Sue Ellen McIllwain Shapiro, a lifelong resident of Nashville, passed away February 18th, 2018. Sue was born on September 10th, 1954, the daughter of the late Kermit and Charlotte McIllwain. A graduate of Hillsboro High School, Sue worked in the travel industry for her entire career and served for many years as the General Manager of Caldwell Travel. Sports, travel, as well as family and friends - both two-legged and four legged- she loved them all, especially her husband of 27 years, Charles J. Shapiro, who predeceased her. Sue is survived by her sister Connie Brown, her niece Suzanne Brown Miller and great niece, Ella Miller, sisters-in-law Ann Shapiro, Susan Shapiro, Elizabeth Silverman and Barbara Sutherland; her brothers-in-law Stephen Silverman and Steven Shapiro; and her nieces and nephew Susannah, Polly and Elinor Silverman and Sara and Ethan Shapiro. Given Sue's devotion to animals in need, the family asks that donations in her memory be made to either Nashville Cat Rescue (P.O. Box 140898, Nashville, TN 37214), Agape Animal Rescue (P.O. Box 292766, Nashville, 37229) or New Leash on Life (507 W. Baddour Pkwy, Lebanon 37087) . A celebration of life will be held at the Historic Mount Olivet Funeral Home & Cemetery Ryman Chapel on March 17th, 2018 at 2 PM.

Many fond memories of Sue. Mostly that giggle. OMG, that infectious laugh. I can hear it right now. I haven't kept up with Sue really, since high school, but we ran into each other a few times over the years and it was always as if time had not passed. She was a good friend from those school days and the news of her passing was sad for all of her classmates. I know she will be missed by her close friends and family. She was a good one.

Sue was always so nice to me whenever we talked.
She and Charlie came by Nashville Flowers quite often. (Mostly Charlie running errands for Sue)
Each time we talked it was like we had a recent conversation and picked up where we left off. I will always have fond memories of her.
