Karen Zuckerman Soll
April 16, 1945 – January 12, 2021
KAREN ZUCKERMAN SOLL, a lifelong resident of New Orleans, passed away peacefully in her home on January 12, 2021. She was 75.
A graduate of Fortier High School, Karen was dedicated to her community, having belonged to Congregations Chevra Thilim, Beth Israel and Gates of Prayer, and a lifetime member of Hadassah Women’s Organization, a member of Women’s American ORT, and active in the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans as a distinguished Lion of Judah.
Always devoted to her family, Karen is survived by her husband of over 55 years, Dr. Edward Lee Soll of Philadelphia and her three children and their spouses Michael (Stacey), Shea (Michelle) and Gregg (Ellen), and eight grandchildren, Aaron, David, Lauren, Maya, Reyna, Julien, Ada and Eliza, and her sister Esther Shaiman (Bert, deceased) of Philadelphia. She is predeceased by her parents Martin and Rebecca Herman Zuckerman and sister Fay Parnes (Stanley, deceased). During her years-long battle with cancer Karen appreciated the care and treatment she received from Dr. Jayne Gurtler, her staff, the numerous other medical professionals and other caregivers who were committed to helping her. For the majority of the time during her cancer fight, Karen found joy including an epic family trip to Israel, summers in Colorado, cruises around the world, family mitzvoth and more. Her endurance was our blessing.

However, we are pleased that your participation will be possible via internet broadcast link at https://www.gatesofprayer.org/live-stream.html on Thursday, January 14th at 1:00 PM.
