Jennifer Marie Shaw
March 29, 1974 ‒ July 09, 2014
Jennifer Marie Shaw, age 40, of Cardington, ended her battle with cancer on Wednesday evening, July 9, 2014, at her home. She has now joined her grandparents, Ray and Dorcas Fischer, and her niece, Savannah, in Heaven.
On March 29, 1974, Jennifer was born in Upper Sandusky, the daughter of Theresa Jean (Fischer) Newman. She graduated from Marion Harding High School in the Class of 1992. She furthered her education by obtaining her Bachelor’s in Elementary Education from The University of Findlay in 2007.
Jennifer spent the last seven years teaching in the Marion City Schools system as an elementary reading recovery teacher. She adored children and loved teaching them. She was an old fashioned teacher, spending her paycheck on items needed for the classroom to help her students.
A woman of faith, Jennifer was a member of the Vineyard Church of Morrow County. She assisted with the children’s ministries until her health failed to the point she couldn’t help any longer.
Jennifer cherished spending time with her family and traveling with them. They went on many cruises to Europe and the Caribbean, and also enjoyed many hiking adventures together. She always wanted a big family, but never had any of her own children. She loved her nieces and nephews more than anything and treated them like her own kids.
Jennifer will be dearly missed by her mom and dad, Theresa (Fischer) Newman and Earl Newman of Cardington, two sisters: Tamara (Shaw) Potter and her husband Dean of Marengo, Candice (Mathys) Keirns and her husband Shane of Marion; and five nieces and nephews: Cataryna, Issabella, Logan, Abbrieanna, and Ellieanna.
A memorial service honoring Jennifer’s life will be held at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 15, 2014, at the Vineyard Church of Morrow County, 104 W. Main St., Fulton, OH 43321, with Pastor Jerry Stephens officiating.
Contributions in Jennifer’s memory may be made to the Vineyard Church of Morrow County.
