4 Tributes for “Mary “Diann” Schaefer

    Diann was my first aquaintance in Recreation Plantation in 2002. Our husbands, John and Dody, were formerly employed in the trades working at Mead Paper. Through that association we all became great friends. My best memories are the times we spent with them and the laughs we shared. They both often are present in my memories and I laugh again and thank God for friends like these. My life has been blessed to have known her. Diann, you are missed but never forgotten.

    While the loss of a love one is never easy, the hope the Bible gives is comforting, Re.21:4
    “He will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more”
    Our prayers are with the family

    Rest in peace Diann. We didn’t get to know you extremely well as new neighbors but we cared deeply for you and enjoyed the time we did get to spend with you.
    May God give all of you family members peace during this difficult time. She talked about her family and loved you all so much.
