Elaine Shapiro, 93, passed away peacefully Feb. 9, 2020. She was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., the daughter of Benjamin and Rae Levy. She met the love of her life, Morris, at the Labor Day Dance in Columbus, Ga., and they married six months later, Feb. 8, 1948.

Elaine loved her days in Columbus, where she was involved in the synagogue in every way. She never missed an event or a trip to the beach. When she and Morris moved to Atlanta, she cherished every moment spent with her grandchildren.
They had a wonderful family, including Sherry (Barry), Stan (Cheryl), Debbi (Randy) and Rae (Louis); eight loving grandchildren: Benjamin Kaplan, Perrin and Adam Shapiro, Jeremy (Kelly) and Brian Chartash, Sam, Matthew (Chelsea) and Taylor Weintraub; and great-grandson Max Chartash.

We will remember her brisket, chocolate cake and especially the warmth of her smile.

A funeral service was held Feb. 11 at Congregation Etz Chaim in Marietta with burial immediately following at Arlington Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Etz Chaim, Congregation Beth Shalom or Weinstein Hospice. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
