Obituary for V. Flora (Flo) Shifrin
V. Flora (Flo) Shifrin passed peacefully on to God early this morning. Flo was a resident of Willimantic for nearly her entire life, and is perhaps best remembered for having run the Italian Garden Restaurant.  She is survived by her children, their spouses and grandchildren, Chick and Cheryl Shifrin and their son Sean of Columbia, CT, Sam and Michelle Shifrin and their sons Nick and Joe of Windham, CT, Rick and Mary (Shifrin) Howe and their children Samantha and Tyler of Agawam, Mass. and Jim and Mary-Grace Shifrin and their children Cooper and Nevaeh of Lebanon, CT. Flo also leaves behind her loving sisters, Stella (Sandy) Rijs of Windham, CT and Giovanna (Jenny) Abare of Ledyard, CT. as well as numerous nieces and nephews.  Flo was a devoted mother who taught her children how to love and take care of their families and others. Her concern and generosity was evident through her willingness to always feed and nurture those in need of food or a home.  As a wife, Flo demonstrated her devotion through her love and consistent care for her husband, Al. She was also a wonderful Nonni to her eight grandchildren, and enjoyed watching them each grow into beautiful, happy individuals.  She was a devout Catholic and a communicant of St. Joseph’s Church in Willimantic, and instilled the importance of keeping God in your life in each of her children. Flo leaves us to again join her parents, Salvatore and Angelina Todaro, her husband, Al Shifrin, her granddaughter, Bailey, and numerous other friends and family members to be in final, peaceful communion with God.  Calling hours will be Thursday, August 16 from 6-8 pm at Bacon Funeral Home in Willimantic, CT. A funeral mass will be held on Friday, August 17 at 10:00 am at St. Joseph’s Church, with her burial to follow at St. Joseph’s Cemetery. Donations may be made in memory of Flo to Bailey’s Garden/LESPTA, PO Box 50, Lebanon, CT 06249.
