Edward Gerald Shineberg
December 28, 1925 – January 7, 2014
Edward G. Shineberg passed away on Tuesday, January 7, 2014 at his home with his family by his side. He was born on December 28, 1925 to George G. and Rose H. Shineberg in Los Angeles, California. He was a proud member of the US Marines having enlisted at the age of 17. He attended officer’s training school at Southwestern University in Texas for 2 years before returning to Los Angeles to attend UCLA as a history major.
His parents left LA for Rock Springs, Wyoming and started the Rock Springs Laundry and Dry Cleaners. Edward left school to help run the business when his father grew ill and never returned to UCLA, but he maintained a keen interest in history and world affairs for his entire life. He remained a business man in Rock Springs until he retired in 1970.
In 1951, Edward returned to LA for a brief time and met and married Elisabeth J. Stern, “Liesel”, whom he married after a 6 week whirlwind courtship. They lived together in Rock Springs for 60 years and loved Wyoming and all their friends reluctantly moving to Ogden for health reasons so they could be closer to their daughter. They would have celebrated their 63rd anniversary this May. Ed and Liesel had 4 children, Adrienne, Jonathan, Janice and David.
Edward was proud of his Jewish heritage and was a member of Congregation Brith Sholem.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his sons Jonathan and David. He is survived by his wife, daughters Adrienne Krause of San Diego, CA. and Janice (Sheldon) Ward of Ogden, daughter-in-law Dana Shineberg of Rock Springs, Wyoming, grandsons Clay Shineberg of Laramie, Wyoming and Daniel Shineberg of Kansas City, MS, granddaughters Sarah Ward and Elizabeth Ward of Salt Lake City. Also survived by his sister-in-law Charlotte Friedman, numerous cousins, the entire Ward family and special friend Nate Squiers. The family sends many thanks to his Wyoming and Green River friends for being in his life.
Friends and family are invited to a short service and celebration of his life at the Ward residence, 1811 Wasatch Dr., Ogden on Sunday, January 12, 2014 at noon. A celebration of his life will also be held in Rock Springs, Wyoming in the spring.
