Lenora Gretzinger Shaw
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 24, 1904
Peru
Miami County
Indiana, USA
Death: Jun. 3, 1986
California, USA

Lenora was the daughter of Bailey Beedle and Mary (Smith). Her father was killed in a train crash when she was only a year old. Her mother remarried and she was adopted by Mary's second husband, Jacob Gretzinger. Lenora had several more siblings, Alice, John, and Kirk (my dad) and two step brothers, Norman and Norvil. She married William Shaw and they had 4 children: Mary Alice, Billy Lee, Dale and Donnie.

Aunt Lenora was full of love and laughs. She was always telling jokes and had everyone in stitches. Her last day, she had dinner with her daughter and got in the car to leave and had a major heart attack. The end came swift and she went to heaven leaving all of us to mourn her passing. She is deeply missed.
