Obituary

Alice W. Shaw, 92, a resident of Annapolis, MD for eighty years and previously of Deale, MD died of Alzheimer's disease on Monday, September 30th at her home, surrounded by her loving family and her faithful dog, Mojo. Born on April 16, 1927, in Deale, MD to the late Joseph and Agnes Whittington, Alice graduated from Annapolis High School and worked at Read’s Drugstore on Main Street as a “soda jerk” before becoming a Bank Teller at Annapolis Bank and Trust for 46 years. Legend has it that customers would wait in Alice’s line just to see her, even though other Teller lines were empty. In 1951, she married her high school sweetheart, Gilbert, and together they raised two daughters in the Homewood neighborhood. Alice was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa in her 40’s and although she gradually lost her vision, she was always smiling and enjoying life, especially when there was music as she loved to dance. She was a member of Ladies of the Elks and she adored Mojo, her Papillion, who remained by her side until the end.

Alice was preceded in death by her husband of 63 years, Gilbert B. Shaw and her siblings, Carl and Conley Whittington, Naomi Stevens and Marjorie Parkinson. She is survived by her daughters, Vicki Shaw (Mike Jeffery) and Laurie Shaw Maglio (Tommy Sines) both of Annapolis, MD; her sister, Annamae Aisquith of Riva, MD; her sister-in-law Dorothy Nichols of Annapolis, MD and her grandchildren, Ryan and Carly Maglio and Julian and Natalie Jeffery and many nieces and nephews. Friends are invited to celebrate Alice's life on Monday, October 7th from 1 to 3 pm and 6 to 8 pm at the Kalas Funeral Home & Crematory, 2973 Solomons Island Rd., Edgewater, MD where her funeral service will be held on Tuesday, October 8th at 10 am. Interment will follow at Hillcrest Memorial Cemetery in Annapolis, MD.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Foundation Fighting Blindness, which can be found online at donate.fightingblindness.org, by mail at PO Box 45740, Baltimore, MD 21297-5740 or by calling 1-800-683-5555.
