Patricia Shaw

“Patricia Jameson Shaw”, Mom, Granny, GG, friend, mentor and prayer warrior, moved to the room Christ prepared for her on February 24 at 4:19 PM. Pat persevered to the end, unwavering in her faith and has undoubtedly heard by now, “Well done good and faithful servant”.Born on January 29, 1927 to Robert and Anna B. Jameson, she lived in Missouri and Louisville in her young years. Pat graduated from Louisville Girls High School and the University of Louisville. She attended Oakdale Methodist Church and accepted Christ as her Savior at a young age. It was there that she met the love of her life, Milton, with whom she would live a “storybook marriage” for 59 years until he died on July 21, 2010, on the day and time of their wedding. Pat was the first in her family to graduate from college. She taught first grade for 7 years before becoming a full time, stay at home Mom to Annette Shaw Darnell and David Shaw.

She served the Louisville Emmaus and REC Communities and met faithfully with her Sisters Reunion group weekly.
