Marianne G. Shaw, age 82, passed away in Globe, Arizona, on Nov. 6, 2023. She lived in Arizona for 59 years. She was the daughter of James P. Mathews and Nell Rose Lundsford.

Marianne was a homemaker who enjoyed quilting, piano, cooking, singing, listening to gospel music and helping others.

In her younger years she enjoyed hiking, bicycling, jogging, archery, arts and crafts, painting and physical fitness activities. She enjoyed life to the fullest!
