CHAMPION – Lewis M. Shinaberry, 93, of Champion, returned home to be with his Lord and his beloved wife on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, at his home surrounded by his family.

He was born January 16, 1929 in Cass, W.Va., the son of the late Edgar Shinaberry and the late Mary Burns Shinaberry White.

Lewis was a graduate of Greenbank High School in West Virginia. After graduating, he was drafted into the army in 1951, to serve his country, until he was honorably discharged in 1953.

After serving in the military, he attended trade school in West Virginia. He then moved to Ohio, where he met the love of his life, Barbara Soliday, and married her on July 26, 1954. Lewis was a foreman for American Welding for 34 years. After his retirement, he did many odd jobs to keep himself busy. Lewis helped break new ground for Grace Baptist Church, where he was prominent in the church. At one time he served as Chief Deacon, Chief Usher and Financial Treasurer and he and his wife were members for over 40 years. For his enjoyment, Lewis enjoyed spending time with his family and grandchildren. His greatest hobby was squirrel hunting with his brother, Tom, and nephew, Lawrence. He always brought home the lines for his two youngest daughters.

Lewis will be sadly 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 a great-great-granddaughter.

Lewis was predeceased by his beloved wife, Barbara, who died August 1, 2021; and his parents and brothers, Ted, Gale, Tom, Danny and Ronnie and his son-in-law, Scott Worron.

Lewis is a man who will never be forgotten. A man whom many admired and loved.

Family and friends may visit from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Monday, November 7, 2022 at Grace Baptist Church of Champion, 5418 Mahoning Ave., Warren, OH 44483, where a funeral service will follow at 11:30 a.m. William Sprague and Lawrence Shinaberry will officiate.

Entombment will take place at Crown Hill Burial Park, Vienna. The family would like to thank all the private carers who had so much love for our father – they couldn’t have done this without you all.
