November 27, 1930 ~ January 28, 2020

Born in: Albany, NY
Resided in: Atlanta, GA

After a long and difficult illness, Mina Claire Barasch Pascaner passed away Tuesday, January
28th, 2020 at the age of 89. A master teacher who was innovative in her classroom and
mentored other teachers, Mina was simply crazy about children. She was drawn to them and
they to her. She was a respected educator in Levittown, New York for over 30 years.

An elegant and sophisticated woman, Mina graced our lives with her wit, intelligence, and high
level of emotional IQ. She was poised and thoughtful, and gave the best advice. Thanksgiving
was her favorite holiday and she was always the hostess, creating custom menus that delighted
her guests. The beach was her favorite place as it brought floods of wonderful memories of
childhood summers on Long Beach with her grandparents. She created special memories for
her own grandchildren at their beloved Sunset Beach in North Carolina, a cherished two weeks
each summer.

Post retirement in 1989, Mina and her late husband of almost 62 years, Milton, moved to
Atlanta. A love like theirs is like a rare gem; they were the most dedicated, adoring, and loyal
couple. They traveled the word together exploring museums and ruins, and then regaled their
family with their adventures.

Mina is survived by her loving and devoted children; her son, Joel and his wife Karen and her
daughter, Beth Boger and her husband, Bentley. Her greatest joys were her four grandchildren:
Jack, Olivia, and Zoe Boger & Aaron Pascaner.

We will forever carry our Mina, and her incredible generosity, affection, and love, with us.

“My mother is so full of joy and life.
I am her child, and that is better than being the child of anyone else in the world.
In all the world, there is no heart for you like mine.
In all the world, there is no love for you like mine.”
– Maya Angelou
