    Although I had not seen Shirley or “the girls” in many years, they have not and will not be forgotten. My sympathy to Marilyn and Nancy and their families at this sad time.
    Regards,
    Lindy

    Since it was by choice rather than by family ties that Shirley was always Aunt Shirl to me I will always remember the influences she had in my life and will always remember her as the love she was.

    Shirley was one of a kind. I grew up knowing her and Jake. My dad, who was in the oil business, thought the world of them and likewise. Shirley was wonderful to my mom also. We really enjoyed having Shirley spend some of the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays with us when she could. She always was gracious with her compliments for our family and we really appreciated her friendship and love. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Shirley’s family who she was very proud of and spoke of fondly.

    I knew Shirley from YNHH. She always made me smile, especially when she address me or ask for me as “the pretty one” to the chagrin of my coworkers. It became our joke, just between us.
    I will miss her cheerfulness, sense of humor and kindness.
    My sincere condolences to her family.

    Heartfelt condolences from the entire Evans/Feldman family. The Rubin and Evans families were blessed with a friendship that spanned generations. We were all connected by our parents’ love, our neigborhood ( what a block!) , steadfast friendships and devotion among our parents, our mutual love of the arts and theater, the infamous birthday club, and the many hilarious stories and beautiful memories we will always cherish. We will always remember Shirley with much love.

    When I moved to the New Haven area, I reconnected with Shirley who was a dear, dear friend of my aunt, Violet Lapides. Through the years, Shirley and I would have lunch periodically and discuss books, her children and grand-daughter and my youth when I would come up from New York City and visit my New Haven cousins.
    My heartfelt condolences to Marilyn, Nancy and family.
    She will be remembered for her caring and loving ways!

    I will not forget her sincerety and honesty. Shirley was a rare and true friend who appreciated everything you did for her. She knew what difficulty was and tried to ease any difficulty I had. She knew how to make me laugh and wanted to know how I was doing. She let me call her “grandma” even though we were not related. She always wanted me to visit or take her out for a “bite to eat.” You knew she had your back and complimented me regularly. Above all she loved the library and all the books I helped her select for her reading. She loved to read and she loved this library that I manage. She reminded me how many years she had been coming to the Piantino Library and how much she loved it.
    I extend to Shirley’s family and friends my sincere and heartfelt condolences. I will not forget Shirley for all her kindnesses and support.
