Mrs. Shaker was born in Danbury, September 29, 1926, a daughter of Antous M. and Florence (Shaker) Antous. A lifelong Danbury resident, she attended Danbury schools.

She was known to some as ‘Speedy” or “The Energizer Bunny” as she was always in a hurry. She could never be late and always the first to leave. She was a true Yankee lover. Her favorite things to do were Bingo, trips to the Mohegan Sun and spending time at the Danbury Fair Mall with her “buds”.
