October 27, 1953 ~ April 17, 2007
Deborah Ann Shaw Eckenberg passed from this life on Tuesday April 17th, 2007 after a courageous and spirited battle with cancer. Her amazing love will be missed more than words can express. Not only was she a strong woman but a wonderful friend, a brave daughter, and caring sister. Her zest for life was unmatched by any most have ever seen. An accomplished business woman and avid traveler, she enjoyed life to the fullest. We would like everyone to know we have not lost her. We know that she is at peace and at home with Our Lord. Her determination could not be topped when she put her mind to accomplishing any goal. Truly an inspiration was her kind, caring heart. She was a blessing and a true gift to all who knew and loved her. She is survived by: her daughter, Cameron Stutzman and husband Sean (Fort Worth, Texas), her grandson Shaw Stutzman, her ex-husband, Chuck Eckenberg (Las Vegas, Nevada), her parents Ann and A.D Shaw (San Antonio, Texas), her siblings Dr. Don Shaw and wife Peggy (Groves, Texas), Dean Shaw (Washington D.C), Dana Shaw (Fort Lauderdale, Florida) , Danny Shaw and wife Elaine (Bulverde, Texas), Doug Shaw and wife Barbara (Houston, Texas), Kristin Buchanan and husband David (Celina, Texas), and 15 nieces and nephews.
