Cherished wife of James, beloved mother of Matthew and Lukas, daughter of Gilda Rudner and sister of Lori Rubin, and adored friend of many.

Shellee's passing leaves a void in the hearts of her family and friends who are yet comforted by the knowledge that her spirit will continue to live with us. She left us much too soon, and we grieve her passing. Services Wednesday, December 5, 11:15am at "The Riveside," 76th Street and Amsterdam Avenue.
