Ada Marietta Schafer went to be with the Lord Jesus on Oct. 12, 2010, in Nampa, at the age of 87.

Ada was born on Dec. 9, 1922, to Edwin and Ellen Fischer in Danube, Minn. She married her sweetheart of 66 years, Reverend Glenn W. Schafer, on June 12, 1944.

For nearly 50 years, Ada served in Christian ministry alongside her husband Glenn in Nazarene churches throughout Minnesota, Oregon, California and Idaho. Ada loved God above all, but her family came in a close second.

She found joy in entertaining friends, family, and congregation members with her amazing cooking, baking, and hospitality. Visitors to the Schafer household, whether close friends and family, or new acquaintances, never left hungry and always felt loved. She also enjoyed making floral arrangements and crafts.

Ada is survived by her husband, Glenn Schafer, of Nampa, daughter, Jilayne Adams of Irvine, Calif., daughter-in-law, Beth Schafer of Boise; her five grandchildren - Leigh Ann, Rik, David, Candace and Wendy, as well as 11 great-grandchildren.
Ada was preceded in death by her son Lee Schafer of Boise, and her five siblings Floyd Fischer, Lesley Fischer, Ervin Fischer, Pearl Schafer, and June Schafer.

A Funeral Service to honor and celebrate her life will be held at 10 a.m., on Saturday, Oct. 16, at the Alsip & Persons Funeral Chapel, 404 10th Ave. So., Nampa (466-3545). Interment will be at Kohlerlawn Cemetery at a later date.

Friends may call at the funeral chapel on Friday afternoon from 2 to 4 p.m.
Memorial contributions are welcomed through the Lee Schafer Memorial Fund at HCJB Global, 1065 Garden of the Gods, Road, Colorado Springs, CO 80907.
