Roberta F. “Bobbi” Schuman, 82, of Woodstock died Aug. 21, 2018. Bobbi was beloved by all who knew her. She was a second mom to many of her children’s friends; a devoted servant to her synagogue community; a lover of beauty and style, including tea cups and butterflies; a great cook; and a giver of comforting hugs. She was the matriarch of her family spreading seeds of love to whomever she touched and that’s the legacy she leaves. We are all better because of her.
We continue to see her shiny smile, her big blue eyes and her youthful spirit. Bobbi was preceded in death by her husband, Sidney Schuman. She is survived by many family members and friends who will miss her greatly, including her daughters, Iris Koplen (Brad) and Amy Lynch (Darren); son, Larry Schuman (Sherri); grandchildren, Sara Koplen (Blake Cannon), Garrison Koplen (Alexis), Lydia Schuman and Landon Schuman; more than 300 additional grandchildren from ARM of Care; and brother, Mel Schoychid (Myrtie).
Donations in her memory may be made to ARM (Art, Recreation, Movement) of Care, a non-profit agency using creative arts to restore and empower sex-trafficked children or to the Atlanta Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Graveside services were held Fri., Aug. 24, 2018, at Greenwood Cemetery, with Rabbi Steven Lebow officiating. Those in attendance wore blue, Bobbi’s favorite color.
