Obituary for Ilene M. Shaw

Ilene M. Shaw, 91, of Grand Ledge, MI, passed away surrounded by family on Thursday, February 4, 2021; she was born on February 15, 1929. Ilene is survived by her devoted husband Wm. Robert Shaw of 72 1/2 years, son Gary (Julie) Shaw, and daughters Sue (Dennis) Duffey, Julie (Rodney) VanDeCasteele, and Pam (Jim) Gleich, 10 Grandchildren, and 7 Great Grandchildren, brother Norman Smith and Sister-in-law Eleanor Shaw. She is preceded in death by her parents Charles and Ida Smith, brother Richard Smith, and twin sister Arlene Parker.
She was an active member of the First United Methodist Church of Grand Ledge and United Methodist Women for many years. Together Ilene and Bob ran Shaw’s Sugar Shack where they made homemade real maple syrup, maple cream and maple candies. Many of the neighborhood children enjoyed stopping in for a sweet treat on their way home from school.
Ilene loved to host family and friends in her home and at their cottage on Chippewa Lake. In her spare time she enjoyed painting, camping, baking her famous sugar cookies, bird watching and touring the many lighthouses around Michigan with her husband Bob. The family wishes to thank all of the wonderful hospice staff for their compassionate care allowing us to keep her comfortable in her own home. With a special thanks to her nurse Lisa who has become part of our family. Ilene will be greatly missed by many.
