Shulamit Shamir
Wife of former Israeli Prime Minister dies at 88
The Associated Press

JERUSALEM (AP) Shulamit Shamir, the wife of former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, has died in Tel Aviv. She was 88.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement of condolence to her family on Friday.

Shulamit was born in Bulgaria in 1923. She was arrested upon arrival in what was then British-ruled Palestine due to a limitation on Jewish immigration, and was sent to a detention camp. There she met Yitzhak, held for his activities in a Jewish underground group. They married in 1944.

Yitzhak served as prime minister from 1983-84 and again between 1986-1992.

Shulamit is survived by her 95-year-old husband, two children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her funeral is set for Sunday in Jerusalem.
