    ALICE SINGER SHAPIRO (1944-2023)

    Alice Shapiro, 79, of Atlanta, died early Friday morning on July 14, 2023. She was a loving mother and grandmother, a former classroom teacher, and a lifelong activist in the Jewish community. Alice grew up in Columbus, Georgia, enjoyed summers at Camp Ramah, and later attended Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, where she majored in English. For decades, she worked as vice president of her family business, Singer & Company, while raising three young children as a single parent. She later served as chair of the board of advisors of Weinstein Hospice, as well as a board member of the Epstein School (which her parents Sol and Ruth Singer helped found), and as a steadfast volunteer at the William Breman Jewish Home, where she served as the head of the Women’s Auxiliary and helped run the gift shop. Her passions included needlepoint, cooking delicious meals for family gatherings, walking with friends, reading, enjoying games of mah-jong, vacationing with family, and traveling the world with her late husband Dr. Terry Shapiro, to whom she was married for 25 wonderful years. She was adored as a generous person who gave her time, energy, love and resources to her family and to everyone around her.

    Alice is predeceased by her sister Sharon and brother-in-law Neil Norry of Rochester and parents Sol and Ruth Singer of Atlanta. She leaves behind her brother Eric Singer (Eileen Sherman) of Atlanta, children David Pinsky of Athens, Dina Pinsky (Mikael Elsila) of Philadelphia and Mark Pinsky (Melissa) of Marietta and her grandchildren Sol and Ilan Elsila and Andrew and Joshua Pinsky, plus many nieces, nephews, cousins and other loving family.

    Donations can be made to Weinstein Hospice, the William Breman Jewish Home and the Epstein School. Services will be held at 1 p.m. on Sunday, July 16, 2023, at Dressler’s Funeral Home followed by a burial at Arlington Memorial Park with her nephew Rabbi Hillel Norry officiating.

    Dear Mark, Dina, David, and family, I’m saddened to hear about the passing of Miss Alice. She was such a sweet and kind woman. I have fond memories of the times I got to be a part of many wonderful family gatherings and how hospitable Miss Alice always was and treating me like family. Please know we prayed many prayers for her comfort and peace and will continue to lift you all up in prayer through this difficult time. With love and blessings.

    When Alice came to Lenbrook, I was overjoyed at the prospect of reconnecting with her. During that time we had some precious moments together, reflecting on our childhoods as close cousins in Columbus. I am grateful for that opportunity to share tears and laughter with my loving, special cousin. I send warm, compassionate thoughts to all of you.

  • Jennifer Moore & Laila

    Dina and family, It is my honor to be best friends with Dina since we were 12/13 years old. Alice was like an Aunt to me as she took me in as young friend of Dina’s and then when I had my own child, took my daughter Laila as the same. Alice’s calm demeanor was always a comfort to me and I will always marveled at what style and taste in art she had, as well as as her hosting small and large events, at which I was always invited to, and now will always hold those memories close to me. Her influence now spans new generations, and her love for my child which she sent gifts too showed her love for me and my family. I’m truly saddened by her loss but comforted knowing she will live on through her children and grandchildren and what a mark she left on my life. All of my love and support- Jenn Moore and Laila
