It is with great sorrow that the family of Salomeia (Shulamith) Schlick announces her death on 15 January 2020 at the age of 86. She is survived by her devoted husband Haim who so lovingly and beautifully cared for Shula; children Tamar, Yaël and Daphne; her sons in law Rick Solway, Glenn Willmott, and Joshua Winterfield; her nephew Ilan and cousin Yosi; and her grandchildren Sabina, Daniel and Rafael.
Salomeia was Professor Emerita and Distinguished Professor at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Detroit Mercy. Appointed to Visiting Professorships allover the globe—Israel, France, Germany, Japan, and Italy—she enthusiastically combined research and travel, making friends and forming life-long collaborations with colleagues abroad. Her research in the field of polymer and membrane science was widely valued. Her long list of awards, grants and fellowships includes numerous National Science Foundation Awards for Exceptional Creativity in Research, the Maria Sklodowska-Curie Medal from the Polish Radiation Research Society, the Founders’Fellowship of the American Association of University Women, and an Honorary Doctorate from Linköping University, Sweden.
Born in the small Romanian town of Podu Iloaiei, Salomeia (nee Iosipovici) emigrated to Israel in 1951, and later moved to the United States, where she settled permanently in 1973. A lover of classical music, art and literature, she inspired us through her never-ending intellectual curiosity. Her warmth and joie de vivre enriched our lives enormously. We will miss her terribly.
