Autumn Lee Schaefer


Autumn Lee Schaefer of Bandera passed peacefully away hours before scheduled delivery at Methodist Hospital in San Antonio.
She was born an angel to the Lord through Quincy and Shannon Lee Schaefer on Tuesday, Dec. 29. During the 40 weeks she was with us here on earth, Autumn presented us with a lifetime of love.
She is survived by her loving parents, Quincy Neil and Shannon Lee Schaefer; grandparents, Henry and Lee Schaefer and John and Sandra Griffith; great-grandparents, Della Schaefer, Jewel Shaefer, Nicolasa and Lenard Lopez; and aunts and uncles, Shaun and Teresa Schaefer, Janelle and Shaun Ringersma, Dixi and Jeremiah Garcia, Danielle and Mario Lopez, Seth and Tina Schaefer and John and Estella Griffith, as well as by several loving cousins, ranging in age from 15 years to just under a month.
Autumn was greeted in heaven by her great-grandparents, Fred Henry Schaefer, June Wright, William Clyde Wright and Willard Griffith, along with her uncles, Billy Clyde Wright and Jesse Cantu.
Graveside services will be held at 2 pm, Saturday, Jan. 9, at Bandera Cemetery with Pastor David Collett of the First Baptist Church of Bandera officiating.
We wish to extend our sincere thanks to our family, friends and church members who have so generously given time and resources to assist us in our time of need. Special thanks go out to Dr. John Kellum, nurse D'lynn, Dr. Dubois and the entire staff in the women's specialty unit at Methodist hospital.
Through the power of Christ and fellowship we have managed to stay afloat in these troubled waters. Without those mentioned above, none of this would be possible. Again, thank you so much for all the love and compassion.
