Edith Shanker Death | Obituary – UFT founder Edith “Eadie” Shanker, the wife of former UFT President Albert Shanker and a staunch supporter of the union and its members, has passed away.
Eadie remained involved in the union and its causes for decades. She was a regular presence at the union’s Albert Shanker Scholarship Awards Ceremony (pictured below), where the union gives nearly $1 million annually in college scholarships for high-achieving public school seniors from low-income families.
Retired Teachers Chapter Leader Tom Murphy said he will always remember Eadie as a woman “of involvement and action. She offered intense activism and was always there to help both in-service and retired members and was always committed to progressive unionism.” May she rest in peace.
