    Minnie Silver Kaliser, age 98, of Atlanta passed away peacefully on February 12, 2017. At the age of 98. Minnie was born on June 5, 1918 in Poland and immigrated to the United States in 1920 at the age of 2. She grew up in Atlanta, GA as the youngest of five Gilner siblings. She graduated Commercial High School in Atlanta in 1935. In 1939, she met the love of her life, Ben Silver, and moved to Hawkinsville, Georgia where she lived a beautiful and loving life and raised their three children, Milton, Lynn and Alan. Minnie and Ben ran Silverís Department Store and were pillars of this small community in central Georgia. Minnie moved back to Atlanta in 1972, after Ben passed away. She was a member of Ahavath Achim Synagogue for over fifty years. She married Mike Kaliser at the age of 62 and lived a wonderful life with him. In her mid- 90s, she moved into Hammond Glen, where she lived her life with Gusto until the end. She was a charismatic woman who was the life of the party wherever she was. Everyone she touched loved Minnie because she was MINNIE. She is survived by her children: Estelle Silver, Chicago; Lynn and Bill Hare, Atlanta; Alan and Janice Silver, Miami, her grandchildren, Erica Silver, Steve and Johanna Silver, Beth and Rob Lowe, and her great grandchildren, Ally and Ben Silver and Hannah and Rachel Lowe; also many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her son, Milton Silver, of blessed memory. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations in Minnieís memory be sent to Temple Sinai or the Ahavath Achim Synagogue in Atlanta.

    Dear Lynn and Bill, I was so sad to hear the news that Mother had passed away. She was so resilient, it is hard to believe. Minnie was a devoted and wonderful mother, grandmother and great - grandmother who will be greatly missed. I have so many fond memories of her for over 50 years and will always remember what a special and charasmatic woman she was. Milton and I loved her very much! Love, Estelle

    My heart is so heavy upon hearing the news of the loss of "Aunt" Minnie. I have so many very fond memories of her and "Uncle" Ben and their close friendship with my family. I was inspired by the pictures and posts by Lynn of her continued full life. She will be missed by so many, and I consider myself one of those. Love and hugs to the family! Nan Lippincott

    Growing up knowing Minnie was wonderful. She was always cheerful and fun. I was always happy she and my mother were good friends and enjoyed her as I became an adult. She sure lived a fabulous, happy and engaging life. Proud to have known her! May all the good memories be of comfort and in your hearts forever. She will be remembered with love!
