Elizabeth “Beth” Ann Shapiro, 49, beloved mother of Kyler and Seth Shapiro of Unity, Maine, cherished granddaughter of Franklin Lloyd (Connecticut) and sister of Susan Shapiro, Roberta Armstead (Connecticut), Jason (Nicole) Shapiro (NC) and Steven Mann (MD), passed away of an unexpected illness on Tuesday, February 23, 2021.
Born September 28, 1971 in Milford, Connecticut, she was placed into her grandfather Frank’s arms. Love at first sight, he was to be her champion over 49 years of her life’s journey. Beth will be remembered for her boundless energy, wit and tenacity in the face of adversity. Even when she had nothing, she found something to give. A gymnast in her young years and aspiring to an accounting degree, her love of her children, family, friends and support from Faith Community Church were the highlight of her life.
Beth was predeceased recently by her loving mother, Lorraine Spring; devoted grandmother, Elizabeth Lloyd; brother, Franklin Harriman; daughter, Chelsea Klein and her Aunt Emma Gilbert.
In addition to her brothers and sisters, Beth is survived by aunts and uncles Kathy Lloyd, Virgil (Jeanne) Lloyd and Earl (Bonnie) Lloyd, and numerous cousins: Meredith Hass, Brian Lloyd, Jessica Desjardins, John Stevenson, Amy Lloyd, Daniel Lloyd, David Lloyd; and nieces, nephews Diamond Estes, Camden West, Kelsey and Ava Shapiro, and Alex and Paige Harriman.
Beth will be laid to rest next to her mother in a graveside burial service in Maine, May 2021.
