Matteal Moore Shaw was born March 10, 1937, to the late Luke and Regina Moore. Matteal was a true believer in great work ethics and displayed those in her everyday life. She worked for over 20 years at ITT Automotive. After its closure, she became a full-time grandmother to her grandchildren and her greatest hobby – growing flowers. “Muddear”, as she was fondly called, even by her nieces and nephews, was the mother to all she encountered.
