Obituary - SHARON EISEN WRIGHT

 


Written by the family

Sharon “Sherry” Eisen Wright, 80, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 22, 2018, at her residence.

Born in Chicago, on May 15, 1937, she was the daughter to proud parents Samuel Eisen and Gertrude (Scher) Eisen. She graduated as an honor student from Nicholas Senn High School (Class of 1954), went to Indiana University, left to start a family in Chicago, and then moved to Ft. Lauderdale in 1972.

She was predeceased by her late husband, Sheldon; brother Corky, and sister-in-law Joyce. Survived by three daughters—Shelly, Jodi and Rachel; one son, Michael; daughter-in-law Zanda; brother Jim; sister-in-law Madeleine; and grandchildren—Jessica, Zachary, and Alise. She is also survived by many beloved nieces, nephews, cousins and countless friends.

She never met a stranger, always gave a smile, spoke kind words, laughed, lit up any room, was genuine, carried herself with grace and dignity, was selfless, unassuming beautiful, quick witted, joyful, loving, intelligent, and determined to make others happy. Her joys in life included being a devoted mother, grandmother, wife, sister, aunt friend, sorority sister, singing in the choir, dancing, attending theater, Friday night services, holidays, knitting, baking, traveling, dining, antiquing, playing mahjong, driving fast, laughing, and surrounding herself with the company of friends and family. She was an avid community volunteer who also belonged, and gave freely of her time and money, to countless charities, religious organizations, and international causes.

She touched so many lives with her conscious decision to be happy, and spread joy to all those she encountered, as that was her sole purpose. Please honor her memory with a smile, laughter, or a kind deed.

A memorial tribute took place on June 8th at 11 a.m. at Beth Shalom Memorial Chapel, 640 Lee Road, Orlando 32810, to be followed immediately by a celebratory party to her legacy of joy at Café Murano, 309 Cranes Roost Blvd, Altamonte Springs FL 32701.

In lieu of flowers, please send contributions in her memory to the Orlando Chapter of Hadassah, 645 Stafford Terrace #153, Altamonte Springs FL 32701.

Arrangements entrusted to Beth Shalom Memorial Chapel, 640 Lee Road, Orlando 32810. 407-599-1180.
