Aldyne Travers Shaver

1917 - 2021



Aldyne Shaver passed away on April 14, 2021, in Surprise, Arizona, at the tender age of 104.  Aldyne was born on February 28, 1917, in Grand Forks, North Dakota. She bravely ventured off on her own at the age of 18 to Salt Lake City where she took up a job as a nanny and then went to school to learn Morse code.   With this education, she obtained a job at the airport tower, quite an accomplishment for a woman born in the early 1900’s.  While in Salt Lake she met her husband Benjamin. They fell in love and enjoyed 57 wonderful years of marriage. Because of her ability to do Morse code, she also landed a job in the Navy during World War II.  

Ben and Aldyne moved to Bremerton, Washington and had two daughters. Later they relocated to Richland, Washington when Ben accepted a job at General Electric (GE) and Aldyne began utilizing her sewing skills at a local drapery business.   She decided to change careers and obtained employment in the medical field where she was promoted into management. After many happy years in Richland, her husband was transferred to GE in San Jose, California and Aldyne continued working in the medical field.  She had an amazing work ethic and continued to work full time until the age of 65. After retirement, she lived in New Mexico and Arizona.  Her favorite hobbies included traveling the world, spending time with family and friends, being active at church, crafting, and taking care of children and animals.  She loved celebrations and was the center of attention at social gatherings with her vibrant personality and her bold sense of fashion.  After the loss of her husband Ben, she missed the companionship.  With her outgoing nature, over the years she was able to enjoy the company of three special men, Carl, Paul, and Bob.

She is proceeded in death by her parents (Fred and Grace Travers), 6 siblings Van, Omer, Ruth, Gertrude, Grace and Fred.

She was the loving mother of 2 daughters Susie Mahoney and Sandy Hildner (Rick).  She had many generations of grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins.  She spread an abundance of joy to multiple generations and was a great role model.  She will be deeply missed by all. A small family memorial is being held. A Celebration of Life will take place around her birthday to honor her life.

Our family suggests memorials for Aldyne be made to either an animal rescue organization or a charity of your choice.

My sweet Grandma I miss her and being able to call her and getting to talk with her. I know she is with the Lord, she shared her faith in Jesus Christ with me. We are truly blessed to have that hope and knowledge that she is still alive in Christ today just as she was before. We will miss celebrating her birthdays that brought our family together the last decade. I know she is reunited with Grandpa and other family members who went before her that knew the Lord. Even knowing this there still is a void. If she can here here me, I love you and miss being able to talk to you. 7 o'clock at night is when we use to talk and I still pause at that hour. 
Love your grandson
