Mary Jane (Callahan) Shaffer Obituary
Through a time of unbelievable pain, we know that this precious woman is realizing her dream - to be with her Savior. Her homegoing is bittersweet - bitter for those of us left behind but indescribably sweet for her.
Born to John and Myrtle Callahan in Keota, Oklahoma, she came to California with her family and graduated in 1953 from Delano High School. Married that summer, she spent the next 62 years with Nolan Shaffer.
She became Mom to Rhonda (Shaffer) Palmer (Larrie) and David Shaffer (Vivian); amazing Big Grandma to 5 - Crystal (Palmer) Justice (Scott); Kiera (Palmer) Farrar (Joseph); Joshua Palmer (Kayla); Cody Palmer (Dacia); and Steven Shaffer; and great-grandmother to 7. She is also survived by her sisters, Elsie (Callahan) Morgan and Ann (Callahan) Badgley.
No longer in pain but already sorely missed. We are grateful to God for His mercies.
Viewing is on Friday, August 7th from 5 pm to 8 pm at Mission Family Mortuary 531 California Avenue. Graveside Service will be August 8th at 9:30 am at Union Cemetery with a memorial following at 11:00 am at First Assembly of God 4901 California Avenue.
Donations to First Assembly of God would be welcomed.
