Sherley R Dobkin

Sherley was born on March 16, 1921 in the Bronx, New York to the late Julius and Bertha Richman Berg. Though an Honor student, the Depression forced her to put off further educational pursuits until later in life. She received her Associates Degree with honors from the University of North Florida in 1980. On November 3, 1940, she married Mully, the love of her life. Their life together was a great adventure for the next 45 years until his passing in 1985. Following the path of Mully's career, they made their home in Middletown and Wethersfield, Connecticut, Acton, Massachusetts, Bath, Ohio, Saginaw, Michigan, and Jacksonville, Florida. In 2012 she made her final move to Sarasota. Despite all of the stops on their journey, she always considered her beloved Wethersfield to be home. In Wethersfield, she participated in many community activities such as the Little League and the Cub Scouts. She was a Founding and Lifetime member of Temple Beth Torah. She dedicated most of her non-working hours to the Temple. She taught Religious school, chaired committees, and was a member of the Board of Trustees for many years.
