  • OBITUARY

    Mary E. Stewart Goldstein, 89, was born June 25, 1932 in Statesboro, GA and died January 1, 2022.

    After graduating in Statesboro, she moved to Atlanta, and met Herbert Goldstein. She claimed that she “chased Herbert until he caught her”. They married in 1954 and were married 63 years when Herbert passed in 2017.

    For years, she worked side by side with Herbert in the store, “Goldstein’s,” on the Square in Downtown Marietta. 

    Her smile always lit up the room when someone she loved entered. She was generous, an avid reader and very knowledgeable.  Mary enjoyed classic movies and “I Love Lucy”. She loved to laugh at jokes!  Keeping a kosher home was imperative to her.

    Her family was her life! A devoted mother and wife. Mary and Herbert had four children who survive them: 

    Susan Goldstein, Paula Goldstein Shea, Philip M. Goldstein (Elise) and Jacob Goldstein (Lily), eight grandchildren Rachel Dodd (Eric), Joshua Avren (Meredith), Jonathan Avren, Nathan Shea (Sonja), Daniel Shea, Joseph Goldstein, David Goldstein, and Matthew Goldstein; seven great-grandchildren Amber Brooks, Donovan Brooks, Brooklyn Avren, Deacon Avren, Avren Dodd, William Dodd, and Atreyu Avren; her brother, Donald Eugene Stewart (Ann), and many nieces and nephews.  She was predeceased in 2017 by her brother, Johnny Albert Stewart (Charlotte) of Quantico, Va.

    Services will be held at Greenwood Cemetery  on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. with Rabbi Rosenthal officiating.

    Memorial donations may be made to the Alzheimer's Association, 41 Perimeter Center E #550, Atlanta, Georgia 30346,  Wellstar Tranquility at Kennesaw Mountain, 475 Dickson Ave NW, Marietta, GA 30064 or Cobb County Library Switzer Library, 266 Roswell St NE, Marietta, GA 30060.

    Susan, Paula, Philip, and Jay, My condolences to all of you on the loss of your dear mother. Susan related the story of how my Mom was the first to visit Mary after Susan was born, and it goes back farther. Our fathers knew each other at least as far back as the early 50's, before either was married. I send you all warm wishes for solace and healing.

    Dear Philip and Family, I never had the opportunity to meet your mother. However, I remember going to Cuba with you and your dad. He had pleasant stories to share. Perhaps they are peacefully together again now. May you be comforted among the mourners of Israel. Sincerely, Lynn

    I was Mary’s daughter Susan’s Girl Scout leader many years ago. In her quiet unassuming way she was always ready to help with any project. Whenever I saw her at AA, she greeted me with her serene smile and gracious manner. Her life was a blessing to her family and all who knew her.
