Dec. 10, 1944-Oct. 5, 2020

Margaret Cloutier Shaw, 75, passed away Oct. 5, 2020, peacefully at home.  She was born to Peter Emmanuel and Henrietta Lambre Cloutier in Natchitoches Dec. 10, 1944.

She was always quick to share her fond stories of growing up on her family’s farm as well as memories of attending St. Mary’s Catholic School where she graduated before attending Loyola University in New Orleans.  It was the first week of college when she met the love of her life, Barry, and the two have been inseparable for the past 54 years. They married in 1966 and landed in Jacksonville Beach, Fla., by 1970, where they put down roots and started a family.  Margaret joined her husband at his family’s CPA firm and became a partner. Throughout her life, she took great pride in her work; above all else she valued family and friends.

Margaret is survived by her loving husband, Barry; son, Travis (Devon); and grandchildren, Jade, Paris and Preston.

She was preceded in death by her son, Alex; sister, Carolyn Evans (Joe); and brothers, Peter Cloutier (Susan) and Jerry Cloutier.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 23 in St. Paul’s Catholic Church of Jacksonville Beach with the Rev. William Kelly as Celebrant.
