"The Shiva's are our most important funeral account. That big enormous family, they're dropping off like flies!" -Mr. Mushnik
Mrs. Shiva is a woman from a large family. Because of the enormous amount of people in her family, family members die almost every day, which makes her a loyal customer of Mushnik's Florist for funeral arrangements.
Her only physical appearance was in the 1960 film, The Little Shop of Horrors. In the 1986 film, she was mentioned somewhere in the scene entitled "A low-self image". She called the shop to order flowers for a funeral, which Seymour forgot to deliver. Mrs. Shiva is not ever heard of again, and the TV Series doesn't mention her at all.
- "Shiva" is actually a name of a Jewish ceremony of mourning the dead
