Mrs. Pernelle T. Shaw celebrates 100 years

Mrs. Pernelle Elizabeth Taggart Shaw is celebrating her 100th birthday, today, August 11, 2019.

Mrs. Shaw was born August 11, 1919, in Abbeville, South Carolina to Professor Reece C. Taggart & Mrs. Tiney Taggart. Ms. Shaw moved to Salsibury in 1935. She was married to her late husband, Mr. Harold T. Shaw for 48 years.

 

The couple resided in Chicago, Ill. from 1950 to 2008 where she worked outside of the home as the Assistant Director of Surgical Nursing for Cook County Hospital. Following the passing of her spouse, Mrs. Shaw returned to Salisbury and has resided at Trinity Oaks since 2008. Mrs. Shaw is a member of First Calvary Baptist Church, where she attends regularly.

 

Mrs. Shaw marked her milestone birthday with a weekend long celebration that included a host of family and friends from all over the United States traveling to mark the occasion with her. The weekend included an informal family gathering Friday evening, a semi-formal dinner held at the Albert Aymer Center Saturday evening, and ended with her family worshiping together at First Calvary Baptist Church, this morning in Salisbury.

 

From all of her family, both near and far, we wish you a very happy 100th birthday and we are grateful to witness the blessing of longevity and wisdom God has placed on your life.
