Christine Ann Shaw
Christine (Grammy Shaw) was a woman full of determination. She could outwork just about anyone. She was always one step behind Jack doing carpentry work or taking drives through MacDougall with a thermos and packed lunch. In later years she enjoyed Friday night music with her friend Robbie (Neil) MacCallum.
Her children and grandchildren were her pride and joy. She showed love by preparing meals and baking while caring for her family and anyone who visited. Over the years she loved to dance in the kitchen with her children, then grandchildren, playing Conway Twitty, George Strait, and Johnny Reid to name a few of her favorites.
She took pride in a well-kept home with many hand-created items that made the house a home. Making preserves, sewing, and quilting, her determination made the serious illness of COPD look small.
She was often known for her love for high heels, lipstick, and being dressed in style. Her happiest moments were spent with Jack Shaw and having great conversations over a cup of tea.
Christine was predeceased by her husband Jack Renfrew Shaw, parents Wilma Irene and Hugh Bruce Parks, son David Allen Savoie, sister-in-law Wanda Parks, and brother Ronald Parks.
She is survived by her Siblings, Hugh Parks (wife Karen), Linda Crosby (husband Chuck), Joanne Blair (husband Dave), Dorothy Parks-Santerfeit (husband Billy), Charles Parks (Lynne), Juliet Kinghorne (husband Eugene), John Parks (wife Kathy) and sister-in-law Kaye Parks. Her children, Andrew Savoie (wife Johanne), Michael Savoie, Wilma Boyd (husband Kelly), Richard Savoie (wife Donna), Hugh Savoie, Roni-Sue Moran (husband Andy), Kathy Shaw (Russel), Kenneth Shaw (Sherri) and Erica Keenan.
