Nona M. Shaw, a long-time resident and native of Oswego passed Friday morning December 31.
Her kindness, grace, humor, gentle hand, and love will be eternally remembered by her two sons Warren (Lisa) Shaw of Oswego and Gary (Nan) Shaw of CA, her five grandchildren Jonathan, Sarah, Justin, Nathan, and Hannah, and her brother Donald (Joanne) Geers of Oswego, and the scores of students she touched in her thirty-five year teaching career.
We will miss her beaming smile and hazel-eyed-looks that reflected a deep sense of adventure and caring. Nona had a strong desire to teach and promote young minds. She started her teaching days in Oswego, then to Sodus, ventured to Kodiak Island, Alaska, then on to southern California, and eventually settled back in Oswego and taught at Minetto for nearly thirty years.
Nona was an accomplished pianist, and she was a member of the daughters of the Eastern Star. Her retirement years were completely devoted to the further life launching of her sons and grandchildren. Her constant gifts will never be forgotten.
Funeral services will be Friday January 7, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at the Sugar & Scanlon Funeral Home. Calling hours will be from Friday 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. prior to the funeral service, at the funeral home 147 West Fourth Street, Oswego. Spring burial will be in Riverside Cemetery.
