Mrs. Roxane Goldstein, 94, died peacefully in Atlanta Friday, Nov. 22, 2019. Born in Manhattan July 19, 1925, Roxane grew up in Norwalk, Conn., attended Oberlin College in Ohio and Black Mountain College in North Carolina, and lived in Merrick, N.Y., for 63 years until she moved to Atlanta in 2012.
A lifelong volunteer, she ran a thrift shop for the National Council of Jewish Women for 30 years and organized the Golden Age Club for homebound seniors at the Merrick Jewish Center. In her 70s she volunteered to drive older people to their medical appointments. She was passionate about the arts, was an accomplished pianist, performed in musicals as a member of a community choir, and was a gold master bridge player. She also enjoyed needlepoint, and was an avid reader and gardener, and diehard New York Mets fan.
Mrs. Goldstein was predeceased by her beloved husband Dr. George Goldstein in 1975. She is survived by her loving children Ronald (Carmen) Goldstein of Syosset, N.Y., Marcia Goldstein (Fred Levick) of Atlanta, and Bruce Goldstein of West Palm Beach, Fla.; sister Abelle Mason of Washington, D.C.; grandchildren Lauren Goldstein, Joanna Levick, Michael Goldstein and Karen Goldstein; and great-grandson Chandler Parrish.
A graveside service was held Nov. 26 at Mount Ararat Cemetery in Lindenhurst, N.Y., with Cantor Henry Rosenblum officiating. The family received visitors at the home of Ronald and Carmen Goldstein of Syosset, N.Y.
