St. Andrews Administrator Gil Shew retires after 25 years

On Monday November 23, 1998, Gil Shew accepted the position of Administrator of McCready Manor on the St. Andrews campus located just off Tates Creek Avenue. Bill Young and the Board of Directors offered Gil Shew the position, and he accepted their offer. According to Gil, it was the answer to his prayer and his family’s prayers.

Now, on Friday, November 17, 2023 Gil Shew stepped down from his position at McCready Manor and the St. Andrews Retirement Community. It will be the beginning of a new era at St. Andrews, and the answer to Gil’s recent prayers.

Gil Shew witnessed the expansion of St. Andrews Retirement Community since coming to work. Three more phases of condominiums have been added. Telford Terrace has been built and is Medicare and Medicaid Certified. Ten acres across Grey Oaks Drive has been purchased. In addition, St. Andrews Retirement Community has survived the pandemic.

Gil was quoted in a recent McCready Manor newsletter that he has “experienced the love and support of the resident angels living on our campus.” Gil was also quoted “I tell family members it is my staff that is doing a great job. They are the best, especially at making me look good.”

During his time at St. Andrews Retirement Community, Gil became a licensed nursing home administrator and a Certified Director of Assisted Living. Recently, Gil Shew was awarded the Community Service Award by the Richmond Chamber of Commerce.

For the record, Gil Shew is my brother, and my family and I are very proud of his accomplishments at St. Andrews Retirement Community. In February, Gil and Kathy Lawson Shew will celebrate 44 years of marriage. They have two daughters Melissa Toutant and her husband Chris and Ameilia Trinh and her husband Bradley. Gil and Kathy also have four grandchildren:  Abbey Toutant, Levi Toutant, Delta Trinh, and Sonny Trinh.

Well done, good and faithful servant.
