In Loving Memory of

Barbara L Goldstein

March 12th, 2023


Barbara Lynn Goldstein, beloved mother, cherished wife, treasured grandmother, shrewd businesswoman and social butterfly passed away on March 12, 2023, in Ventnor, New Jersey, her “special place” at the age of 71.

She was born Barbara Lynn Frank on August 14, 1951, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Carl and Patsy Frank, and the sister of David Frank. She graduated from Lower Merion High School in 1969 and then attended Drexel University. She soon married and followed her husband to Potomac, Maryland where she opened, The Shoeloft, a successful women’s shoe store. She worked in the industry for over 10 years, opening 8 stores in total; and becoming rather well known in the Washington area.

Shortly after her grandchildren, Chloe, and Ellie, were born, Barbara moved to New York with her husband Bob as she wanted to be as close to her grandchildren as possible. Becoming a grandmother was her greatest joy.

Eventually, Barbara and Bob started splitting their time between Florida and “The Shore” enjoying golf, bridge and entertaining both family and friends. Wherever they went, her family was sure to follow for every winter, spring, and summer vacation.

She has left a loving family behind. They include her daughters, Stephanie Blumstein and Abby Blank, and her precious grandchildren, Chloe and Ellie Blumstein, her brother, David and his wife Ellen Frank, and their children, Matthew and Sydney Frank. She is also survived by her stepchildren, Mark and Josh Goldstein and their families.

Graveside services will be held at the Beth Israel Cemetery, 6804 Black Horse Pike, Egg Harbor Twp. on Tuesday March 14th at 11:00 am. For those who cannot attend, a live stream of services are being offered at for the opportunity to join and honor our loved one.

Arrangements by J.S. Goldstein.
