Jeanette Shulman, a retired hospital social worker who formerly operated a South Baltimore grocery story, died Saturday of a stroke at the Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center and Hospital, where she was a resident. She was 83.
Services for Mrs. Shulman were being held today at the Sol Levinson & Bros. Funeral Home, 6010 Reisterstown Road.
From 1964 to her retirement in 1975, she was a social worker for the former South Baltimore General Hospital -- now Harbor Hospital Center.
A native of Baltimore, the former Jeanette Schochet was a graduate of Western High School in the 1920s.
At the age of 65, Mrs. Shulman was named a pioneer by The Evening Sun for being one of the first people to live in the Inner Harbor renewal area at the Christ Church Harbor Apartments for the elderly.
