Genevieve Shorin passed away unexpectedly on June 5, 2009 after a brief illness. A resident of Port Washington for over 52 years, she was the beloved wife, mother, grandmother and loyal friend to many.
Born in Charleston, WV, on June 9, 1928, she graduated from Linden Hall School in Lititz, PA and Ohio State University. She also attended Teachers College at Columbia University. For the past decade she was a dedicated participant attending Hutton House lectures at the C.W. Post campus of Long Island University and was actively involved in scholarship programs designed to assist undergraduate students. She shared those interests with her husband who continues to serve as a member of the university’s board of trustees.
Mrs. Shorin genuinely enjoyed her many relationships with people from all walks of life. Her sense of humor and warmth were well regarded by all those with whom she had contact, endearing herself to neighbors, friends and colleagues.
After 56 years of marriage, she is survived by her husband Edward; her sons, Richard (Andrea) of Ambler, PA, and James (Michelle) of Palo Alto, CA; and six grandchildren.
A scholarship fund at Long Island University has been established to perpetuate Mrs. Shorin’s dedication to student financial needs. Donations may be sent to Lisa Mulvey, Associate VP Development, Long Island University, C.W. Post Campus, Brookville, NY 11548.
