Miriam Solomon, 96


PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Miriam “Mimi” (Shoglow) Solomon was a bright light whose flame flickered out on Oct. 9, 2022. She was the loving wife of the late Leonard “Lenny” Solomon, who dazzled her from an early age. They were instant soul mates and were married for 72 years. 

Born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1925, she was a daughter of the late George and Rebecca (Seigel) Shoglow. She remained in New York with her husband, lived in Hong Kong for eight years, then in Delray Beach, Florida, for 25 years and she enjoyed her last four years of life in Rhode Island. She and Lenny were avid world travelers. 

Mimi is survived by one son, David Solomon, and his wife, Hedy Nuraef, of Margarita Island; one daughter, Judith Monzack, and her husband, Jason, of Warwick; one loving brother, Lawrence Shoglow, and his wife, Carole; cherished grandchildren, Leah Solomon, and her husband, Siggi Bachmann; Joshua Solomon and his wife, Julianna, Liza Solomon, Kayla Monzack and her husband, Joseph Holtschlag, Elyssa Monzack and her husband, Nathan Rentmeester, and Nathaniel Monzack and his wife, Rachael; precious great-grandchildren, Milo, Saevar, Story, Zackary, Arthur, Hannah and Emily; and daughter-in-law, Lissette Erez, and her husband, Miki. Mimi was the mother of the late Robert Solomon and sister of the late Arthur Shoglow. 

The family would like to extend its gratitude to Tamarisk Assisted Living for the care given to Mimi in the last four years. She felt safe, loved and surrounded by dear friends, staff and volunteers there. The family warmly appreciates the kindness from those at HopeHealth Hospice in Mimi’s final days. 

Contributions in her honor may be made to Tamarisk Assisted Living, 3 Shalom Drive, Warwick, RI 02886 or HopeHealth Hospice and Palliative Care, 1085 N. Main St., Providence, RI 02904.
