Charlotte Shapiro Saks

Charlotte Ann Shapiro Saks, 99, passed peacefully October 10, 2021 at her apartment in Weinberg Village in Tampa.  She was born to Isadore and Sarah Shapiro on June 27, 1922 in Chicago, Illinois. She was the oldest of two. Charlotte Saks was proud to be a 13-year veteran of the U.S. Postal Service. In retirement, she loved her many years as an usher at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center. Charlotte cherished her roles as dear friend, wife, sister, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was a native Chicagoan, but moved to Tampa in 1984 to become a source of unconditional support to her two grandsons, Eric and Josh. Charlotte was preceded in death by her sister Mona Schwab, who passed from COVID-19 at age 94, and her husband of 73 years, Seymour Saks, whom she met on the beach near Union Pier when she was 17. She said the secret to staying married was holding hands and forgiveness. The funeral will be held at Shalom Memorial in Arlington Heights, Illinois this Thursday, October 13th, at 11:00 AM (See Live Stream Info Below)  In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be sent to the Weinberg Village so that the employees of that community can experience a little more joy from the woman who, while she was with us, was an inexhaustible source of positivity and kindness.
