Sue Brown Shaw passed away Friday, February 17th at St. Thomas West in Nashville. She was born August 15, 1944 to the late William S. and Gweneva (Baucom) Brown in Murfreesboro, TN. Sue was raised in Nashville and graduated from Litton High School. Once her children were all in school, she went to college and earned her associates degree in physical therapy from Volunteer State Community College. She used her training as a physical therapy assistant to help children in Sumner County Schools. However, she was most grateful for her training as a physical therapy assistant because she was better able to care for her son Bill after he was injured in a car accident. She devoted her life to Bill’s care. She was also very active in the Brain Injury Association of TN following his injury. Sue was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Sue enjoyed reading, gardening, shopping, and was especially fond of spending time with her grandchildren. Sue is survived by her husband of 54 years, Leonard R. Shaw Jr.; her son, William R. Shaw; her daughters, Kathryn Breeding and Rebecca Harrison (Chad Harrison); her grandchildren: Zane Breeding, Anne-Marie Breeding, Carter Breeding, Cainan Harrison and Caiah Harrison; and her beloved dog, Mickey. Visitation will be held Tuesday, February 21st from 4-8 pm at Hendersonville Memorial Gardens and Funeral Home. A celebration of life service will be held Wednesday at 3 pm with interment at Hendersonville Memory Gardens. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Brain Injury Association of TN or to Powerfully Positive, Inc.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Sue and I have been out of touch since I went back to work, but I’ve always felt the world a better place for her being in it. I think the lights in the heavens are a little dimmer today in recognition of the life she lived while here. Love and regards to family and friends, especially Billy & Butch. May the Lord bless you with comfort and joy in the many loving memories of the time you had together.

    Butch,so sorry for your loss. Stay strong. Sue was a sweet girl. Seems like yesterday we were all kids at Litton.

    Deepest condolences from Mary Ann and I. So glad I got to see her recently at the our 55th Litton class reunion.

    Butch, I was so sorry to learn of Sue’s death. She was such a beautiful person inside and out! I have tried to send condolences earlier, but not sure went through. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I miss you Sue…you were like a second Mother to Me. You always made time for me even on your busiest days. You tirelessly cared for Bill and you were a loving Mother to Becca and Kathy….Your Grandkids were your pride and joy. You were an Angel here on Earth. We all miss you terribly. I know Bill and Butch are lost without you. Love You Sue
