Shirley G. Cohen, age 88, of New Port Richey, Florida, passed away on

Wednesday, June 26th peacefully at home


She was born March 25, 1936 in Uniontown, PA to the late Harry Greenwald and Fannie Shure.  She was a 1954 graduate of Uniontown High School and a 1958 graduate of the University of Pittsburgh. She worked as a teacher in the Pittsburgh School system but the true focus of her life was caring for her family.

Shirley was a beloved Bubbe (grandmother) to Courtney Cohen, Hannah Cohen, Abigail (Cohen) Gustafson and Samuel Cohen and a beloved Great Grandmother to Chaya Cohen-Katz, Zoey Cohen-Katz, Benjamin Corrar and Matilda Corrar.  Shirley is also survived by many nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly


May her memory be for a blessing.


A memorial service will be held at the Andrew D. Ferguson Funeral Home, 80 Morgantown St., Uniontown, PA at 11:00 A.M. on June 30, 2024


The family suggests contributions in Shirley’s memory be made to the Alzheimers Society or Gulfside Hospice of New Port Richey.


Memories and condolences can be shared with the family at or on the funeral home Face Book page.
