Elizabeth Ann "Beth" Shapiro, 49, beloved mother of Kyler and Seth Shapiro of Unity, cherished granddaughter of Franklin Lloyd (Conn.), and sister of Susan Shapiro, Roberta Armstead (Conn.), Jason (Nicole) Shapiro (N.C.) and Steven Mann (Md.), passed away of an unexpected illness Tuesday, Feb. 23, 2021.

Born Sept. 28, 1971, in Milford, Conn., 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 get an accounting degree, her love of her children, family, friends and support from Faith Community Church were the highlights of her life.

Beth was predeceased by her loving mother, Lorraine Spring, devoted grandmother Elizabeth Lloyd, brother Franklin Harriman, and daughter Chelsea Klein.

Beth will be laid to rest next to her mother in a graveside burial service in Monroe in May. Contributions in her memory may be made to Kyler and Seth's Education Fund in care of Franklin Lloyd, 65 Robert Treat Drive, Milford, CT 06460.
