CHAMPION, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Lewis .M Shinaberry, 93 of Champion, went home to be with his Lord and his loving wife on Tuesday, November 1, 2022 at his home surrounded by his family.

He was born on January 16, 1929 in Cass, West Virginia, the son of the late Edgar Shinaberry and Mary (Burns) Shinaberry White.

Lewis was a graduate of Greenbank High School in West Virginia.

After graduating he was drafted into the United States Army in 1951 to serve his country until he was honorably discharged in 1953.

He then moved to Ohio where he met the love of his life, Barbara Soliday and married on July 26, 1954.

Lewis helped break ground for Grace Baptist Church where he was very much a big part of the church. At one time he was head deacon, head usher and Financial Treasurer. He and his wife were members for over 40 years.

For his enjoyment, Lewis loved spending time with his family and grandchildren. His biggest hobby was going squirrel hunting with his brother, Tom and his nephew, Lawrence. He would always bring home the tails for his two younger daughters.

Lewis will be deeply missed by his four daughters, Mary Lou (Tom) Killeen, Cindy Worron, Patricia (Benjamin Rowe) Fennell and Twila (Ted) Zandarski and his sister, Rebecca (Phil ) Evans. He leaves behind 11 grandchildren, Dawn, Ann and Lewis Killeen, Michael, Kayla and Billy Frazier, Ashley and James Reed, Nicholas Fennell, Noah and Adam Worron; 21 great-grandchildren and one great-great-granddaughter.
