Emma “Beth” Schafer

It is with great sadness that the family of Emma “Beth” Schafer announces her passing on Wednesday, July 11, 2018 at the age of 67. Beth passed away peacefully in her sleep at her home in Chico, California. Beth was born to Goldie Peconom and Donald Schafer on August 16, 1950. She was a loving and strong individual that never let her disabilities stop her from living the best life possible. As a Graduate of Lassen High School she went on to participate in the Special Olympics, where she competed in Track and Field winning many medals during her time. Beth touched the lives of everyone that she met and she will be greatly missed.

She is preceded in death by her mother Goldie Peconom, her sister Sharon Schafer and her brother Herbert Frank Schafer. She is survived by her Nephew, Leslie Gorbet in California, her 2 great-nieces Brandie Gorbet in California and Brittney Homewytewa in Arizona, her great nephew Donald Gorbet in California, 2 great-great-nephews and 2 great-great-nieces along with many other aunts, uncles and cousins.

A memorial service will be scheduled at a later date. In lieu of flowers the family is requesting that a donation in Beth’s memory be made to the Special Olympics.


Why Pre-plan?

Thinking about your own funeral leaves most people feeling a little uneasy, but more adults are finding that pre-planning a funeral offers great emotional and even financial security for them and their families. With pre-planning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted. It also gives them peace of mind to not have to make important decisions at a stressful time. Click here to visit Walton’s Funeral Home
