Sunrise: July 26, 1955 Sunset: October 9, 2019
The Shaw and Cooper families are saddened to announce the homegoing of our sister, aunt, cousin, niece, and friend, Valeria A. Shaw, in her 64th year. This sad event occurred on October 9, 2019, at the St. Joseph’s Catholic Hospital in Sinkor, Monrovia, Liberia, where she finally succumbed to complications arising from long-standing medical challenges.
Our beloved Val (as she was affectionately called) was a sweet and gentle soul who touched the lives of many through the creative works of her hands, and through her laughter, joy, and generosity...despite life’s challenges.
Following in her mother’s footsteps, Val made cakes, bouquets, and sashes for weddings and all types of occasions; created decorative items for homes; and fashioned beautiful floral blankets and wreaths for many of Liberia’s dearly departed.
Val was preceded in death by her parents, Emanuel L. Shaw Sr., and Eugenia Cooper Shaw. She leaves to mourn her loss her siblings Emanuel L. Shaw II, Maureen Shaw, Omanza Shaw, Aletha Wade, Enrica Williams Harris, Roland A. Shaw, and Edith Kpaeyeh, as well as a host of relatives and friends.
