Rosemary Lee Shaw


Rosemary Lee Shaw, 95, of Rosedale, passed away May 15, 2019. Rosemary was born at home in Rosedale, Indiana, February 21, 1924, to H.V. and Ruth Adams Lee.
She graduated from Rosedale High School in 1942. She attended Indiana State University and then worked at the Newport Army Ammunition Plant during World War II. After the war ended, Rosemary married Lewis Shaw and had two children, Danny and Janie. She helped her husband on the farm, as well as working several years as the assistant branch manager at the Parke State Bank in Rosedale. Rosemary enjoyed gardening, shopping, and making delicious soups and pies for her family. Having her family for lunch or supper was one of her greatest pleasures. She was a member of the Rosedale Baptist Church and the Rosedale Bunco Club.
She was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers; her son, Dan Shaw; and her husband, Lewis Shaw. Rosemary is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Jane and John Russell; and daughter-in-law, Patt Shaw; grandchildren, Emily and Scott Luc, and Aimee Shaw; great-grandchildren, Caroline and Connor Luc; her sister-in-law, Mary Shaw; and several nieces and nephews.
Rosemary was born, raised, and passed away in the country. Sitting on her front porch with her husband, drinking sun tea, and looking out at the fields of corn and beans gave her much happiness. She loved nothing more than living her peaceful, simple life on the farm surrounded by the beauty of nature.
Graveside service will be at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, May 21, 2019, at Rosedale Cemetery. Care and arrangements entrusted to Cottrell-Gooch Funeral Home, Rosedale. Online condolences may be shared at:
