Selma W. (Weinstein) Kutner
Selma W. Kutner, 89, passed away on Tuesday, December 5, 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia. A longtime resident of West Hartford, CT, she moved to Atlanta with her late husband, Saul S. Kutner, to live closer to family. Born Selma Weinstein on December 25, 1927, in Brooklyn, NY, Selma was the first child of Ukrainian Jewish Immigrants. She spent her childhood and her early adult years in Brooklyn, where she graduated from Brooklyn College. It was there that she met her husband of 52 years. She lived with Saul and their three daughters in a number of cities across the northeast, including Boston, Providence and Wilmington, DE, before settling in West Hartford, CT. Selma had a long and fruitful career in education, teaching children across the grade levels with a specialization in gifted education and touching the lives of hundreds of students across a career that spanned five decades. She remained active and sociable even after suffering a stroke in 2009, never losing the love of life that stood out to all who knew her. Selma is preceded in death by her husband, Saul Kutner, daughter, Ellen Kutner and brother, Bernard Weinstein. She is survived by daughter Charna Hicks and son-in-law Gregory Hicks of Woodstock, GA, daughter Naomi Kutner of Powder Springs, GA and grandchildren James and Elizabeth Hicks. Selma’s family would like to extend a special thanks to the staff at the William Breman Jewish Home in Atlanta for their tireless work in caring for Selma since 2009. Her final years would have been neither as comfortable nor as joyous without them. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 am on Friday, December 8, 2017 in the Chapel of the Weinstein Mortuary, 640 Farmington Ave., Hartford, CT with Rabbi James Rosen officiating. Interment will follow in the Beth El Temple Cemetery, 51 Jackson St., Avon, CT. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Selma’s name to the Jewish Association for Community Living of Hartford, CT, an organization Selma helped found.
