Nathalie Shapiro, 99, died of complications of C0VID-19 on July 5 2020 at the Gilchrist Hospice in Towson, Maryland. Born in New York to Johnanne McPherson Schulze and Louis Ernst Carl Schulze, Nathalie Binny helped to support her family during the Great Depression. She later attended Cornell University, but interrupted her studies after the U.S. entered the Second World War to marry William J. Winchester. The couple settled in his hometown of Baltimore, Maryland. While raising five daughters Nathalie often volunteered through her church, Roland Park Presbyterian, at The Bryn Mawr School for Girls, and for the local Cornell Alumni group. As her children began to leave for college she decided to take a job in retail, at Hutzler’s Department Store. Later she became the Bridal Buyer at Hochschild Kohn’s. After the death of Mr. Winchester she married Bernard L. Shapiro and moved back to New York, where she again worked as a volunteer, notably at the International Center, later accepting positions with bridal dress manufacturers, Sirst Joy Time, then Priscilla of Boston. After over 30 years in the bridal industry the Shapiros retired to Anderson, South Carolina, where they lived for over 12 years before relocating to Heartlands, in Ellicott City, Maryland. Once established Nathalie soon began to serve as a volunteer in that community, especially on the chapel and welcome committees.

Nathalie is preceded in death by her parents, her husbands, and her brothers, Louis M. Schulze and his wife, Mary Anne, of Anderson, South Carolina, and Donald K. Schulze of Ames, Iowa.

Nathalie is survived by her daughters, Johnanne Winchester, of Portland, Oregon, Nathalie Winchester, Valerie Kitch (Harry) of Ellicott City, Maryland, Laurie Winchester-White of Norfolk, Virginia, and Kathie Winchester (Tom Wakeley) of Albany, New York; by her stepson Charles Shapiro (Joan), of Omaha, Nebraska, her stepdaughter, Cindy Shapiro (Doug Gibson) of Thompsonville, Michigan; by her grandsons, Sierra Winchester (Laura Mazy) of Portland, Oregon, Dr. Bryan Kitch (Tiffany) of Winterville, North Carolina, Adam White of Charleston, South Carolina, Andrew White (Charlotte) of Norfolk, Virginia, David White of Seattle, Washington, Nathan Shapiro (Carly) of Omaha, Nebraska, and Eric Shapiro (Hillary) also of Omaha; by her great grandsons, Charles White and Ben White of Norfolk, Virginia, and Aden Winchester of Portland, Oregon; and by her sister in law, Carol Schulze, of Ames Iowa.

A memorial service will be scheduled at a future date, and interment will take place at Druid Ridge Cemetery in Pikesville, Maryland. The family thanks the devoted caregivers at Heartlands and Gilchrist. In lieu of flowers, consider a donation to the Gilchrist Hospice, at
