SHIRLEY (SARAH) SHENKAROW (nee NEAMAN) The family of Shirley Shenkarow sadly announce the sudden death of their dearly beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother on August 14, 2001. She will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her husband Sam; her children, Marvin and Phyllis Shenkarow, Barry and Rena Shenkarow, Judy and Marshall Pollock; her grandchildren, Lori Shenkarow and Jeff Brown, Carrie and Ross Ransby, Marni and Jason Weiss, Michelle and Laurence Gilman, Mira and Matthew Narvey, Lea Pollock, Morris Shenkarow and Rana Targownik; her brother Jack Neaman and wife JoAnn; and her five great-grandchildren, Natasha, Tyler, Jessica, Gillian and Sydney. Shirley enjoyed a wonderful 56 year marriage to her husband Sam, raising three children and being the matriarch to her extended family. She was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, and a very special friend to all her family and friends, who were so many. Shirley participated in a number of community organizations including National Council of Jewish Women, Hadassah-Wizo and Combined Jewish Appeal. Shirley took pleasure from travelling with Sam, especially for the winters in Hawaii and of course for their many summers at the cottage in Winnipeg Beach. She was always full of energy, good common sense, a spirit of generosity and a love of life. She left us with memories that will be treasured in our hearts forever. Funeral services were held on Wednesday, August 15 at Shaarey Zedek Synagogue. Pallbearers were her grandsons, Morris Shenkarow, Jeff Brown, Ross Ransby, Laurence Gilman, Jason Weiss and Matthew Narvey. Shiva is being observed at 1204-255 Wellington Cres. Should you wish to make a donation in Shirleys memory, it may be made to the Shirley and Sam Shenkarow fund at The Jewish Foundation of Manitoba, C400-123 Doncaster St., Winnipeg, MB R3N 2B2 or to the charity of your choice.
