Betty Shaw (Houghton)

February 16, 1935 — August 16, 2021

Betty J. Shaw, age 86, of Fenwick, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Monday, August 16, 2021.

Next to her love of Jesus, Betty’s most important thing in her life was her family. She loved them dearly and treasured doing things with them, for them, and being around them. Every kid, grandkid, great grandkid, and many other family members all have mittens Betty knitted for them. Betty was also very active in the church and was a member of the Kingsley Baptist Church for 26 years, where she sang in the choir, taught Sunday School, was a Joy Club leader and Counselor at Lake Ann Camp. For 42 years, Betty was a member of Shiloh Community Church, where she also sang in the choir, helped with vacation Bible School, and taught Sunday School. Betty also enjoyed bowling in her woman’s league, deer hunting, and fishing.
