Louvenia Barbara Shaw, age 82, was born in Umatilla, Florida the daughter of Bobby Holsey and Priscilla Brown. She was an only child and was raised by her aunt Hattie Holsey in Umatilla, after the passing of her beloved mother at the age of 2.
Louvenia was the mother of seven children, Leonard Holsey, George Shaw Jr., Alvin Shaw, Timothy Shaw, Mary Shaw, Bernita Shaw and Sheila Henderson. Even though early in her life she lost her three boys Alvin, Timothy and George Jr., and her daughters Mary and Bernita due to tragedy, unforeseen accidents and suffered many medical setbacks, she always held on to her faith in God and He showed himself mighty in her life.
Louvenia "Nanny" as we call her, loved to bake and would often make "goodies" for the family to enjoy. She was a great cook and Thanksgiving was one of her favorite holidays. She loved to gather the family and see all her children and grandchildren together in fellowship.
The Lord in His infinite wisdom deemed it timely to call our beloved Louvenia "Nanny" to her eternal resting place in a quiet and peaceful way on April 19, 2018.
Louvenia leaves to cherish her memory, son Leonard Holsey Sr.; daughter Sheila Henderson; grandchildren Byron Shaw, Nikita Holsey, Joseph Fudge Jr., Leon Holsey, Jr., Nashard Geather, Markice Shaw, Gloria Shaw, Timothy Holsey, Jasmine Powell, Amber Powell; great grandchildren Kiera Fudge, Byron Shaw Jr., Dolante Shaw, Dovante Shaw, Dessiah Holsey, Lauren Henderson, Teigan Holsey and other relatives and friends.
