Marcille Kaufman Pollack was born in New Orleans, LA on March 14, 1927 to Joseph Kaufman and Jenny Hirsch Kaufman, died in Ann Arbor, MI on March 9, 2021. Marcille (nee Miriam Sylvia) was raised in Miami Beach, where she would eventually meet and marry Irwin Pollack. She graduated from Florida State University in 1948 with a BS in math education. Following her marriage to Irwin Pollack in 1949, she taught briefly but then followed her husband's career from San Diego to Washington DC where their three children were born. The family spent an impactful 15 months in Holland and Cambridge University in the early 1960’s. After the Pollacks moved to Ann Arbor in 1963, she earned an MA from University of Michigan in counseling in 1970. Their travels took them to Japan, New Zealand, China, San Diego and Cambridge, Mass. Marcille volunteered for the University Hospital in Ann Arbor, the Washtenaw Jewish News, and Hadassah. Sadly, at the age of 70 she developed a relapsing neurological disorder making her wheelchair-bound for many years under the devoted care of her husband.

Marcille is survived by her three children Sharron (m. Joe Weixlmann), Phyllis, and Stanley. She was a wonderfully generous and active grandmother to her grandchildren Dave Metz (m. Juliette Wallack), Sarah Metz Krissoff (m. Austin), Seth Weixlmann, Adira Weixlmann (fiancé Tyler Browne), and Ben Weixlmann (m. Brittany) as well as great-grandson Paxton Metz. She was predeceased by her beloved husband of 71 years just six weeks prior. They were (life) members of Beth Israel Congregation since 1963. Marcille leaves a wonderful legacy of kindness, caring, love and devotion.

Metro Detroit’s Jewish funeral homes have agreed that families should follow the directive of Centers for Disease Control and restrict the size of gatherings to no more than 50 for an outdoor service or 25 for an indoor service.

For now, in-person funeral attendance will be limited to only immediate family. Otherwise, funerals may be viewed live and recorded on chapel websites.
