Lura Mae Schafer

April 18, 1920 – June 14, 2020


Lura Mae (Morse) Schafer, 100, of Quilcene, Washington passed away peacefully at home on June 14, 2020.

Lura Mae was born in Quilcene on April 18, 1920, to Charles Morse and Alice (Lee) Morse the second of three children.

After graduating from Quilcene High School in 1938, Lura Mae married Clifford Schafer on September 16, 1939, and they raised two sons, Michael & Jeffrey.

Shortly after their marriage they hiked to the top of Mt. Jupiter to firewatch for the summer. It was very rugged living at the top of the mountain and the family has heard many stories about their adventures while up there.

Lura Mae lived most of her life in Quilcene. She was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Quilcene. As a young woman she worked for the local telephone company. She enjoyed square dancing, traveling in their travel trailer, bowling, baking, working in their yard and quilting with the Presbyterian Women’s Quilting Group.

Lura Mae is survived by sons Mike (Marge) Schafer and Jeff (Lynn) Schafer, four grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by husband Clifford Schafer, brother Cecil Morse, sister Marjorie Morse Coffland and her parents.

Memorial contributions can be made to Quilcene Presby. Church PO Box 387, Quilcene, WA 98376 or Jefferson Co. Hospice 2500 W Sims Way #300, Port Townsend, WA 98368.
