When coming up with a name we all decided we wanted it to be unique, to feel old, and to have something to do with a bird and have some personal connection. This was harder than we thought it would be. But one day when brainstorming and talking about our family and family names, Everett and Allie’s seemed the obvious choice. It was unique, old, Allie’s nickname was “birdie”, and it had the personal connection we were looking for.
Everett and Allie Keys Shaw are the late grandparents of Linda. Everett retired from Ft. Knox and Allie was a homemaker, who enjoyed quilting and singing in the church choir at First Baptist Church. They were her two favorite people in the world and had a huge influence in her life. They moved to Brandenburg from Breckinridge County when Linda’s dad, Billy, and her Aunt Wilma were in elementary school. Linda’s fondest memories of her youth included her “Mimi and Granddad." They were good people who loved their grandchildren, made each of them feel special and tried to pass on good values and life skills.
A Gift for Everyone and Every Occasion
