Patricia Batty Shaw
She was educated at Wimbledon High School, and trained as a medical social worker (almoner) at Southampton University. She then worked at Guy's Hospital and St Thomas' Hospital. She married Anthony Batty Shaw, a consultant physician, in 1954 and took his double-barrelled surname. They later lived in Norwich, then nearby Barford, where she joined the Barford and Wramplingham Women's Institute, becoming its secretary. She became the National Federation's chair of education, vice-chair, and eventually in 1977, its chair.
She also served in other voluntary roles, for example chairing the Norfolk Rural Community Council; as president of the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association in 1993, and county president of the Girl Guides; and as a magistrate and chairman of the Wymondham bench.
