    SHIRLEY BLAINE - It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of an amazing human being our Mom, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Aunt, Great Aunt and dear friend to many. Shirley passed peacefully on the evening of March 8th, surrounded by her family.

    Shirley was an avid golfer, a huge fan of theater, symphony, and the world of art. She loved to travel the world, and was a strong supporter of our homeland Israel and the Jewish community of Atlanta. Above all, Shirley was the loving Matriarch of her beautiful family that she loved and cared for beyond anything else. 

    Shirley was a successful businesswoman whose Company - Age of Travel - received accolades and recognition as an industry leader in an ever changing world of travel.  She lived a life of inclusivity and befriended all good people she came across.

    Shirley is survived by her Daughters Sara Blaine Rotenberg (Mendy), Barbara McRee, Wendy Owens (Bill), her Grandchildren Bryan Owens (Emily), Jeff Solomon (Mitzi), Shaun Rotenberg (Katie), Stefanie Owens, Kelley McRee, Jennifer Cuellar (Albert), Dayna Khadoury (Solly), and Scott McRee (Justine). Her Great Grandchildren, Gia, Aubree, Sofie, Jack, Ben, Nate, Lexie, Cole, Wyatt, Tyson, Simon, Dean, Gabe, Maddox, Aron, Elliotte and Finn and her special friend Stan Katz.

    Shirley will no doubt be greeted in heaven by the true love of her life Sol Blaine who has been patiently waiting for her since May, 2002.

    Shirley was predeceased by her granddaughter Tyson McRee, her brother Leonard Rabb and her sister Vickie Deutsch.

    Funeral services will be graveside at Arlington Memorial Park on Sunday, March 12th at 3:00pm - on what would have been the celebration of her 97th birthday.  Services will be officiated by Rabbi Peter Berg.

    In Lieu of flowers, please direct  donations to The Alfred and Adele Davis Academy.

    To all the Blaine family, I am so grateful to have known such a delightful, caring woman. Shirley and Sol were such great friends with my parents and now they can share some laughs together in heaven. May time heal the grief of Shirley's passing. What a fabulous life she lived.

  • Layne Zimmerman

    I have known Shirley since I was a child and our families shared times together, but I want to honor her for her generosity, love and support. After a difficult era in my life, she generously gave me a job at Age of Travel. She was patient and tolerant of me, and gave me wonderful advice when I was struggling with family issues. I've never known another woman with her zest for life: for family and friends, for travel.Sending my love to Sara, Barbara and Wendy.

  • Ed Haskins

    I can not tell you how sorry I was to hear about shirley. I was shocked and saddened by the news. Those we love can never be more than I thought away.. for as long as there is a memory. They live in your hearts forever. Please accept my sincere sympathy for the loss of Shirley she was a special woman.

  • Jennifer Bell

    Shirley was one of the most dynamic people I’ve ever met. I had the privilege to be her nail technician after Covid hit. It’s amazing how well you can get to know someone when you sit face to face holding their hands for hours every two weeks. I’m known to be slow but I may have intentionally made her visit’s longer. She always treated me as an equal, even friend. We would discuss current events, love, loss, financial investments, children and grandchildren. I’m not sure if she knew, but she imparted me with so much wisdom. I will always be grateful for my time with Shirley Blaine.

    What a remarkable, warm, lovely, vivacious woman. It was a joy to know her, from the 54 years ago when she planned our honeymoon travel, to the recent pleasure of seeing her at the symphony. We're grateful to have known her. May she rest in peace.
