Jerry G. Shaw died Wednesday, May 25, 2022, at Shelby Pointe, surrounded by her loving family.

Jerry was born on July 6, 1940, to the late James and Cora (Carpenter) Furr Sr. in Shelby, she was a graduate of Shelby High School.  She worked as an underwriter and manager for Shelby Mutual Insurance for many years.  She was a member of the Shelby YMCA and the Calvary Baptist Church where she was beloved by the congregation and ran the nursery for over 30 years. Jerry adored children and, although she only had one daughter of her own, she doted on her nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews, and even the nursery children at church. All these special children lovingly called her Nana.  Jerry loved life and was a joyful spirit that brightened everybody's day. She had a soft spot for animals and enjoyed camping and fishing.  She especially looked forward to going on an annual fishing trip to Sault Ste. Marie, MI, with her husband, Floyd, which they have taken for the last 40 years.  Jerry touched so many lives and she will be dearly missed by all.

She is survived by her husband, Floyd Shaw, whom she married on July 2, 1960; daughter, Woodlin (Jay) Mosley of Shelby, Siblings, Fred (Jennifer) Furr of Greenwich, Richard "Dick" (Barb) Furr of Shelby, Herb (Kate) Furr of Galion, Edna Mae Zigler of Lexington, and James Furr Jr. of Georgia; brother-in-law, Melvin Shaw; and many nieces, nephews, and other close relatives.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her siblings, Lloyd Furr and Wilbert Furr.
