Cynthia Shaw Obituary

Cynthia (Cindy) Shaw 69 of Choctaw passed away on November 4 2023 after a long battle with Dementia/Alzheimer's disease. She was tired and ready to spread her wings. She was born in Wichita Kansas on December 7 1953 Pearl Habor Day to Mr. Quentin and Loretta (Lee) Reid. Cindy graduated with a RN in Nursing at El Centro College in Dallas Texas in 1981. She was a wonderful nurse and had many memories of patients and fellow coworkers. She was part of the new 'Infection Unit' at Parkland Hospital in the early 1990's and worked as a supervisor of nursing. Later in life she received her master's in nursing at Oklahoma City University. She also obtained her certification in Microsoft (MCSE). The last position she held in her career was 'Professor in Nursing' at Oklahoma City Community College. With almost 35 years in nursing she dedicated her life to others unselfishly. Cindy was divorced from Gary Shaw but they remained friends throughout the years. Gary and Cindy had one child Casie (Shaw) Levering. She already had a son Michael Castleberry from a previous short marriage to Larry Castleberry in Dallas. Gary adopted Michael at the age of 10 years old and he was proud to have Michael carry his last name. Cindy's proudest moments revolved around her kids and 6 grandkids and her career. Cindy also loved her animals even in early childhood. Cindy's favorite pastimes were cooking listening to music gardening traveling caring for her animals and spending time with family and friends.
