Long time civic leader Shirley Weinstein passed away this past Saturday at the age of 90. For 28 years, Weinstein was the secretary of Queens Community Board #8. In the mid 1980s, she established the Mid Queens Community Council and remained active with this civic group until the time of her death. She was also a past officer of the 107th Precinct Community Council and served on many advisory boards of other Queens organizations in her life.
Her advocacy on behalf of all Queens residents will be missed by all, especially the FMTA volunteers who had the pleasure of working with and knowing Shirley personally through the years.
