Shaw S Delores 2014Sister Delores Shaw, SNJM

Sister M. Rose Delphine

December 27, 1933 - July 12, 2016

The only child of Marie (Millette) and Delbert Shaw, Delores was born in Yakima, WA, December 27, 1933. The family moved to Seattle in 1941 where her father was seeking employment. Here she met the Sisters of the Holy Names. Her mother died when Delores was 14 years old and her father decided to send Delores to Holy Names Academy. After graduation she worked as a nurse’s aide at Providence Hospital and attended Seattle University. These were powerful influences and increased a latent desire in her to be a teacher and perhaps a Sister teacher. On July 25, 1953, she took the train to Portland, OR, and a bus to the SNJM Novitiate at Marylhurst, OR, where she and 43 others began their lives as Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary. Delores made her final vows on August 5, 1960. She earned a B.Ed. at Marylhurst College in 1959 and Masters in Ministry from Seattle U in 1982.
