- Family Members:
- Ed, who was born in Pittsburgh, PA, lived most of his life in Flint, MI, working in the family business, Shapiro's Fine Foods. He married the love of his life, Golda, in 1966 and together, they raised three children. During their time in Flint, they were active members at Temple Beth El, where Ed served on the Board of Trustees and numerous committees. Along with working at the family grocery store, Ed also enjoyed working at Flint's Bower Theater, where he was able to utilize his love of building sets. After Shapiro's closed in 1985, Ed began a successful career at Belmont Paper and Bag Co. where he was able to build relationships with many different people. Ed had a wonderful sense of humor and loved to share jokes with his customers and tell stories about his family and life experiences. Ed had a true gift of connecting with others often striking up conversations with people while standing in check-out lines. Whomever he met never left a stranger. In 1994, Ed and Golda moved to West Bloomfield to be closer to their grandchildren. After Golda's death in 2010, Ed became involved with a Cancer Survivor's Support Group at Karmanos Cancer Institute and enjoyed volunteering at Jewish Family Services.
He is survived by his loving children, Amy Shapiro, Ronald Shapiro, and Beth & Andy Isola; grandchildren Jennifer, Benn, Rebecca, Jaclyn, Adam, and Max; one great-grandchild, Zara; along with many nieces, nephews and friends. Mr. Shapiro was preceded in death by his wife, Golda, parents Harry & Sophie Shapiro, brother Irwin Shapiro, and sisters Rita Feinstein and Barbara (Bobbi) Weisberg.
