Millicent Berle Kleinman, 94, born July 28, 1926, passed away on May 5, 2021, at her home in Moreland Hills.
Millicent was the beloved wife of Allan Kleinman, who will turn 100 later this month; and mother of Reed (Pamela Blake) Kleinman (deceased) of Moreland Hills, Lindsay (Aaron) Miller of Chevy Chase, Md., and Nancy Kleinman of Cabin John, Md.

Millicent was born in Detroit and attended the University of Michigan. In 1969, she graduated from the Western Reserve University (now Case Western Reserve University) with a Bachelor of Science degree in interior design, a career in which she would later excel. A member of Anshe Chesed Fairmount Temple, Millicent was an avid gardener, extraordinary cook and with her husband, Allan, of 74 years, an adventurous world traveler. Above all, she brought extraordinary joy and love to those who were fortunate enough to know her.
May her memory be a blessing and an example of a life lived fully, completely and filled with love.
