Oct. 19, 1944-March 22, 2014

RICHWOOD — Kathleen “Kathy” (Myers) Shaw, 69 of Richwood, formerly of Chicago, Clyde, Delphos and Laurinburg, N.C., passed away unexpectedly the evening of Saturday of a brain aneurysm. Heroic efforts by her husband, Ray, the North Union Rescue Squad and the emergency room staff at Marion General Hospital were unable to save her.

Born Oct. 19, 1944, in Tiffin, she was the daughter of John and Millie (Loverich) Myers of Marion.

On Sept. 18, 1965, she married Raymond L. Shaw in St. Mary Church in Marion. He survives in Richwood.

Kathy is also survived by seven children, Karen (Ed) Waldo of LaRue, Tim (Sharon) Shaw of Sugar Grove, Angie (Mark) Allen of Wapakoneta, Laura (Jon) Conrad of Columbus Grove, Marianne (Brian) Van Voorhis of Reynoldsburg, John (Andrew Ross) Shaw of Columbus and Jason (Hilary Carpenter) Shaw of Raleigh, N.C.; 12 grandchildren, Brett Wiechart, Josh Reel, Joe Schmitz, Jenna Reel, Miranda Allen, David Shaw, Gabriella Larschied, Ben Waldo, Luke Waldo, Avery Van Voorhis, Grace Waldo and Harper Shaw; two great-grandchildren, Mackena Germann and Jaxon Germann; and nine siblings, Richard (Susan) of Cleveland, Gina Blackman of Lewis Center, Pat (Tom) Smith of Haines City, Fla., Mark (Mary) of Charlotte, N.C., Greg (Myrtle) of Columbus, Tom (Diana) of LaRue, Julie (Mike) Toombs of Marion, Dan (Dorothy) of Richwood and Chris (Linda) of Franklin, N.C.

Kathy was a loving caring wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great-grandmother, nurse and friend. A graduate of Marion Catholic High School and Mount Carmel School of Nursing, she was a nurse for several nursing homes in the cities in which she lived, finally retiring from Fairhaven Community in Upper Sandusky. Baking, cooking, canning and taking care of others were her life’s works and treasures. An active and devout member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Kenton, Kathy laid down her life for her family, her friends, her patients, her church and her Saviour every minute of every day. Those who are left to miss her can only hope to live their lives half as well and as faithfully, eventually to join her in our eternal and perfect home.

A Mass of Christian Burial will take place at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Kenton, the Rev. Jeffrey Tigyer officiating. Private burial in Price Cemetery will take place later that day.

Friends may call from 3-7 p.m. Tuesday at the Stofcheck-Ballinger Funeral Home, Richwood, where a Rosary Service will be held at 7 p.m.

Memorial gifts may be made to St. Vincent dePaul, c/o Immaculate Conception Church, 215 East North Street, Kenton OH 43326
