Barbara L. (Lammert) Shaw, 88, of North Stonington, passed away peacefully on September 17, 2019 at Apple Rehab Mystic. Born in Rockwell, IL on March 24, 1931, she was the daughter of the late George and Eleanor D. (Danker) Lammert.
Barbara was the backbone of the family and would do anything for them. She enjoyed cooking and gathering the family together to share in a meal, hosting parties and just taking care of others before herself. During her earlier years, she had a career as a bridge director and still balanced life caring for her children and making sure to raise them right as they started families of their own. Through the years, she spent time in her garden and loved all animals, but especially dogs, whales, birds, and her koi pond. She was a life master in Bridge and loved playing with everyone. Most importantly, she loved her family and was a mother to all, she will be dearly missed.
She leaves her son Steven Shaw, twin daughters Sue Shaw and Sandy Gaccione and Jeffrey Paul Shaw; her eight grandchildren Dani, Spencer, Luke, Sara, Katie, Crystal, Kurtis and Jamie. She was predeceased by her twin sons Kenneth Jr. and Richard Shaw. She joins them in rest along with her parents and her late brother Paul.
A graveside service will be held at 10:30am on Friday, September 20, 2019 at St. Michael Cemetery, Pawcatuck, CT. Buckler-Johnston Funeral Home, 121 Main Street, Westerly, RI.
