Carola D. Shave

July 9, 1934 ~ April 28, 2019 (age 84)



Carola D. Shave wife of Jerald “Jerry” Shave died peacefully after three weeks in Crouse Hospital and six weeks of loving care at Francis House. She died of complication of an aortic aneurysm on Sunday, April 28, 2019 

She is survived by her beloved, Jerry, two children: Margaret Carter and Keith and Shirley Carter: a step-brother John Diaz and his three daughters and son; and Jerry’s four children, Dick, Peggy, Ginny and John and their seven grandchildren. These she loved as her own. 

Her passion was following Jesus, loving her husband, her children and buying them gifts. She loved beauty, books, birds and T.V. She liked to cook, but dining out was more fun. 

Donations can be made in her memory to the Plymouth Church Memorial fund or to Francis House. 

The Family thanks all the kind people who have been so supporting and caring to Carola and us in this difficult time.

The service Celebrating her Life will be held at the Plymouth
