbook:  Graveside services will be held, 11:30 am, on Wednesday, May 13 at Arlington Memorial Park with Rabbi Neil Sandler officiating.  In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Jane’s honor to Thinking about Tomorrow, an organization dedicated to ensuring at-risk youths receive the best education they can.
