Dorothy K. Schulman passed away peacefully on the morning of November 2, 2018.

She was a larger than life personality whose mahjong friends gave her the nickname “The General.” She loved animals, doing needlepoint and ceramics, and collecting wildlife art.

She was a Louisville native and graduate of Atherton High School. She married her beloved husband, Howard K. Schulman in 1959. He preceded her in death in December of 2017.  She was also predeceased by her parents, Ben and Bessie Kroopkin.

One of her passions was breeding, showing, and judging purebred dogs. She was active as a licensed judge with the American Kennel Club for many years, and she bred and owned numerous top-winning Collies, Doberman Pinschers, and Lhasa Apsos.

Dorothy’s greatest pride was her 3 sons and her 4 grandchildren. She was always happy to tell everyone about their many talents and accomplishments.

She is survived by her sons Harry “Butch” Schulman (Robin), Thomas Schulman (Madison), Brian Schulman (Noël); and her grandchildren Benjamin Schulman, Halle Schulman, Matthew Schulman, and Emily Schulman.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to either The Collie Health Fondation, or the Doberman Pinscher Health Foundation.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Monday, November 5, 2018 at Herman Meyer & Son, Inc., 1338 Ellison Avenue, with visitation beginning at 10 am. Interment will follow at Adath Jeshurun Cemetery.
