BACKGROUND: Marjorie Shuman grew
up in Detroit. Her parents, Harry and
Florence, owned a grocery store and
were active in the Jewish community.
She is a lifelong member of
Congregation Shaarey Zedek. She
recalls spending her summers at the
family cottage in Lake Orion.
Her family moved to Huntington
Woods at the beginning of her high
school education. She was graduated
from Royal Oak Dondero High School in
1958 as valedictorian. She continued
her education at the University of
Michigan, graduating magna cum laude.
After graduation, she was a French
teacher in the Birmingham Public
Schools system. As a young adult she
was active in the synagogue and
became president of the singles group.
She says the best-looking blind date of
her life was Saul Saulson, who was a
widower with two small children. When
she married him, she became an instant
wife and mother. After the children
were in school all day, she resumed her
volunteer work on a full-time basis.
In 1986, she was awarded the
United Way Heart of Gold award for her
community service. During the
ceremony she sat next to someone active
in the Detroit Symphony Orchestra Hall
(DSOH). She then began to volunteer
for that organization. Last month she
was chairman of the DSOH fashion
show. "I feel it's important to support
the arts in this day and age," she said.
Her next project will be writing
columns for Outlook magazine
beginning in June. The quarterly
magazine is published by the Women's
League for Conservative Judaism.
As for professional volunteering, she
offers some truisms: "There's only room
for one macher and a professional
volunteer is someone who gets
aggravated for free."
