Lasky, Shirley

May 20, 1930 – Oct. 23, 1912

Born on May 20, 1930 in Oxnard, Shirley Ann Lasky passed away in Woodland on Oct. 23, 2012.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband George; her twin brother, James, who died in the Korean War; and her parents, Gertrude Henrietta (Clark) and Lloyd James McGraw. She is survived by her daughters, Janis Lasky Couvreux (Michel) and Marta Bradley, and her son, James (Roberta) Lasky. Also surviving are her grandchildren Sean (Christin) Couvreux, Brendan (Chloe) Couvreux, Robert Bradley and Paige Bradley, and great-grandchildren Claire, Matthew, Sky and Tao Couvreux.

Her ancestors have been traced back to the 1700s in Danby, N.Y., and Fairfield, Conn. Shirley graduated from St. Mary’s Academy in Los Angeles in 1948, and was married to her husband George on April 17, 1953, at the Santa Barbara Mission. They were very happily married for 52 years. She was employed by the Newport-Mesa Unified School District in Newport Beach for a number of years.

Shirley lived with her family in California most of her life — ranging from Northridge to Orange County and Saratoga near San Jose — except for a short period in Alaska during the 1970s. She enjoyed retirement in Bodega Bay, then later in Petaluma and Davis.

Shirley loved to travel, entertain, play bridge, knit and read, and will be remembered for her keen sense of humor and her loving disposition. She will be greatly missed by her friends and family.

No formal services will be held. In lieu of flowers, please make donations in her memory to Hospice of Petaluma or Yolo Hospice. Arrangements are in the care of the Woodland Funeral Chapel.
