Obituary for Phylis "Sue" Schaefer

Phylis "Sue" Schaefer of Bicknell, IN. passed December 9, 2020 at her residence. She was born February 15, 1939 in Washington, IN the daughter of Jess and Edith Ashby Brumett. Sue married Robert A. "Bob" Schaefer and they made their life together for 47 years until his death in December of 2008. Together they were proud to be farmers operating A&R Schaefer Farms and felt taking care of the farmland was a way to honor God. Sue and Bob were committed in helping and returning their gifts to the various philanthropic endeavors among them the Smile Train that benefits children. Many of their endeavors were never completed with expectations of acknowledgment, their belief was giving from the heart not the accolades.

She is also survived by a brother Gerald “Cork” Brumett of French Lick, IN.
