Marcel Schulmann
New Providence - January 29, 1926 - January 20, 2021
Dr. Marcel "Bob" Schulmann passed away in New Providence, NJ on January 20 at the age of 94. Marcel was deeply loved by all, with his infectious smile and tenderness for his family, friends and patients.
Marcel was born in Germany in 1926, but spent his early life in Florence, Italy. As a teenager, when the Germans invaded Italy, he joined the Italian Resistance. After the war, he earned his MD at the University of Florence. During this time he also worked as a radio broadcaster. Marcel moved to the US in 1952, and completed his internship at the French Hospital in New York, and residency in Orthopedic Surgery at Temple University. He later served as Chief of Orthopedics at Virtua Hospital in Mount Holly, NJ. Besides being an excellent surgeon, the thing his patients remembered most about him was his gentle and caring bedside manner.
Marcel was happily married for 57 years to his beloved wife Simone, from Aix-en-Provence. The couple met during their medical internships in New York and spent many years in Moorestown, NJ and Marco Island, FL. They loved classical music, Long Beach Island, travelling and playing bridge. Marcel was a loving and caring father and grandfather; he was an advisor, caregiver, and hand to hold when anyone needed him.
Marcel is survived by his 3 children, George Schulmann and wife Michelle, Diana Glendinning and husband John, and Marie Schulmann. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Courtney Pantle and husband Nick, Maria Schulmann, Julia Metzler, and Dylan and Michael Glendinning.
The family will gather privately. A memorial service is planned for later in the Spring. Donations may be made to the Durand Academy at Durand, Inc. 304 Birchfield Drive, Mt. Laurel, NJ 08054 ( For further information or to send the family a condolence, please visit

Dr. Schulman became a big part of my life 52 years ago . I was 15. For 2 plus years, we got to know each other pretty well; he the doctor, me the patient. It wasnt long before both families became friends. I'd like his entire family to know how sad we all are to hear of Bob's passing.He was a great man in so many ways. The entire Rigolizzo family offers our deepest respects and sympathies to all Bob's children and grand children.
