Dear Howard (still Butchie to me), Karen, and Lewis. Although it has been almost 48 years since I was last in your house on Abbott I still have such fond memories of your mother.

Bonnie Chodos - 25 days ago

Dear Karen and Gary, please accept my heartfelt condolences on the passing of your dear sweet Mom. She was a pillar of Yiddishkeit at JPPS, her entire being was brimming with love for her students and teaching by example of how to be a true Mentsch. Her kindness and caring made her a standout teacher for many children including my two sons. It was always a pleasure to share lunch duty with her! Her memory will always be a blessing.

I have such fond memories of this special lady. Shirley touched so many lives during her Wednesday afternoons volunteering at Auberge Shalom. She would come to play with the children, but so often the moms would stay as she was so welcoming. Shirley seemed to bring out the best in everyone. As Child Care Worker I learned so much from Shirley. I will always hold special memories of our time together in my heart. I hope all the family find comforted knowing that their loved one lived life sharing her love and kindness whole heartedly.

Jeremy Pinchuk - 30 days ago

I was extremely sad to hear about Shirley’s passing. Lererin Soreh was my Yiddish teacher in Grade 1 at JPPS, and I still remember her as one of the earliest and biggest influences on the direction my life would take. Of course she taught Yiddish, which I still speak over 30 years later. But more importantly, she taught kindness and empathy. Even at that young age, she taught us about social issues and social justice. I ran into her a few years ago and I’m glad I took the opportunity then to tell her about the huge impact she had had on my life all those years ago. I’m sure you know that she loved her students, but I hope you know that we loved her too, and her memory will live on in us.

Miriam Cohen - 30 days ago

I am so sorry to read of Shirley's passing. she is one of the nicest, kindest people I ever knew, a woman with genuine empathy and love of Yiddishkeit. May her memory be blessed and serve as a source of comfort to the family. Baruch Dayan Emet!' with love, Miriam Cohen

Marsha Milstock - 30 days ago

Shirley was and always will be loved, admired by many. Our boys were fortunate to have Shirley as their Yiddish teacher at JPPS. They immediately gravitated to her warm smile, loving nature, and enthusiasm for life. Shirley also worked as the Arts and Craft director at the YCC. Her enthusiasm once again was witnessed by all who came in contact with her. Her program was quite unique at the time as she introduced beautiful junk to the staff and children (recyclable materials )and all had a whole lot of fun making art. Shirley was the epitome of kindness, sincerity, patience.... She was tireless when she had a job to do. And what ever she did, she put her all into it. We are so very sorry for your loss. She will be remembered by many as she left an incredible impression on all of us. H

Arlene Segal - 30 days ago

Dear Family, I knew Shirley from around 35 years ago at YCC, where she taught A&C, I was the Camp Office Manager, and we shared adjacent rooms in the Summit Girls Rec Hall. She was a lovely and warm-person and I enjoyed her company very much. It was wonderful watching her in action in 'her' art room with the campers as I had been an A&C specialist in day camps some years previously and liked to drop in there. May your memories of her love and her life well-lived sustain you at this difficult time.

To the entire family, my deepest condolences on the loss of your mother, mother-in-law and Bubby. To me she was auntie Shirley, a special, kind and caring person with not a bad bone in her body. She always took the time to check in on how things were going with everyone and she actually listened. I looked forward to always receiving her handwritten cards that would come in the mail with a beautiful message. We always enjoyed having her at our table for holiday dinners or celebrations and she was so appreciative to be included. She will be missed by everyone and will be a role model for her family to follow going forward. xo

Ira Salman - about 1 month ago

To the family of Shirley Nozetz, Shirley was my art teacher at the Y Country Camp (YCC) in 1984 when I was 9 years old. It was my first summer away from home. My mother, who was also named Shirley, was undergoing chemo treatments for breast cancer, and I being still quite young was obviously quite effected by what was going on back in Montreal. Shirley helped me to better cope with what I was feeling by helping me to create various art projects, which included a very thoughtful card for my mother. Her presence in the Arts & Crafts cabin, and the patience and kindness that she showed to be at a time when I most definitely needed it/that left a strong impression on my young heart and mind. It was only years later, when I met her in the Snowdon area where she was by then living, that we made the connection that we had been neighbours on Abbott (we lived close to the bend where Abbott crossed with Major). May her memory be a blessing for all of you that knew and loved her. Ira Salman

My deep condolences to Shirley’ family. I knew Shirley at JPPS although we worked at different branches. I met her again in her ‘Bubbie” role when her grandchildren attended the CPE at Hebrew Foundation School. Shirley was truly exceptional....her warmth, openness and love of her family, her students and people in general shone out of her eyes. One could not help loving her. How fortunate you are as her family to have had her in your lives. She leaves an admirable legacy of menchlichkeit.

To Shirley’s family, I had the privilege of working with Shirley at JPPS and was witness to her incredible love for her students and her subject. Her gentle voice and demeanour, her warmth, her smile and her total devotion to her profession, to her students, and to the institution were evident in her daily work. It was a pleasure to supervise her at JPPS, always open to learning and willing to do more. I was privileged to again be with her in the Day Programme at Cummings where her sweetness and gentleness remained her primary attributes. Her life was a blessing to so many....her memory will certainly be one too.

Dear Karen, Lewis, Sheila, Beverly, and extended family, Enid and I are sorry to hear of Cousin Shirley’s passing. We remember her so fondly from childhood especially when she and our mom would go out together. They often looked like sisters from afar with the same build and page boy hairstyle. We attributed that to the wonderful Schecter genes. And in recent years, the Cousins Club took on a special meaning for us and a reminder of how lucky we were to still have each other and a link to our mother. May her memory be a blessing to you all. BDE. Terry Shatner and Enid Shatner.

So sad to hear of her passing! "Lererin Sara" was one of my first Yiddish teachers at JPPS and she was such an amazing teacher, really instilled a love for the Yiddish language in all her young students. She will be missed!

To Shirley's entire family, I am so very sorry to learn of Shirley's passing away. I felt privileged to be a JPPS colleague of Shirley's, and our friendship continued outside the classroom. She was beloved and respected by all, as one could not meet a kinder soul.

Karen and Gary,Beverly and family- just wanted to send my condolences. I remember so many conversations I had with Shirley when I came to her house to play with Karen. While waiting for Karen's piano lessons to be over , I would have many fun conversations with Shirley as I ate delicious Chinese Chews.
