Dear Shapiro Family,
Atrium residents and staff were so very sorry to hear that Shirley had passed away. She was a lovely resident and shared so many wonderful stories of her life with us. She enjoyed the music programs we had here and she will be dearly missed.

Shirley will always be my “other” wonderful mother. I have so many memories of the family time we shared together. It would be hard to top her natural grandmother skills, beautiful paintings, and of course her delicious matzo ball soup. We miss you Grandma Shirl ❤️
