Sybil Shier died peacefully at her home Sept. 10, 2020, one day after her 83rd birthday.
Sybil was born in Miami, Fla., and grew up in Macon, Ga., where she graduated from A.L. Miller High School in 1955. Her parents were Rae Shier and Isadore Shier. Sybil retired from the State of Georgia as one of the first computer programmers for the state. She was a wonderful tennis player. After her retirement, she took up jogging and ran in the Peachtree Road Race from 1993 through 2010. She loved PBS, watching old classic movies and was a season ticket holder at The Atlanta Opera.
She was the beloved aunt of Lynn Hassett, Robyn Shier (who predeceased her) and Scott Shier, of Atlanta. She was the sister of Sidney Shier of New York City and sister-in-law of Jackie Kanfer of Atlanta. She will be remembered and missed by her many cousins and friends who cherished her good-natured sweetness.
In her memory, please consider making a donation to PBS, The Atlanta Opera or a charity of your choice. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
