Beatrice (Jaffe) Schulman

Beatrice Jaffe Schulman, 98, daughter of the late Nathan and Mary Jaffe of Lebanon, CT, passed away on Friday, March 20, 2015. Beatrice was predeceased by her beloved husband, George Schulman, and their infant son, Mark Allen, as well as sisters Molly, Lena and Hannah, and brother Milton.

Beatrice is survived by her loving son, Myron Schulman and his wife, Shelley; her grandchildren and their families – Jason Schulman and his wife, Kim; Michael Schulman and his wife, Rebecca, and their son, Noah; and Jonathan Schulman and his wife, Jamie, and their two sons, Parker and Tristan. She is also survived by her sister and dearest friend, Marian Major; nephew, Alan Major; nephew Mel Sandler and his wife, Leni, and their family; and nephew Irwin Sandler and his wife, Linda, and their family.

Grandma Bea, as she was tenderly called, was a kind and gentle woman who was cherished by all who knew her. She had a very sweet demeanor and her most important priority was to provide a warm, nurturing home life for her beloved husband and son. Grandma Bea especially enjoyed reminiscing about her happy memories of the family farm in Lebanon, the treasured honor of being made valedictorian of her high school class at Bacon Academy in Colchester, playing a fun game of Casino, baking delicious treats and preparing special favorites for those she loved, and most especially, watching her three adored grandsons grow up next door to her over a 20-year span of time. She was never too busy or too tired to attend to their wants or needs.

The family wishes to express their heartfelt gratitude to the staff of Hebrew HealthCare for the extraordinary care and kindness provided over the past 7 ½ years. We extend special thanks to Helen Steiner, Kathy Small, RN, and Beatrice’s three primary caregivers, Yvette Acosta, Michelle Thomas and Stephane Cleary. We are also grateful to the staff of Hebrew Health Hospice for providing comfort and support during her final days.

A graveside funeral service for Beatrice will be held on Sunday, March 22, 2015 at 11:00 am at the Beth Hillel Synagogue Cemetery, Wolcott Road, East Granby, CT. The memorial period will begin at the home of Myron & Shelley Schulman immediately following Sunday’s service, and will continue through Tuesday, March 24, 2015.

The family requests, in lieu of flowers, that memorial donations be made in Beatrice’s name to Hebrew HealthCare, Attn: Development, 1 Abrahms Blvd, West Hartford, CT, 06117 - 860.523.3994.
