Obituary for Jenny Shaw

Genevieve “Jenny” Shaw, age 74, a 41 year resident of Naperville, IL, passed away on October 11, 2018 at her home. She was born on November 26, 1943 in Urbana, IL and grew up in Edwardsville, IL. She attended college at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado where she met her husband to be, Allan Shaw.

She was preceded in death by her parents Edward and Maxine Schrodt. Jenny is survived by Allan, her husband of 54 years; their loving children, Trevor and Ian, their partners Kathryn Hill and Rachel Bridge, and her sister and brother-in law Victoria and Lawrence Leitner.

The great loves of Jenny's life were her family, her home, and her cats. She served Naperville for 24 years through her work at Nichols Library, where, for many years she provided the recorded voice for their answering machine. Besides taking care of her three cats (Spring, Spook, and Max) she enjoyed puttering in her garden, watching Dancing With The Stars, and keeping up with figure skating, dressage, and horse racing. She was an avid reader and patronized Nichols Library long after she stopped working there. We also know she was glad to have seen the Cubs win a world series.

For those who would like to leave a lasting tribute to Jenny's life, memorials to A.D.O.P.T. in Naperville would be greatly appreciated.

A memorial visitation will be held on Friday, October 19, 4:00 until 7:00 PM at the Friedrich-Jones Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 44 S. Mill St., Naperville. A memorial service will follow at 7:00 PM at the funeral home. Interment will be private.
