Elizabeth Mary Shaw

April 5, 2018

Elizabeth M. Shaw, born 18 November 1932 in Greenpoint NY, succumbed to cancer at home surrounded by her loving family. 

She leaves behind her husband of 66 years William P Shaw, and children James Shaw and wife Deborah, Mary Clough with whom she resided, William Shaw and partner Jill, Elizabeth Shaw and husband Robert, Clifford Shaw and wife Catherine, Patricia Shaw and husband Mark, 11 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.   She was preceded in death by her infant son, Joseph.

 She was admired for the way she continued to travel and live her life despite her illness.  It is believed she survived for so long due to the birth of several great grandchildren.   Her amazing sense of humor was maintained until her final hours.

She was a woman incapable of walking by any infant or child without exchanging smiles or giggles and she most loved spending time with her family. 

She was a loyal and loving friend having many friendships lasting over 70 years.

She retired as Administrative Assistant from the town of Antrim NH.

She and her husband had been active for many years in Marriage Encounter and in the Young Adults Program.
