Muriel “Micki” A. Schulman, a former longtime resident of the Playa del Rey and Marina del Rey area, has died. She was 74.
Schulman, who was born April 15, 1938 in Chicago, passed away in Palm Desert following a short battle with lung cancer.
She was an entrepreneur who owned several successful businesses in the Los Angeles area in the 1980s and 90s. Schulman was known for her ongoing generosity, kind heart and limitless compassion for others, her family said.
She retired to Palm Desert in 2001 and spent much of her time giving back to others by volunteering for many organizations, including the McCallum Theatre, local libraries and The Ophelia Project, where she mentored at-risk young girls in the Coachella Valley area.
Schulman is survived by her brother Jerry, daughter Sheri Zada, son Randy Schulman, four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Her son Scott preceded her in death.
As per Schulman’s wishes, her ashes were scattered at sea in a private ceremony off Marina del Rey, where she often reflected upon her life’s journey.
She will be tremendously missed by her family, friends and all those whose hearts she touched.
