Shelley Ann LaRose, 64, of the Town of LaGrange, passed away on January 11, 2018 at home surrounded by her loving family, after a four-year battle with cancer. She was born in New York City on May 30, 1953, the only child of Simon & Ida Garbut. She grew up in Yonkers, met her husband during college and they attended law school together. A loving wife and mother, Shelley married Keith LaRose in 1978 and had two children, Stephanie Lewison and Michael LaRose.
Shelley was a partner with her husband in the law firm of LaRose & LaRose in Poughkeepsie, but her children always came first. She will be sorely missed by both family and friends.
Graveside services will be Sunday, January 14, 2018 at 1pm in Sharon Gardens Cemetery, part of the Kensico Cemetery in Valhalla, NY. Rabbi Leah Berkowitz will officiate.
Arrangements are under the direction of the Wm. G. Miller & Son F.H., Inc., 371 Hooker Ave., Poughkeepsie, NY 12603.
