Our beloved Mom, Grandma, Gigi, and Boo Boo, Edith K. Shiver, 86 passed away peacefully at home on Tuesday, May 10 after battling many years with cancer.
Edith was born in Cadwell, Georgia on August 22, 1935, to Menzo and LouOla Knight. She was predeceased by her husband Crawford H. Shiver, Sr., her father and mother Menzo and LouOla Knight, her two brothers, William Knight, Kenneth Knight and her sister, Diras Mullis.
She was an active member of Morningside Baptist Church and was a stay-at-home mom for many years until she started a career in real estate with Fred Williams Realty. She went on to be the broker/owner of Griner Gallery of Homes and Deck Venture Home Builders. Following her real estate career, Edith was the co-owner of Petway Cleaners with her husband Crawford.
Throughout her life she lived for others, always opening up her home to family and friends for get-togethers. She loved to cook and serve others. Her Christmas breakfast was second to none and was open to anyone who wanted to attend. If you ever wanted to treat her to something she loved, all you had to do was bring her a bushel of blue crabs. She was a master crab eater. She could pick and eat crab faster than just about anyone around.
Edith not only cherished her family and stepfamily, she also endeared herself to all who were privileged to become part of her extended family. Her generous spirit knew no bounds. Edith loved nothing more than being surrounded by friends and family.
She will be forever cherished and remembered by her by two daughters, Teresa (Gary) Bell, Pamela (James) Leavy, two sons, Vernon Griner and Tossie (Alisa) Griner, Jr., three stepchildren Crawford (Janice) Shiver, Jr., Ed (Suzanna) Shiver and Nan (Kevin) Wittendorf, twelve grandchildren, and sixteen great-grandchildren. She will be dearly missed by her siblings Grace (Louie) Rich, Lanell (John) Richardson, Patricia Davis and many nieces, nephews and friends.
A Memorial Service will be held at 1:00 pm on May 21, 2022 at the Whitefield Chapel, 9620 Ferguson Avenue, Savannah, GA.
