SHELLEY ANTEL It is with great sadness that the family of Shelley Antel announces her sudden passing on Monday, May 21, 2012, in Vancouver after a short battle with cancer at the age of 60. Shelley will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered by her parents Oscar and Bella, her daughters Dana and Elly Chmelnitsky, her brothers Jack (Avis) and Joel (Bonnie), nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, cousins, and friends. Shelley was born on October 1, 1951, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Shelley grew up in the North End of Winnipeg and attended I.L. Peretz School and Garden City Collegiate. She was a devoted single mother who loved, supported, and inspired her children. Shelley always enjoyed winter vacations in Palm Springs and Florida and Shabbat dinners with her family. She went back to school when her children were young to complete her Master's degree at University of Manitoba. Shelley had a successful career in Quality Assurance that took her to San Francisco and Vancouver in her 50s. Even though she was far away from her family and friends, Shelley regularly stayed connected with everyone. She cherished her family as well as lifelong friends, her children's friends, and making new friends more recently playing bridge and joining a book club. Shelley always had a positive outlook on life. She enjoyed the simple things including shopping, coffee with friends, high tea, and celebrating birthdays and special occasions with party sandwiches and Jeanne's cake. A special thank you to her friends and family who were there for her during her illness and to those who have continued to be supportive. Donations can be made in Shelley's memory to the Canadian Cancer Society or another charity of your choosing.
