Saralee Shaffer Kolitz
July 9, 1944- January 27, 2021
Saralee Kolitz, 76, passed away Wednesday, January 27, 2021. She was a devoted and loving wife, mother and grandmother. She sadly passed away three days before her adoring husband of 58 years, Jim. Saralee is survived by her daughters, Laurie Kolitz DaRe and Amy Kolitz Russo, sons-in-law, Jay DaRe and Brian Russo, grandchildren Andrew DaRe, Alex DaRe, Zoe Russo and Cole Russo, and a multitude of wonderful family and friends.
Saralee was an artist and an avid reader. She was gifted with a green thumb and derived great pleasure from tending her garden, both inside and outside. She and Jim had an active social life and so many beautiful friends.
A service will be held at Mount Sinai Hollywood Hills. In light of health and safety concerns, the service is limited to immediate family.
The family suggests that any donations in Saralee’s memory be made to The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank or The American Cancer Society.
