    LIEBERMAN, Marilyn Klein, of Atlanta, died on February 21, 2023. She was born in The Bronx, NY on October 20, 1935 to Regina and Kalman Klein, who immigrated to the United States from Hungary before Marilyn was born. Hungarian food and language remained important to Marilyn, whose recipe for goulash was much loved and much consumed by multiple generations.

    She graduated from James Monroe High School and later met her husband Jack at her nephew’s circumcision. Jack had just returned from serving overseas and was attending his nephew’s circumcision as well. Jack’s sister had married Marilyn’s brother and Jack and Marilyn soon followed suit. Married for 56 years, the couple moved to Atlanta permanently in 1973. Marilyn’s easy adaptability to Southern life earned her the family nickname of “The Bronx Belle.” Marilyn and Jack loved to travel far and wide, whether driving an RV to see the Georgia Bulldogs play in a Sugar Bowl, renting a house in Tuscany while Jack whipped up elaborate Italian menus, or going to Israel to visit their grandchildren. After Jack died in 2012, Marilyn traveled on several cruises with his sister. She worked as an accountant for many years, including for Trilogy Group in Atlanta.

    Marilyn loved big band music, and upon arriving at her standing Friday morning appointment for a trim and color at the salon, they always switched the station to 40s Junction in her honor. With her open heart, easy laugh, and perpetually joyful demeanor, Marilyn made a deep impression on everyone who knew her. She was a second mother to many of her children’s friends as they grew up, and no number of people for dinner was ever too many to feed. Truly nothing was more important to Marilyn than family.

    She is lovingly remembered by her sister, Margie Yudko; sister-in-law Sylvia Schwartz; children Evan (Jen Poland) and Chaya (Jessica Epstein); grandchildren Ester (Ayal Kellman), Tziporah (Mordechai Rapp), Sara (Benny Wright), Akiva, Avraham, Shimon (Hilat Doron), and Ezra; her ten great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. Rabbi Pamela Gottfried will officiate the graveside service at Crestlawn Memorial Park, Friday, February 24, 2023 at 10:30 AM. Donations in Marilyn’s memory can be made to The Weber School. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.

    No one was more welcoming, accepting or warmer than Marilyn. Her home felt like an oasis and her smile as she greeted you with a hug was genuine and loving. She will be missed.
