Everett William Schaeffer

On September 23, 2015 our dad passed into glory. He lived his life to point to “Abba Father.”

So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.”
Romans 8:15 NLT

Dad was a “father” to many, and he called us his own children and desired to spend time with us.

Everett William Schaeffer, born August 7, 1917 in Peoria, IL, lived a life of service to his Father. He was preceded in death by his parents, Rev. Herbert and Mrs. Anna Kindelberger Schaeffer, his wife Roberta Amanda Fry Schaeffer, and he is the last of six siblings.

He dearly loved his four children, spouses and their families: Rev. Robert Schaeffer (Janet) of Berea, KY; Ruth Walker (Tim) of Berea, KY; Margery Justice of Wabash, IN; and Pastor David Schaeffer (Kathi) of Seminole, FL; four grandchildren: Derek Schaeffer, Jennifer Fugitt, Andy Walker and Jennifer Weaver; four great-grandchildren: Caleb and Aubrey Fugitt; Elley and Sawyer Weaver and many loved nieces and nephews.

His love for the Lord was lifelong, beginning with the day he trusted in his heart for Jesus Christ to take him to heaven when the time came for him to die. He is there now with his beloved wife Roberta and all the saints who passed through ahead of him.

Dad served in the US Army as a doctor at the end of WWII. After his service to his country, he obeyed the call of the Lord to serve his Savior for 38 years at Red Bird Mission in Beverly Kentucky as a Missionary Doctor. He is still greatly loved there and the hospital he worked in is named the Schaeffer Clinic in his honor.

After retiring from Red Bird in 1984, dad and mom moved to Berea Ky where he was a Doctor for Berea College Health Service, until his retirement in 1994.

Dad never retired from serving his Lord. He volunteered at Berea Hospital, and the Berea United Methodist Church, where he was a member for 31 years. He was involved in Body Recall and loved to recycle. He loved to correspond with many friends and family throughout the country.

Dad loved to spend time with the four of us and our families. There are many who love him wherever we have lived from Florida, Kentucky and Indiana. Dad also blessed the homes of our dearly loved cousins on the Schaeffer and Fry side of this family.

Dad’s first desire for you is that you trust in Jesus Christ to save you from the punishment of your own sins and to accept His free gift of salvation. Believe that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead to prove that He can save you. Trust that he will take you to heaven when you die.

Funeral services will be Saturday Sept. 26, 2015 at 2:00 pm at the Berea United Methodist Church, with visitation from 12 noon until 2 at the church. Visitation will also be Friday Sept. 25, 2015 at the Lakes Funeral Home Berea from 6-9 pm. Burial will be in the Berea Cemetery.

She participated in women’s groups and worked to improve the general education of all of her students at Eastern. She especially enjoyed working with freshmen and helping them navigate their first year of college.

Dr. Wright was born in Concordia, Kan. to Mary Vivian and George F. Baxter. She grew up in Russell, Kan., where her parents were educators. Her father taught high school business classes, coached various athletic teams and was Vice Principal. Her mother was a substitute teacher at the local elementary, middle and high schools before becoming a math professor at Ft. Hays State University.

Dr. Wright graduated from Kansas State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science in 1961. After graduation, she used her skills at math and statistics for jobs as an IBM programmer and as a research assistant at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C. The positions led her to realize her growing interest in economics and she received a fellowship to study at George Washington University, where she earned a Ph.D. in 1971.

First, she worked for an interest group formed by the National League of Cities – the U.S. Conference of Mayors, then at the American Bar Association and the Urban Institute.

For several years, she was a visiting professor at the State University of New York in Albany, where her husband had accepted a position. In 1982, both Drs. Wright were appointed to the faculty of Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, Ky., where they remained until they retired. Virginia Wright retired in 2000, a few years after her husband.

Soon after her husband’s death in 2008, Virginia moved to Asbury Methodist Village in Gaithersburg, Md. After teaching, her next lifelong passion was reading and in retirement she joined book clubs and discussion groups wherever she lived. She also fully embraced her stepchildren and was always available to help them whenever or however she could. Gardening was another favorite pastime. She will be remembered for her warm, welcoming smile and genuine interest in everyone she met.
