An active member of a local church, Ms. Shiver teaches Sunday School for children ages 6-10, is a regular speaker for Women's groups throughout the Midlands, and was awarded "Outstanding Woman of the Year" for Mt. Moriah Baptist Church.

Ms. Shiver has 2 wonderful sons.  Dearold, her oldest, lives in Blythewood, and has earned many top recognitions as a machine operator at Amcor Ridge Plastics.  His son, Christopher, is eight, and the love of Ms. Shiver's life.  She and Christopher love to do artsy and educational activities together!  Ms. Shiver's second son, Emmanuel, is a retired civil engineer from the U.S. Air Force.  He  served 10 years, deployed to Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Germany, Korea, Qatar, and Guam.
