Sheila Harriet Meyerson (nee Mintzer) was born in Brooklyn in 1935 and passed away on May 21 after a long battle with cancer. She was the only child of her parents, Rachel (Lieder) and Marcus.

Sheila moved to Florida in 1954 after marrying Larry Mizrach. Their three children survive her, Glenn of Richmond, VA, Bruce (and wife Karen Rose), of Westfield, NJ and Steven, of Miami, FL. She will also be sadly missed by her "daughter" Beth Weinstein (Efronson).

Sheila's nieces, Rhonda and Marian Parker, of Sharon, MA and Hadley, MA also survive her.

Meyerson was a home maker and active in charity work, especially with the Suburban League and Variety Children's Hospital.

In 1979, she married Sidney Meyerson. They ran a medical clinic, the South Beach Diagnostic Center, for more than ten years until Sid's death in 1993.

Sheila relocated, first to Aventura and then to Hallandale Beach. She had a wonderful group of friends who played cards, read books, and went to the casino. She cheered for the Dolphins, the Heat and the University of Miami, often in salty language.

Sheila fought her illness for more than four years, and she brought that same spirit to all the aspects of her life. Her four grandchildren, Daniel, Jonathan, Helen and Benjamin join a long list of family and friends in mourning our special Sheila.

Sheila was one of the sweetest people on earth. It was an absolute joy to have her as a friend. For many years, Sheila, Linda Scharf and I would share our birthdays and its beyond sad to think this delightful event for Sheilas birthday wont be happening in just a few weeks in June. My heart and prayers go out to the family and all who had the pleasure of knowing Sheila.

My deepest condolences to you, for the loss of your exceptionally-wonderful mother. I'll never forget when you joined me and my sister Jill, in riding our bicycles together to Pinecrest Elementary School... And your mother drove alongside us in her car to make sure you were okay! She was lovingly-protective of you, and tremendously proud of you. The unique mirror perimeter / border on the floor of your home's foyer, was always dust-free and glistening... Your mother managed and maintained that house so beautifully. Her personality was spirited and entertaining, always. She was in awe of you (as all of us were, of you), and she cherished the extraordinary blessing of you being her son. To be Steven Mizrach's mother was righteously wondrous and thrilling for her! The mutual admiration and love you and she had for one another was always apparent, and enriching.

The last thing that Sheila said to me was "You are a good friend". Sheila and I have been friends for many years and I will miss her very much. My thoughts and prayers are with the family!
