Obituary for Mosolene Shaw (Kelley)

Mosolene (Kelley) Shaw passed away peacefully on November 21, 2018, surrounded by family, friends and faith. Born in Ozark County on June 27, 1926, to parents Etta Mae (Pellham) Kelley and Louie Kelley, Mosolene lived most of her life in Springfield, MO, building her family with husband Homer Quentin Shaw, who preceded her in death. She leaves a loving legacy of service of others. As a mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, church matriarch, school teacher and defense plant inspector during World War II, Mosolene lived her life as a selfless and faithful care-giver.

In addition to her parents and husband, Mosolene is preceded in death by her brothers Don, Leon, Arnold and Eugene Kelley, and sister Oveta Kelley Clayton. She is survived by her son, Larry Shaw; daughter-in-love, Cindy Shaw; brother Doyle Kelley and his wife Clara; grandchildren Jason, Michael, Sara, Kenneth and Shawna Shaw, Shannon Gage and Shad Phillips; a special niece, Dolores Ray; many other nieces and nephews; and many great-grandchildren. Also surviving her is her chosen family from the First General Baptist Church of Springfield and the many fortunate souls to have been blessed by her love, charity and kindness. For many, she was lovingly known as "Granny".
Visitation will be on Friday, November 23, 2018 from 10:00 to 11:00 am in Greenlawn Funeral Home South.
Services will follow at 11:00 am followed by a graveside service in Pontiac Cemetery.
