Lynne Weinberger GoldmanMarch 28, 1934 ~ January 24, 2018 (age 83)
Lynne Weinberger Goldman passed away peacefully at home on January 24, 2018, at the age of 83. She was the beloved wife of the late Jerome L. Goldman for 59 years. Lynne grew up in New Orleans – the city she adored. Her life was filled with joy, love and loss. She lost her brother Scott when she was very young, her father, Dr. Herbert Weinberger, when she was in high school at Isidore Newman School, and in 1990 she experienced the tragic loss of her cherished daughter Leah. Her close relationship with her precious mother Emma Annette would provide a tremendous amount of love, support and friendship through the years. In her youth Lynne studied drama at Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh, then returned to New Orleans to perform roles at The Gallery Circle Theater and Le Petite Theatre. She met and married Jerome in 1954, and together they would travel the world. Their abiding love and devotion was the hallmark of Lynne’s life. At home she supported the New Orleans community by volunteering for multiple organizations, including WYES, Audubon Zoo, Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, and New Orleans Museum of Art. In addition to her love of attending the theatre, Lynne collaborated in the writing and production of the play Cherries Jubilee. Lynne’s gift of gab, incredible intellect, and heartfelt generosity provided her with the love of lifelong friends and family, whose lives she blessed everyday. She will be missed. She is survived by her children: Anne Goldman Brinkley of Austin, TX (Dr. Douglas Brinkley), Hope Goldman Meyer of New Orleans (James Meyer), and Edward Karp of New Orleans (Anne-Marie Karp and their daughter Nina), and was mother of the late Leah Goldman Karp. She is also survived by six grandchildren who loved and admired their Mimi: Benjamin Karp, Jeremy Meyer, Emma Meyer, Benton Brinkley, Johnathan Brinkley, and Cassady Brinkley. Lynne’s family wishes to extend sincere appreciation and love to the following people who enhanced the quality of her life: Ivory Clark, Erline Dukes, Mary Fefie, Benjamin (BJ) Johnson, Brigitte Madison, Jodice Peters, Theresa Simmons, and Patricia Sweetwyne. A memorial service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 28, at Temple Sinai, officiated by Rabbis Edward Paul Cohn and Matthew Reimer. Reception to follow.
