    Muriel Goldstein Gold (April 28, 1930 - February 19, 2022)

    Muriel Goldstein Gold, born in London, England, the daughter of Lazarus & Leah Goldstein, grew up during WWII in London. During air raids, she and her family spent a lot of time in shelters. Soon after the war ended, at the age of 15, Muriel lost her mother, who had a wish for her to travel to America, which she did at the age of 18. Soon after, she ultimately made the decision to leave London and relocate to Atlanta. 
     
    Muriel worked in the office of a jewelry company in downtown Atlanta and soon met Michael Gold, a native of Bialystok, Poland. They married in January 1953 and raised three beautiful children, Lisa Smirin, of Sandy Springs, GA (husband Alan Smirin); Nick Gold, of Palm Beach, FL (husband Bram Majtlis); and Tony Gold, of Suwanee, GA (wife Christina Gold).
     
    In addition, Muriel leaves behind five grandchildren and a great granddaughter: Ashley Berfield (husband Gabe Berfield) and their daughter, Madison Berfield, Alex Smirin; Dylan, Andrew and Jordan Gold.
     
    Muriel & Michael were longtime members of Ahavath Achim Synagogue in Atlanta. Muriel enjoyed being a member of the Sisterhood and working in the gift shop.
     
    During her children’s teenage years, Muriel returned to the workforce and had a successful retail career. She first worked at Saks Fifth Avenue at Phipps Plaza in Atlanta where she became a top producing salesperson in the lingerie department, and later in the designer handbag department. After spending several years at Saks where she developed a loyal clientele, Muriel moved to Neiman Marcus at Lenox Square in Atlanta and worked in the women’s ready to wear department, and later moved to the designer handbag department. Several customers still recall their fond interactions with Muriel at Neiman’s until she retired in 1996. 
     
    After the death of Michael in July 2007, Muriel remained in the family home in Buckhead for several more years. In 2013, Muriel sold her home of 50+ years and moved to independent living at The Hallmark/The Piedmont where she became friendly with some of the residents. She had the opportunity to travel to Florida and California. 
     
    In order to be closer to family, in 2018 Muriel moved to The Somerby in Sandy Springs. When her health further declined, in July 2021 she moved to the memory care section at Legacy Ridge at Buckhead where she peacefully passed away.
     
    The family wishes to recognize and thank her caregivers - Sade Fisher and Tamara Cain - for the dedication and professional, loving care they provided.
