Ruth Leiner - 5 days ago

To Shirley's family: We were saddened to learn of Shirley's passing. We were next door neighbours with your mom in Oakridge R. We spent a lot time with her either chatting on the catwalk or at the pool, or when either of us had a gathering in our condos. The highlight for her was when Irving invited her to join him for his "5 o'clock party" (inherited from my parents, Bea and Joe Abramovitz). She never refused because she knew Irving would be serving Baileys, her favourite. I frequently saw her at Cummings Centre and we would catch up on each others families. Her infectious smile will be missed. Please know we are thinking of you at this sad time. Ruth & Irving Leiner

Thinking of all of you at this sad time in your lives. We are all facing stressful times and we are urged to stay home to be safe. We feel for you and know what you are going through. You had a very special Shirley who was loved by many. Shirley was a very independent woman what a great deal of love for her family. She kept herself active and was always ready to help. She will be missed by many. Though this pandemic keeps us all apart and we cannot be with you to give you hugs and comfort you, remember all the wonderful years that you all shared together, the family occasions and events, the special milestones. I remember how happy Shirley was at Jennifer and Daniel’s wedding and how excited she was to hold her newborn great granddaughter Taylor in her arms. I know it’s hard for Rhonda being so far away in Israel and blocked from joining you...... keep in touch by technology, be strong for each other and treasure her memories in your hearts forever. Sending hugs Linda, Lauren,Aaron, Izzy and Zoe Jamie and Rosali Shirley will be missed by us all

Joan, Sean and I send you our condolencences. A complete generation has passed. I remember my lovely "Auntie Shirley" who my Baba Jennie called a "gitte Neshooma". I have had a wonderful life but I deeply regret that I was far away and not that smart and did not take the time to stay close to family. I just told Iris what a delight it was to meet you albeit during my mother's shiva. I hope that the end was peaceful and you are all okay. My regards to other members of the family. I am hopeful that after this idiotic virus passes, we will take the time to better understand the importance of family. Joan and I are hopeful that you will have the time to visit with us in California in the future. Allan

We remember Shirley so fondly. Les and I are close friends of Shirley's daughter-in-law, Florence, here in Vancouver. We first met Shirley when she visited Vancouver to celebrate the wedding of her grandson, Brian Pont, to Jessica Rothstein. Her daughter, Rhonda, son-in-law, Sami, and granddaughter, Ariella were staying at our house for the wedding. Shirley was invited over for tea. What a sweet lady, she was. We wanted to get to know her better but didn't have enough time. The next winter, while we were all in Florida, we took Shirley out for lunch. She was such a lively conversationalist, interested in all current events and, especially, in what Les and I were doing. She was blessed with a very loving family and they were blessed to have her.
