Obituary for Ruth Nichols Schaefer

Ruth N. Schaefer
June 1, 1934 – June 24, 2018

Ruth Nichols Schaefer passed away from this life on Sunday, June 24, 2018 at her home in Boerne surrounded by her three loving daughters and grandson, Michael. She was 84 years old. She was born in Kerrville, TX to Everett and Eula (Hollomon) Nichols on June 1, 1934.

Ruth is survived by her two sons Herald H. Hadley and wife Debra of Kingston, MI, and Michael L. Hadley of Birch Bay, Washington; three daughters Jackie Campbell of Boerne, TX, Janice Branch and husband Clint of Graham, TX, and Sherry Brannum and husband Edwin of Gilmer, TX; four sisters Evelyn Wilshire of Tyler, TX, Bertha M. Taylor and husband Neal of Hondo, TX, Rebekah A. Burns and husband Roy of Murietta, CA, and Beverly A. Flores of Centerpoint, TX; numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and extended family members. She is preceded in death by her parents; her sister Emma Savage, her sister Viola N. James, her twin sister Ester Stokes; a brother Everett Nichols; her son Rick Hadley; her grandson William Hadley; and son-in-law Bill Campbell.

Ruth loved the Lord and would read her bible daily. She enjoyed her family, spending any time she could with them and was so proud of them. She was full of life, spunky, feisty and very plain spoken. Among other things, Ruth loved to work in her home, gardening, cooking, cleaning, music and dancing. We will not say good bye, Mom, but will see you later. Always in our hearts.

A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, July 14, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. at the Nichols Cemetery in Kerrville, TX.
