Shure chairman Rose L Shure passes away
WORLD: Shure has announced that its chairman, Rose L Shure, has passed away peacefully at her home. Mrs Shure has served the company for more than 60 years and was a role model for the core values and basic principles that were introduced by her husband and company founder Sidney N Shure.
‘We have had the privilege of working with a truly extraordinary woman,’ recognised Shure’s chef executive officer, Sandy LaMantia. ‘Our company and many charitable and cultural organisations have benefited from her thoughtfulness and generosity. I am confident that the legacy left to us by Mr and Mrs Shure will continue to endure in our hearts and in our minds. That is exactly the way Mr and Mrs Shure would want it to be.’
The company explains that the welfare of its associates was Mrs Shure’s highest priority, motivated by business integrity, respect and fair treatment. She is also credited with providing a work environment that ‘inspired creativity, fostered pride in making products of the highest quality, and encouraged all Shure associates to reach their personal potential’. In lieu of flowers, the company is asking that donations be instead made to the Sidney N. Shure Kehilla Fund, the Jewish Community Center of Chicago, 30 S. Wells Street, Chicago, Illinois, 60606, or a charity of your personal choice.
