This is a sad day. Shirley (& Alvin, of course)has been a dear family friend since the middle of the last century. Our family lived next door in a semi detached house and my parents & Alvin & Shirley were as thick as thieves from day one. It was a bond that endured through good times & bad in large part due to Shirley's warmth & unrelenting effervescence.

That bond will continue to make us smile, but on this day we convey our sincere condolences to Alvin,David, Stuart, Ilene & family.

So sorry for your loss. Shirley was such a funny and fun woman and I looked forward to seeing her every Tuesday and Thursday before she exercised with our trainer Ross, at the Myerberg .
Since she stopped coming to the Myerberg I think of her often. May she Rest In Peace.


Ilene Merenbloom
Jul 12, 2019 09:28 AM

Alvin and family,
Elliot and I were so sorry to learn of Shirley’s passing. Shirley had a long history with my family. She was the flower girl in my parents’ wedding (Mary and Rube Shofer) and, her parents Bob and Beck Bloom, were long-time friends of my parents.

When my Mom passed away four years ago, Shirley, along with her aide, visited me during shiva. Walking was difficult for her, but her need to visit me was paramount. I will always remember her visit.

When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. We hope the wonderful memories you and your family shared with Shirley will sustain you and provide strength during this difficult time.
