Doris Ann Sherwood Shaw, loving wife and mother, passed peacefully at her home in Palm Beach, Fla. on March 26 after a five-year fight with cancer. Raised in Lower Merion, Penn., Doris graduated from Boston University and moved to New York.
After meeting Leslie, her husband of 38 years, they began a life together in Palm Beach, Fla. and later with a second home in South Bristol.
Doris was a CPA with her own firm in Palm Beach. She enjoyed cooking, entertaining, sewing and gardening. Together they traveled the world looking for unique local art and happy to return home to spend the summer/fall in South Bristol where she tended her vegetable garden and set the course for their boating activities.
Doris is survived by her husband, Leslie; and daughter, Joanna and companion Christian.
A graveside service was held in Palm Beach and a memorial will be scheduled for the summer.
In her memory, donations may be made to the Sari Center, 3401 PGA Boulevard, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410, Palm Beach Gardens, a cancer support group who provided Doris with comfort and guidance during her fight.
