    Eileen F. Silverman of Sandy Springs, GA passed away on April 30, 2017. Eileen was born in the Bronx, NY to Anna J. and Lawrence Fields (both of blessed memory) on February 24, 1936. She moved to Atlanta with her family at the age of seven. Eileen attended and graduated from Henry Grady High School in 1953. At age 13 she met Bobby Silverman, who was then 14. They became attracted to each other immediately and five years later they married. That marriage lasted 62 plus years and the two of them had three sons. Eileen volunteered her time throughout her life to include serving as President of the Atlanta Chapter of Hadassah. An avid lover of the arts, movies, music, and literature, she was a constant inspiration for the entire family. Her astute consciousness for the greater good will never be forgotten. While she enjoyed a long career in the Real Estate business as an agent at her brother’s real estate company, Fields Realty, her greatest passion was being a loving wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin and best friend to so many. Eileen is survived by her husband, Bob; children: Rick and Kathi of San Bruno, CA, Cary and Judy of Atlanta, GA, and Alan and Bonnie of Marietta, GA; grandchildren: Brandon, Phillip (of blessed memory), Jeremy and Laura; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and close friends. She will be missed by all who knew her, but they will remember her forever. The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation to Rose Stewart and Francine Shaw for their unwavering love and compassion in caring for Eileen.

    Bob and Cary, Alan and Rick: I was very sorry to hear of Eileen's passing. I will forever remember "Mrs. Silverman" as a warm, fun and bright woman who always embraced us obnoxious teenagers with open arms and a ready smile.

    I was so sorry to hear of Eileen's passing and my thoughts and prayers go to the family. She was the nicest person to me. Bobby, I'm sure you know the story but I want to share with the rest of the family her thoughtfulness. Because I was with her the morning her father died, she showed her appreciation to me by sending a generous and special thoughtful gift every year at Christmas. It would be the first I received every year. When I thanked her and suggested that I had been thanked abundantly she said "Doris, I will never stop. It continued for over 40 years. I know this was Eileen and she touched many in the same way. My tears continue in abundance.

    From the first day I arrived in Atlanta the entire Silverman family welcomed me into their home and their lives. I am eternally grateful to all of them who made me feel so welcome. Eileen was a special person with a kindness and compassion that is unparalled. I am just heart broken. Sending love and healing thoughts to the entire family.

    Cindy KLEIN HOROWITZ May 1 2017 07:44 pm
    Eileen was truly loved by the Klein family. I can't really remember a time when the Silverman family was not intertwined with our family in some way. I am especially grateful that my mother always had such a dear,loving and special friend with whom she could share everything!! I will really miss calling my mother and having her tell me she has to call me back because she was talking to Eileen on the other line, as happened at least weekly for the past 25 years! Sending lots of love to the entire Silverman family!
    Barbara LevitasMay 1 2017 06:56 pm

    I have very fond memories seeing Eileen in Jerry's office when I worked with him in the promotional merchandise business back in the mid 80's. She was always such a gracious lady. May she rest in peace.
