Obituary Condolences

Joan Halperin Rabin

1952 - 2015 MARIETTA GA. Joan Halperin Rabin, loving wife, mother, grandmother-to-be, and sister was born on June 27, 1952 to Dorothy and Henry Halperin in Pittsfield, Mass. She passed peacefully and comfortably on February 13, 2015. After attending Cazenovia College, she became a Special Education Teacher in the Boston Public School System. She married Dan in 1981 and focused on family and raising three daughters: Sarah, Michelle and Stephanie. After moving to Marietta, Ga. in 1993, Joan worked as a teacher at The Epstein School and later at The Davis Academy. She also worked at the Etz Chaim pre-school and religious school and volunteered at many community agencies. She most recently was volunteering at the MDE School several days a week. She found fostering love and care within her family, working with children, and giving back to the community most fulfilling. Joan survived pancreatic cancer in 2005 and since that time she lived by the motto "it's not the number of years in your life, but the life in your years." She and Dan spent as much time as possible at family occasions anywhere in the world and travelled extensively together and with friends and family. Each trip revealed Joan's keen photographic skills with a focus on people and children in their native home environment. Joan always took the time to see and appreciate the beauty in nature and her surroundings whether a beach sunset or a bird on her bird feeders. Survivors include her husband Dan; daughter, Sarah in Atlanta, daughter and son-in-law, Michelle and David Manne in Atlanta, daughter and son-in-law, Stephanie and Gilad Moyal in Vancouver, B.C.; brother and sister-in-law, Keith Halperin and Karen Grabow in Minneapolis, Minnn.; and brother and sister-in-law, David Halperin and Carol Schifman, in Traverse City, Mich. Sign on line guest book at www.edressler.com. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to Etz Chaim Synagogue, Marietta, Ga. for the Joan Rabin Memorial Youth Fund. May her memory forever be a blessing. Joan will be laid to rest February 15, 2015 at 3 p.m. at Arlington Memorial Park officiated by Rabbi Shalom Lewis. Arrangements by DRESSLER'S JEWISH FUNERAL CARE, Atlanta (770) 451-4999.
